As the purveyor of houseporn.ca and the boutique real estate shingle urbaneer.com, I recently had the pleasure of showing my clients this breath-taking condominium in the tony Summerhill neighbourhood of Toronto offered for $4,750,000
One of six units which each encompass an entire floor - where the elevator opens up directly into each suite - this 3300 square foot 'sky manse' with a near 400 square foot city vista covered terrace recently underwent a significant renovation that transformed it from its former neo-traditional "dripping in crown moldings" space into a sleek pared down and graciously understated luxe residence.
While I love all manner of styles (of the 19 properties I've owned, they've ranged from a vintage brick and beam Button Factory loft, an 1880s shingle manse, to my current project - a fugly 1960s swell dwell duplex), what really captures my attention and makes my heart go thumpety-thump is when a residence is well-proportioned, thoughtfully-designed, and aesthetically balanced.
This high-style space is so exacting in its attention to detail, fitted with the finest of everything, and carefully executed to accommodate a museum-worthy collection of art, sculpture and furnishings.
And I gotta tell you. It's wonderfully understated perfection.
Here's some pics:
