As the purveyor of houseporn.ca - and a realtor specializing in Toronto's 'Innovative Space' marketplace for 26 years - I know first hand how challenging it is to find domestic design which is elevated beyond convention and big box store fixtures and finishes. I also understand how rare it is to find homes which marry comfort, sustainable practices + design, and on-trend styling. Which is why I love the aesthetic of this reinvented dwelling, which offers the compelling fusion of crisp white walls, warm wood neutrals and graphic black accents. This modern residence - located in Toronto's Beach Neighbourhood - incorporates classic timeless materials into a new domestic language of contemporary comfort.
Designed by German architect Felix Leicher - from baukultur/ca - a boutique development company with the mandate to create ambitious and unique spaces of the highest architectural standards, the firm also subscribes to sustainable building materials and practices. This includes the use of energy-saving fixtures, comfort systems, plumbing, lighting and design. After all, sustainable housing and design not only improves a home owner’s life in terms of cost savings, sustainable materials tend to be more durable, which means lower maintenance and greater longevity. Green features in this modern residence include electrically operable skylights to naturally vent for fresh air flow, a new lead free water service, low water use faucets, dual flush toilets, energy efficient & energy star rated appliances, argon-gas low e-coated windows, extra insulation, an air exchange system with heat recovery, hot water 'on demand', a white metal roof to minimize summer heat intake, a smart thermostat with temperature sensors in all principal rooms, smart lighting control with dimmer functions to all lights & “all off“ switches, a smart home energy monitor, sustainable lumber and even the recycling of construction debris.
The four levels of carefully crafted living spaces are thoughtful, well-proportioned, and nothing short of sumptuous. Perfect for modern purists, the main level is a series of articulated spaces which flow from one function to another, including a sun-drenched family room. The second level has three bedrooms and two baths, with an optional master suite for those with young children, while the third level is an aerie master suite tucked under vaulted ceilings. Boasting six skylights, a sitting and sleeping zone that connect to a roof terrace, a dreamy washroom and a dressing room, this treetop sanctuary is full-on luxe. Have a nanny or a moody teen? The lower level with separate entrance has a media room with kitchenette, fifth bedroom, fifth washroom and ample storage.
This modern dwell oozes curb appeal, with a facade that marries wood and metal siding and a chic front door. And the generous rear garden boasts new fencing, an arbour and tiered deck and two car parking with an electronic sliding gate for added security. I love the custom copper cladding on the family room as well as the maintenance-free white metal panel façades and rain screen siding made from thermal modified wood. A sustainable marvel that marries pragmatism with sublime design elements, this architectural masterpiece - boasting the ideal trifecta of a Triple AAA location, a well-proportioned space plan, exemplary finishes and a 2 year General Contractor warranty - is going to be a spectacular Home for one fortunate buyer!
