The new home: This FLW inspired home sits on a high point of its surrounding 100 acres. It was built on a granite ridge that rises 20 feet above the general lay of the land at the front of the property. The overall goal with the design was to build an innovative home where “light, air and vista permeated the whole with a sense of unity" and fit the natural surroundings. There is an emphasis on natural light so there are lots of windows and they are large. The east facing front wall of the great room has windows that start at the floor and rise 14 feet. There are large corner windows at each end of the building to maximize the view and the light. Throughout attention was given to airflow and most windows open to catch the air.
Rancho Relaxo is located just north of Orillia with its charming heritage downtown, and beautiful lakefront park, Couchiching Park. It is an easy drive into Orillia with its interesting shops, restaurants and attractions. A 30 minute day trip drive can take you south to Barrie or north to Muskoka each with a huge variety of things to see and do.
