‘Brady Bunch house’ renovation sparked by Olympic goal
Family moves from custom-refurbished century home to a late-1960s bungalow to bring their son closer to his national riding-team dreams
By 
Marni and Ian Morton fondly refer to the 1969 bungalow they bought two years ago as the “Brady Bunch house.”
 
Just like the TV sitcom family’s home of the same era, there were exposed brick walls in the harvest-gold kitchen; the dining room was avocado green.
 
Despite the dated decor and design, the Mortons knew before they crossed “the moat” — a water feature with narrow bridge at the front door — they’d found their next home on the 10-acre property in the Clarington countryside, north of Bowmanville. They sold their century house in Cobourg that they had lovingly renovated top to bottom.
 
THEN: An unusual water feature at the front door, dubbed “the moat” by homeowners Marni and Ian Morton, was the first change the couple made to the house.

The move was prompted by their son Kyle’s passion for horse sport and his quest to make the Canadian three-day eventing team to compete in the Olympics. Kyle, then 12, was riding six days a week with 2012 Olympic rider Michele Mueller and the hour-long drive each way from their Cobourg home to Mueller’s area stable was getting tedious. The Mortons decided to move closer to support their son’s ambitions.
 
“This house had been for sale for a long time and hadn’t received a single offer,” says Morton, of the Clarington bungalow. “It had been well maintained but it was outdated, very dark and there was a lot of brick and wood. It just needed someone to take a chance. We wanted to transform it into something modern.”
 
THEN: Interior brick and too many walls closed off sighlines and natural light in the home’s interior.

In addition to the Cobourg house they owned for 12 years, the couple had also renovated their first home in Bramalea and weren’t intimidated at the prospect of upgrading the 1,600-square-foot bungalow.
 
“It’s a big property with a lot of lawn and rolling hills and not many people want to maintain all that,” says Ian. They liked that the property backed onto conservation land. And it had a barn that can accommodate Kyle’s horses when they retire from competition.
 
 
For seven months, the family lived in the basement of the bungalow and in their horse trailer while the main floor was gutted. The “moat” was one of the first things to go.
 
THE NUMBERS:
 
$749,900: Original purchase price
 
$100,000: Cost of renovation, to date
 
7: Family members in the house — 3 humans, 2 dogs, 2 guinea pigs. (Three horses are boarded elsewhere.)
 
#1: Priorty on the reno list of “the moat” at the front door
 
2: Islands in the new kitchen
