We shared the MLS listing on this project a few months ago when it was listed for sale. Selling for a record 1.6 million in the Queen West, Trinity Bellwoods area this home set a new bar for the neighbourhood.
When we began working with Matuu Building Specialists on this project, it was fully gutted, with only the original brick exterior maintained. The home was rebuilt, starting with a new basement walk-out, lowering and underpinning, with now full basement apartment, and wine cellar. The front facade was redone, windows replaced, and the traditional front porch was removed and modernized with a full width Ipe stair and canopy.
The main floor rear elevation was removed, and a full width accordion door was installed allowing the family room to be 100% open to the backyard. The second floor was replanned and the stair placement reconfigured to optimise the space, allowing for 3 full bedrooms, a family washroom, laundry room, and open office which leads to a new juliet balcony. On the third floor we popped-up the roof line and extended allowing the addition of a spa washroom, and walkout to new roof deck, as well as sizeable master suite.
Finishing features, rift-cut white oak floors, recessed baseboards, and open-tread floating stairs from main to second floor.
