House of the Week: $3.2M for a fully reno’d 1960s build in the Beaches
A chic, sunny beach house with contemporary finishes and a backyard oasis.
The home was built in 1960, and used to be two separate units. It underwent a major renovation in 2017, which was completed in June of this year.
Fans of herringbone, take note:
The room at the front of the house is currently set up as a home office. Those doors slide closed for (sort-of) privacy:
The office is next to the dining room…
… which shares space with the kitchen:
It’s outfitted with built-in Miele appliances:
There’s a cute little deck off the kitchen:
The family room has a gas fireplace and a whole lotta walnut:
Here’s one of the rooms on the second floor:
And another. This one has plenty of storage:
This is the biggest of the second-floor’s two washrooms:
Groovy laundry room, man:
The master bedroom is on the top floor:
It has its own coffee bar:
The master en suite is really something else:
Here it is again:
Unsurprisingly, the basement is finished:
As is the backyard:
Big selling point
For buyers who love entertaining, the carefully landscaped backyard has a limestone patio that can accommodate big dinner parties, and IPE fencing for privacy.
The eco driveway looks cool, but may not be for those who aren’t up for taking on extra lawn upkeep.
