Located near Casa Loma, this luxury urban home is feng shui certified and comes complete with high-tech metal entrance gates.
“For the past 25 years, we have enjoyed how private and peaceful our home is, considering it’s prime urban location,” said homeowner Maurice Fiorio.
“Our open-concept home has been perfect for entertaining, whether we were planning a more intimate or larger-scale party. In the warmer months, we have spent a great deal of time in the backyard with its custom wooden bench, large patio with surrounding garden beds, privacy fencing, automated landscape lighting, a barbecue, fire pit and huge hot tub with built-in speakers and lighting,” said Fiorio.
Steps to parks and schools, the home is walking distance to Yonge St. shops, restaurants and businesses. Also nearby are the subway, Upper Canada College and Casa Loma. Yorkville dining and shopping is a short drive or commute.
“This contemporary home has been impressively designed to make an architectural statement, ideal for entertaining — from the luxury chef’s kitchen to the fully finished lower level with a walkout, and almost 10-foot ceilings,” said listing agent Jonathan Schwarz.
“The South Hill neighbourhood has a rich history that dates back to 1793. Its natural beauty made it an instant favourite with wealthy Toronto landowners … Today, South Hill still remains an affluent residential downtown Toronto area, where many of the streets are lined with mature trees,” added Schwarz.
Remote-operated double metal gates open to the interlocking brick front drive. The home has a stucco exterior, lots of windows — several arched — and a built-in garage. Steps up lead to the metal front door, bordered with frosted glass panels.
The front foyer has a hardwood floor and powder-coated metal railing overlooking the lower level.
Located next to the kitchen, the dining room features a hardwood floor and large picture window.
The open-concept living room has a hardwood floor, large contemporary light fixture and a flush, wall-mounted gas fireplace. It is open to the family room which has a hardwood floor and a wall of windows.
Highlights of the spacious kitchen include a hardwood floor, a large island with a double sink, cabinetry and four-seater breakfast bar, ceiling-mounted speakers, granite counters and backsplash, a large window, and built-in stainless steel appliances that include a pull-out espresso bar.
