As Canadian cities get older, their housing stock ages and becomes obsolete, creating new opportunities for redevelopment.
Such is the case for this contemporary masterpiece in Toronto's Roncesvalles Village. Located in a neighbourhood that evolved into the cultural hotspot for the Polish community last century, as the decades gave way and that population aged and their commercial activity declined, by the 1990s this neighbourhood began gentrifying into a new life cycle which offers the very best elements of a revitalized neighbourhood - a family-friendly community with urban undercurrents, with an ideal location, close to downtown and to lush green space.
Recently completed, this 3-level black brick and metal clad executive residence was custom-built to the exacting specifications and high standards of the current owners. Pretty much everything in this house is custom, including the well-crafted millwork, the oak plank herringbone floors, and stunning spa washrooms. Comprising almost 3000 square feet over three levels of pristine living space, this 4+2 bed 4.5 bath comfortably chic residence is best-suited to those who appreciate quality and attention to detail. We love the accordion lower level with radiant heated floors which contains nanny quarters + a self-contained 1 bed teen suite that can convert into a 2-bed 2-bath in-law suite with private street entrance. Without question, this is architecturally-elevated living.
