Opulently curated and meticulously restored by the current owner, this late 1890s residence has been rebuilt “back to bricks” to create 5,200 square feet of elegant living space reminiscent of a grand European townhouse. The 30x149 lot includes a large garden and a rare, four-car private driveway.
The rooms are impressively proportioned throughout; the soaring ceilings are enhanced on the ground floor by custom cornice moulding and walnut herringbone floors. A distinctly international flair that is rare in Toronto permeates the property. The uncommon width and depth enable a stunning enfilade of rooms which flow for gracious entertaining or can be closed off independently for cozy family life. The large European windows ensure that each room is flooded with light.
Marvel at all the extraordinary craftsmanship throughout. The painstakingly-sourced, historical architectural works by European and Asian master artisans seamlessly blend into the contemporary construction to create a patina of pedigree. The classical bones of the house are kept fresh, relevant and chic with an overlay of whimsical flourishes and contemporary decoration incorporating nods to modern design giants such as David Hicks.
The bespoke kitchen was handcrafted in England by the renowned Smallbone of Devizes Group and stocked with top-brand appliances to meld old-world charm with modern-day practicality. Similarly, all the marble and travertine-clad bathrooms boast custom vanities and fixtures from Perrin and Rowe, the iconic British supplier of bathroom fixtures, to Claridge’s and The Savoy in London!
A floating glass & wood staircase divides the three levels. The serene, third-floor retreat has a charming sitting room with a custom gas fireplace, and the wet bar is ideal for early morning coffee or a nightcap. Large French doors magnify the natural light and lead to an open private rooftop garden and lounge area.
You will be impressed by the storage that abounds throughout the finished lower level, featuring a sizeable gym with large windows overlooking the garden, a large recreation room, and a separate in-law suite and laundry.
Those with a refined palate will celebrate the thought process behind every meticulous detail. Each room plays a key role in showcasing the exceptional taste of this home. We present to you one of the largest and most beautifully crafted homes, on one of the most prestigious streets, in one of the most coveted neighbourhoods in Toronto.
