Delicately balancing tradition and modernity, Brooklyn Residence sits comfortably on an quiet residential street in Leslieville, fitting in with the established character while also creating modern and comfortable spaces within. Twin dormers facing the street sit alongside the original peaked gable with small window. Inside, tradition and modern meet with clean lines, spacious kitchen, open steel and glass staircase, and a sunken great room with high ceilings. The great room combines dining and living, focussing on a huge, steel-clad fireplace. Expansive doors open up the room to the back yard, exquisitely landscaped with ponds, pergolas, and an outdoor firepit for summer marshmallow roasts and cozy autumn nights.
Upstairs a generous principal suite faces the back yard, with private reading room and ensuite bathroom with a free-standing tub for meditation and relaxation.
