Steps away from High Park and Bloor West Village, this modern home design carefully balances family living with city living. The open-concept floor plan — including a home office, a mudroom, and plenty of recreation space — is ideal for meeting the needs of a young family. Meanwhile, large glass windows are carefully positioned to maintain privacy in the busy surrounding neighbourhood. The covered rear porch is great for outdoor entertaining, but also works in tandem with the enclosed backyard to offer a tranquil, intimate space when desired. While the home’s modern style might initially seem contrary to the style of its older, established neighbourhood, a thoughtful, integration-oriented design including local natural materials ends up beautifully complementing the neighbouring homes.
