I figure the hardest part about working at the Aston Martin factory is you drive home in, well, not likely an Aston Martin. Parallel that to my chosen profession, and let’s just say THIS is pretty much the Aston Martin of my dreams…
The opportunity to build a custom, modern residence on a prime lot in South Hill.
This gracious lot of 50′ X 163′ sits high above Poplar Plains, backing onto the tranquil ‘mews’ of Edmond Gate. Well treed and elevated, it affords terrific privacy and lush surroundings, just moments to the city centre, top schools, parks, ravines, Bloor Street and transit.
Sold as a building lot, the opportunity exists to have a custom modern home by award-winning gh3 Architects, constructed by Mazenga Building Group. Together, this team brings talent and the highest level of craftsmanship to the buyer, affording a rare opportunity to have constructed one of the finest modern residences in the city.
Unique for its tranquil location in the city, the home is an elegant statement expressed in modern form. The masonry exterior reflects the neighbourhood’s heritage, while proud volumes and elegant window details celebrate modern sensibility. The main level of the home features sweeping expanses of glass, to introduce exceptional natural light throughout. Coupled with the carefully-situated light wells and skylights, this home will provide superb vistas and an exciting dance of sunlight across its interior volume.
The home is accessed from Poplar Plains, with a forecourt and 2 car enclosed garage. The lower level of the home features a home theatre/games room, wine cellar, laundry/storage, and large guest/nanny suite.
The main level is inspired by large-scale entertaining, with an elegant floorplan. At the front of the home is the dining pavilion, an oversized room set in amongst the trees, ideally situated to take advantage of warm westerly sunsets. The balance of the home’s public spaces – kitchen, family room, living room and breakfast area – pivot around a stunningly detailed outdoor space accented by the most modern of in-ground pools.
The kitchen is perfectly situated as the hub of the home, with a massive island destined to be the meeting place for family and friends. Always with a view towards the rear yard, the home embraces a flow between interior and exterior spaces that enhances both natural light, and the over-all sense of connection to the outdoors.
Upstairs, 4 bedrooms each of remarkable size, including a master suite affording total privacy. This serene space is an escape at the rear of the home, up amongst the trees yet with ample views out towards the courtyard pool. It features abundant closet space, and a sleek, calming bathroom of remarkable proportions.
This turn-key building opportunity is ideally-suited to the urban buyer seeking a distinctive and finely-crafted modern home, executed by skilled and highly-regarded builders.
