An Art Collectors Sky Manse In Toronto For $4,750,000

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:

 

This bespoke suite has garnered some terrific press, including this Toronto Life Feature and this article in The Globe And Mail which tell more of the story!

 

Offered for sale at $4,750,000, contact Donna & Nick Thompson (1 416 441 2888) at Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd. Brokerage for more info.
