The place

A 3,200-square-foot home with Scandinavian minimalist design. This three-storey house has seven-bedrooms, five-bathrooms and an 850-square-foot lower-level suite.

The history

The home was built in 1906. After the sellers bought the place, in 2018, they carried out a thorough renovation. They reinforced the foundation, redesigned the interior and touched up the original double-brick facade.

The tour

The foyer has floor-to-ceiling closets:
