The tour

The home is one of the largest on a dead-end street. 

The Victorian sits directly across the street from Ramsden Park.

The foyer has a star-patterned mosaic floor, and there’s a powder room hidden in the wall on the right. 

That's a powder room on the right, not a closet.

Here’s that powder room, with moody decor, completed as part of the 2022 renovation. 

The powder has moody vibes for days.

Moving into the open-concept space reveals the new walnut closet.

The fornt hall closet is walnut.

The open-concept living room has floor-to-ceiling windows and cathedral ceilings. Its fireplace is original, though it was converted from wood to gas a long time ago.

Cathedral ceilings and central fireplace define the living area.

Another angle of the space showcases more walnut millwork, which adds warmth to the contemporary decor. The floors are heated oak.

The floors here are heated.

The dining room is down the hall. Note the floating buffet and floor-to-ceiling windows.

More custom millwork in the dining room.

Next door is the kitchen, equipped with a quartz backsplash and counters. 

The counters and backsplash in the kitchen are quartz.

Even the Sub-Zero fridge is panelled in walnut.

Outside, the south-facing backyard gets tons of natural light and comes with a pergola-covered deck, an interlocking stone patio and manicured gardens.
