The place

A 1950s sidesplit with a slanted roof, located near the Bridle Path.

The history

This house was designed by the architect Henry Fliess, who worked on many houses in Don Mills, and also the Sherway Gardens shopping centre. He lived in the house before passing it on to his son. The current owner bought the place last year and has kept the structure intact.

The living room has a wooden accent wall:

Major perks

The sloped roof gives the living area some impressive ceiling height. The agent says it gets as tall as 16 feet:

Possible deal breaker

The mid-century interior was trendy when the house was built, and the style still has many fans—but the house doesn’t have the sleekness of a new-build, so it may not suit everyone.
