As you walk into the home the unique design details are apparent from the white entry tiles that replicate crinkled paper to the stylish yet functional. There is a custom built-ins for storage of coats, shoes and accessories made of Sapele, an exotic African hardwood. Throughout the home quality wide plank oak engineered hardwood floors were installed to replicate the lime wash floor of the period this home was originally built (1870s).
The living room at the front of the home has the original ceramic tiled fireplace providing the focal point of the room. The separate dining room offers room for a large table for entertaining. The access to the basement for additional storage is just off the dining room.
The main floor washroom has an orignial to the 1870s freestanding clawed bathtub that provides a lovely juxtaposition to the contemporary bathroom fixtures chosen in the renovation process.
The highlight of the main floor has to be the sun filled gourmet kitchen. The back of the house at the kitchen was removed to allow the installation of a custom Bauhaus floor to ceiling swinging window and door system also made from Sapele. This Bauhaus feature spans the entire back of the house and is designed to open and create a wonderful connection to the outdoor space on those lovely summer days. A generous size chef’s island provides plenty of seating for guests to visit while the food is prepared. The Super White quartzite counters blend beautifully with the architectural designed white cabinetry. The Sapele details continue in the kitchen with shelving details and the laundry surround that adds some warmth and contrast to the white cabinetry. The washer and dryer are cleverly tucked in the corner of the kitchen under the counters.

The staircase creates a perfect split plan upstairs for the 2 Bedrooms on the second floor.
The Master bedroom is South Facing with two windows providing great light, a generous sized master closet with stylish built ins and a modern tiled en-suite bathroom with shower in a glass enclosure and contemporary vanity and fixtures. Both closet and washroom have barn door entry for space efficiency and style.
The Second Bedroom overlooks the back garden and offers a wonderful view of the corrugated steel flat roof below that was part of the main floor extension. There is an abundance of light and the bedroom functions as a child’s bedroom, office space or a guest suite as required.
Please know this home was fully renovated so not only are the finishes exquisite but also the mechanics, electrical and structural were brought to modern day standards. The entire home has been waterproofed and the party wall between the two semis has been structurally reinforced and insulated to provide both sound and fireproofing. The basement though not finished is dry and has been mold and waterproofed.

The rear courtyard garden….
The clutter free and easy care rear courtyard garden has a patio reclaimed from marble slabs obtained during the restoration of First Canadian Place. It is the perfect retreat on those lovely summer nights as you entertain. Who would have thought a hint of Bay Street would find it place in Trinity Bellwoods!
This space efficient lane way home certainly checks a lot of boxes.
