The place

A newly built six-bedroom home that’s equal parts modern and rustic.

The history

In 2016, the owner demolished the run-of-the-mill one-and-a-half-storey house that used to occupy this lot and built a new one in its place.

The entrance has a unique layout:

Here’s the kitchen and dining room:

There’s a gas fireplace in the living room:

There are four bedrooms at the top of these oak stairs, plus more seating space to the right:

Here’s the pseudo ground floor. There’s also an office and a balcony up here:

Here’s the master bedroom. There are custom barn doors throughout the house:

The ensuite has a giant soaker tub and another gas fireplace:

Plus a massive shower:

Here’s another bedroom:

There’s a huge stone deck and some green space out back:

The basement is set up as a potential separate apartment. It even has heated floors: 

Big selling point

The open-concept main floor—with a combined kitchen, dining and living space—has funky custom light fixtures, high ceilings and luxury finishes. It’s perfect for hosting parties or for families who like spending time together.

Possible deal-breaker

This place has a lot of stairs, so older couples or anyone who’d rather save the elliptical workout for the gym should look elsewhere.
