Lovers of Scandinavian design - this one's for you!

If you've ever taken a stroll in the neighbourhood just east of Bathurst and Bloor, you'll undoubtedly have noticed this exceptionally unique property. With an exterior that's a combination of weathering western red cedar and anodized Aluminium panels, flanked by a white pine and a sequoia tree, this home evokes the feeling of a contemporary Scandinavian chalet and truly stands out among the traditional Victorian semis, original Annex homes and renovated modern glass houses around it.

So...you'll either love it or hate it!



Inside is the big reveal. While the Scandinavian design sensibilities carry through to the interior, they take on an altogether different approach. Clean, modern lines with a focus on form and a minimal aesthetic is the name of the game here.


  


A Carrara marble bench and a Valor radiant gas fireplace are the focal points in the living room. It also has a walkout to the deck and back yard, which features led exterior landscaping and deck lights, tall grasses, lavender and a tall birch tree.



The Bulthaup kitchen features Miele appliances, two 24" European fully-integrated fridge-freezer, Inspira integrated dishwasher, and a Talo suspension light designed by Neil Poulton for Artemide.


   


The house is a modern three bedroom that is anything but square with a pitched roof, soaring ceilings and an impressive staircase nestled into the front living space. Being the designer's own home, there's incredible attention to detail with expensive fixtures and high-quality finishes throughout.



The family room on the second level features soaring ceilings and a cloudlight mobile pendant by Molo.




Also on the second level is the master bedroom with custom built-in walnut wardrobes and hardwood floors. Its ensuite boasts an array of top-of-the-line features, including a custom monolithic Corian soaker tub with Axor Uno tub filler, custom dual slot sinks wall hung vanity, AXOR fixtures, floor heating mats, an led shower mood light and Talo wall mount vanity lights by Artemide.


  

  


The other two bedrooms in the home (one of which is currently set up as an office) also feature custom built-in walnut wardrobes and hardwood floors.



On the lower level there's a studio or workspace with a chalkboard wall, the perfect space to set up a paining studio, home office or another bedroom. 

  


The clever architectural design takes advantage of a small lot size (only 30 by 50 feet), with an integrated carport and small backyard. The carport is particularly distinguished, featuring a custom intricate laser cut steel design.



While Central Tech High School is situated directly across the street, the home does boast an incredible Walk Score of 98. Bloor Street between Bathurst and Spadina has almost everything in walking distance, especially if you like all-you-can-eat sushi and froyo. And while Honest Ed's is no longer there, you can expect significant retail revitalization to the west of Bathurst in the next half decade.


If you're in search of something truly unique to call home, this is the one for you!
