Very colourful: reminds me of Switzerland
Beverly Andrighetti: It really does, Chris. The family is originally from Northern Italy, not that far from the Austrian border.
Different and colourful Bev can you tell me more about it.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thanks, Martin. This is the home of my sister-in-law & her husband. The front of the house is original with a large newer addition on the back. The paintings you see here were done by their daughter, a well-known Toronto artist and photographer.

Great work by you both
Beverly Andrighetti: So kind of you to say, Tony. Many thanks.
A lovely display Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, the house, inside and out, is a real gem, Ron. Thank you.
Given the Ontario winters, I wonder how often they have to re-paint?
Beverly Andrighetti: Good point, Tom. I'll have to ask the artist if she has had to do some retouching of the original artwork over the years.
What a spectacular building, is the whole house like this?
Beverly Andrighetti: What you see here, Brian, is the upper part of the original house. There is a large modern addition that has been built to follow the shape of a ravine that was in the back. The only thing you can see from the street is this part of the house. The addition is not visible.
It makes a refreshing change form bricks, it looks like a framed painting with the wood all around smile
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you, Linda. It is a very original property.
