The place

A four-bedroom custom house overlooking High Park, available furnished or unfurnished.

The history

This three-storey home was originally built in the 1950s. The current owner bought it three years ago and hired Graham Smith, of Altius Architecture Inc., to give it a contemporary overhaul. The revamp included a complete interior and exterior refresh, new skylights, heated driveways and floors, and a room just for the owner’s motorcycle collection. Now he’s moving to another neighbourhood and looking to lease the property. It’s also available for sale, for $5.5 million.
