There are homes that simply make me smile. In this instance, I can partially explain why: the terrific roofline, gentle breaks in the linear plane and playful positioning of the skylights. But the real joy of this house is just the overwhelming spirit in which it was designed and built – that simply makes me smile.
Recently completed, this distinctive family home is located south of Bloor near Prince Edward Drive.
Designed by acclaimed blackLAB architects, this inviting and distinctive home presents a generous floorplan intersected by a central stair and double-height volume. Carefully-considered windows and skylights introduce abundant light throughout the home, emphasizing an airy interior and expansive views across the neighbourhood.
The home’s very logical and gracious floorplan locates the oversized kitchen to the rear, with abundant counter and pantry space, as well as an informal eating / breakfast area. This space flows seamlessly onto the cedar deck beyond, thanks to a wall of sliding windows.
At the opposite side of the main floor is located a large living room and dining room, complimented by a gas fireplace and views of the home’s central stair. Windows are positioned in such as way as to maximize natural light, while still preserving privacy.
Above the living room is the home’s master bedroom, complete with walk in closet and a generous master ensuite. Here, again, light is introduced carefully and abundantly thanks to strategically-placed skylights.
At the opposite end of the upper level are the home’s 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, each equipped with a playful ‘loft’, and sharing the home’s main bathroom. Laundry has also, conveniently, been located on the upper level.
Downstairs is a family play room, as well as a complete lower level inlaw / guest suite for convenience and flexibility of use.
Occupying a large corner lot, in a quiet pocket of Sunnylea, this custom home is designed with restraint and care, executed with exceptional care to fine details, and a remarkable achievement of both space and style.
