Beyond, the modern designer kitchen and family room offer an airy, inspiring space for preparing a feast, savouring a coffee or unwinding after a long day. Well-placed skylights in the kitchen’s cathedral ceiling maximize the natural light over the centre island; a focal point of the space with its waterfall edge and breakfast bar.

Patio doors exit to a perfect downtown Toronto oasis with a wonderful mix of sun, shade and privacy. Multiple seating areas, contemporary lights and easy-care perennials work in harmony to create a seasonal living space that enchants. Capped off with a rare two-car garage with bonus storage off a wide laneway.

The second storey continues the thoughtful blending of modern and heritage elements. A king-sized master bedroom provides a serene retreat with an attached dressing room and plenty of storage. The luxurious bathroom’s elegance is underscored by clean lines and a neutral palette. Not to be overlooked, the second bedroom is large, bright and airy.

Finally, the versatile third storey is an open and inspiring space. With a second full bathroom, it serves as a potential guest space, studio or office and is large enough to be all three.
