“I have the privilege of selling some exceptional homes. It is rare, however, to find such an exquisite and breath-taking property, that has been so meticulously rebuilt. A gem.”—Paul

This gracious Kingsway home has been thoroughly rebuilt, and re-imagined as a modern residence of unequalled quality, fully in keeping with the prevailing style of the neighbourhood.
From the street, the home presents a stately facade which has been updated with Indiana Limestone, a solid Mahogany door and european landscape lighting. The linear, formal gardens flank a circular drive – respectfully celebrating the tradition of the residence while giving the first hints of what is to be found inside.
The home has been completely rebuilt, undergoing a renovation “back to the bricks” which introduced new electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems, as well as new cedar roof, windows and a brand new interior plan. The renovations have resulted in the most exquisitely detailed interior, a jewel-like residence that presents a warm and comfortable modernity. Oiled wenge floors throughout, and a floating wood and custom glass staircase that rises through the centre of the residence. Extensive use of natural stones, found on the wood burning fireplace surrounds and hearths, to the radiantly heated bathrooms, to large quartz slabs used in the kitchen.
Carefully curated throughout, with the absolute finest of materials and accessories. The large eat-in kitchen, for example, is manufactured by Valcucine and features top-tier appliances including a fully integrated Sub Zero fridge, Gaggenau gas cooktop, Dornbracht faucet and crisp back-painted glass backslashes. Each of the home’s bathrooms present the finest of materials, complimented by furnishings and fixtures by Boffi, Vola and Wetstyle. This remarkable attention to the finest details extends even into the laundry, where a side-by-side Miele washer and dryer set is set beneath a custom Corian work surface.
The extension of the interior living space into the rear yard is accomplished with an equal level of precision and flair. A vast outdoor space has been created entirely in Douglas fir, and presents a number of outdoor rooms ideal for urban living and superb entertaining. There’s a dining area, beneath the beautifully executed pergola, and a large lounging area with more direct sunlight and a linear outdoor fireplace for cooler evenings. Raised from the planted gardens that surround it, this spectacular outdoor structure honours the home’s magnificent mature tree that provides mottled sunlight throughout the day.
