Dream Homes: Midtown modern romance

A look at two contemporary homes with surprises in store.


Published:

OPEN CONCEPT IN LAWRENCE PARK
The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom mansion at 70 Blyth Hill Rd. is a modern-day showpiece of glass, steel and concrete. The innovative design offers more than 10,000 square feet of living space, with floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights and panoramic views of the Sherwood Park ravine. The concrete spiral staircase is a unique and bold addition to the home. The principal rooms are airy with plenty of wall space to display whatever works of art strike your fancy. A glass staircase connects all three levels in an open concept atrium with the kitchen overlooking another sitting area below. Other selling features include an in-ground infinity pool and a 1,500-bottle wine cellar. The property is listed for $7.995 million with Royal LePage J & D Division, Brokerage.

VS.


REFURBISHED IN ROSEDALE

The home at 229 Douglas Dr. may look like the kind of house you’d expect to see in Rosedale, but hidden inside the Georgian exterior is a Scandinavian-inspired space that is shiny and new. The heritage home was built in the early 1900s, and the entire interior was recently renovated for minimalist contemporary living. The main floor is open and bright, connecting the living and dining area with a gourmet kitchen and cosy breakfast nook with south-facing windows overlooking the backyard. The house has four bedrooms and five bathrooms with 5,420 square feet of space. Other selling features include heated floors and tons of custom cabinetry for storage. It is on the market for $5.495 million with Chesnut Park Real Estate Limited, Brokerage.
