I think it could be possible to think of this house in stylistic terms only – an ode to retro-chic living, most recently popularized by a wildly popular television series… But when you couple a home of this vintage with an exceptional recent architectural intervention, what you end up with is style AND substance : an immensely livable home, with striking volumes, a gracious floorplan, superb natural light and a style frankly, all its own.
Welcome to 835 Royal York Road, Toronto.
A timeless classic of midcentruty architecture, skillfully and stylishly updated and restored. A spacious interior plan, highlighted by a gracious shed roof, and abundant south-facing windows over the ravine and creek below.

Impeccably renovated, this home provides ample space for both daily family living and gracious entertaining. Updated throughout, the oversize’d chef’s kitchen presents custom walnut cabinetry and an oversized island perfect for gatherings. Top tier appliances are paired with abundant counter and storage space, gently separated from the home’s main living space by an original wood burning fireplace.
