I’ve met hundreds – if not thousands – of buyers looking for raw space in a perfect location to convert into a spectacular home. What is much more rare, however, is to meet someone with the skill, insight, flair and courage to create a home as spectacular as this. It is quite simply, remarkable.
A full-floor residence in a boutique mixed use building, located at the very core of College Street.
This home affords almost 3,000 square feet of living space, meticulously planned and executed to maximize natural light throughout. Ideally suited for both gracious entertaining and quiet family living, the home’s floorpan cleverly divides the front ‘public’ space from the private bedrooms beyond. A year-round “winter garden” opens almost entirely to outside in summer months, thanks to walls of retractable windows, while remaining a warm and comfortable space throughout the the balance of the year with a fireplace and full heating.
The kitchen has been designed for those who love to cook, and includes an extensive butler’s pantry with an additional dishwasher, refrigeration and storage for either catering events or large parties. Thanks to an oversized floorpan, the dining room can accommodate extended family gatherings, and connects graciously with the living room for ideal open-concept living.
Adjacent to the great room is a generous study with built-in bookshelves, ideal as a home office, den or occasional guest bedroom. The main living space is also served by a glamorous powder room, discretely tucked away from the main living space.
Separated by discrete double doors is the home’s private living space, a series of carefully planned rooms that provide privacy and generous sizes. The master bedroom is the the rear, with ample built-in closets as well as an oversized walk-in that discretely connects to the home’s laundry room. The master suite includes a stunning ensuite bathroom, with large walk-in shower, sumptuous soaker tub and separate water closet.
This portion of the home also hosts the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, each of a comfortable size with large windows and closet. One bedroom provides a semi-ensuite to the home’s main bath, which is also accessible to the hall.
This home provides a virtually irreplaceable opportunity to live in the heart of the College Street neighbourhood, in a home of rare size, style and substance. Convenient to so many amenities, from restaurants and bars such as Raval, Giancarlo’s, Woodlot, Sotto Voce, and Taverniti, as well the the Royal Cinema, florists, green grocers, LCBO and naturally just minutes to the city’s core.
A unique urban home, presently available for sale.
