“Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness” – Frank Gehry

Distinct from many other custom home builders, we create unique residences that are truly exceptional in quality and detail.

“Nobody is perfect, but we strive for it. We focus on the workmanship, and quality of the materials we use. We want our projects to turn out beautiful, and our home buyer/client to be happy.”

We consider the entire reality: the value of the home, both now and future, and the surrounding neighborhood. Based on all those factors, we make different decisions. Sometimes we’ll even alter building plans during the building process.

We take pride in our company’s philosophy to build the very best, one-of-a-kind custom home.  Our fully managed services and signature design-build process will provide you with key advantages that other builders simply can’t offer.

Call us today and bring our project management skills and extensive construction experience to your next custom built home project.  Our skilled professionals are extremely personable and committed to each project.


The GlassBridge House in The Kingsway area of Etobicoke – Design / Build – 2015

After 8 months of searching, we fell in love with Rose Barroso’s “Glassbridge” home at first viewing. I don’t think there is room for any doubt about the aesthetics and craftsmanship put into the design and execution of her houses. Prior to moving we spent 20 years living in a condominium. As a result, the trepidation we felt as first time home buyers was over any possible questions or issues surrounding our new home that may arise. Those concerns were immediately put to rest by Rose’s prompt and reassuring responses. Even while away on a family vacation she took the time to help us out on matters that could have most assuredly waited. Finding someone with that much passion about what they do is a rarity. Furthermore, Rose’s team are helpful, accommodating, friendly and patient. It really made the transition seamless and most of all enjoyable.

The Hillside House, Edenbridge, Humber Valley area of Etobicoke Design / Build – 2015

I know it has been a while but I never got around to writing this. It is hard to believe we have been at The Hillside House for over 1 year already. Barroso Homes has provided my family and I with exceptional service. Rose Barroso worked with me and relayed messages to the all the trades in order to get all issues resolved when it was necessary. Any questions concerns were always responded to quickly. Barroso Homes builds beautiful homes but more than that their service is touched by kindness of their staff.

The Providence House in the Huber Valley area of Etobicoke – Design / Build – 2008

“We had viewed a number of beautiful homes in the Kingsway/Humber Valley area over the course of a few months. When we walked through the doors of “The Providence House”, my wife fell in love with it. Our realtor, who has been well established in these neighborhoods for 25 years, commented on the quality of the work and craftsmanship of the builder. Rose and Jorge have tremendous passion for their business and take great pride in their work. They have gone above and beyond our expectations, to answer any questions or address any concern or request we have made. Rose has contacted and organized all of the trades that have been required and they have resolved any issue that was necessary. I would be confident in referring Rose and Jorge to anyone that is interested in a new home.”

Hunthill Court, Etobicoke – Design Only – 2014

We recently decided to build our first Toronto home, and turned to Barroso Homes for the design. We’ve always loved the look of a contemporary home, and when we saw some of Rose’s work, we were certain that we would be a great match Rose and her Architect were very personable and educational. We were beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Rose and her Team Rose provided us with beautiful design options, and made the process easy and enjoyable. We hope to work together again in the future!

ARTHouse7 in the Edenbridge,  Humber Valley area of Etobicoke – Design / Build 2013

We had a vision for our new home and our vision was brought to life when we saw our current house from Barroso homes. The building quality is to a high specification and there is not a single aspect of our home that we would change or have concern over. The structure, fixtures and fittings meet our high expectations. We were certainly not disappointed in our choice.

Post purchase, Mrs. Barroso is just a phone call away in case of any questions or services needed. The personal service delivery we have received from her has been exceptional at all levels.

Rose, you have created a great home for us that we will always cherish. Thank you for building our beautiful, dream home. We are very proud of it.
