The district of Yorkville fuses modern glamour with its artistic, hippie roots. The result? A neighborhood pulsing with social activity and an unbreakable sense of community. Amid this enticing hamlet stands a historic University of Toronto fraternity house that has been delicately transformed into a trio of chic townhomes exuding a charm that enhances the Yorkville vibe even further.
The restorative and adaptive composition, by renowned architect and interior designer Dee Dee Taylor Hannah, has emerged as a breathtaking addition to the area.
“Each unit has a completely different feel,” Taylor Hannah said. “They’re all half old Victorian mansion and half contemporary intervention.”
The elegant main floor unit offers 3 bedrooms and 3 baths within its approximately 3,000 square feet, as well as lavish terrace space illuminated by the twinkling of the cityscape. Its two secondary bedrooms, sharing one large bathroom suite, both present peaceful views onto the private terrace and beyond.
This exceptional floorplan places the chef’s dream kitchen — resplendent with state-of-the-art smart Gaggenau appliances — and casual dining area at the center of the home and builds outward. High ceilings, handsome finishes and singular architectural details are complemented with an indulgence of rich mahoganies, soft greys, cool marbles and soothing porcelains.
You’ll want to lounge the day away in your winsome owner’s suite, suffused with natural light and finished with a true decorator’s eye. The full-wall, glass-enclosed shower will surround you with warmth and comfort, relaxing the day’s stresses away.
The exquisite wrap-around primary terrace, designed by Toronto-based landscape architect Ron Hollbrook, boasts heated floors and a full outdoor kitchen. A pair of personal underground parking spaces — extremely rare and desirable — add another level of privacy and security.
The design of this home invites easy entertaining of friends and family alike.
