‘ YOU WANT TO SPEND TIME’ IN THIS NEW-BUILD IN THE BEACHES LISA VAN DE VEN

National Post (Latest Edition) - - POST HOMES -

“Clas­sic beach ar­chi­tec­ture with a mod­ern flare,” is how real es­tate ad­viser Sarah Amarshi de­scribes this new­build home in Toronto’s Beaches neigh­bour­hood. The three-storey, five-bed­room house — re­built by the prop­erty own­ers — fea­tures warm woods in­spired by the for­est views out­side the win­dows, along­side con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes in an open- con­cept space. An el­e­va­tor, home mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem and nanny suite cre­ate added func­tion­al­ity, while ter­races off the liv­ing spa­ces and mas­ter bed­room al­low res­i­dents to en­joy the for­est views out­side. “It would be ideal for a grow­ing fam­ily,” says Amarshi, sales­per­son for En­gel & Völk­ers. “It has that el­e­ment of re­claimed lux­ury. You go through the space and it is a lux­u­ri­ous prop­erty, but it’s more than that – you want to spend time there.” The 5,335-square-foot home is lo­cated at 192 Neville Park Blvd., Toronto and is sell­ing for $3,999,900.

1Flat-front white lac­quer cab­i­nets pro­vide a clean­lined, con­tem­po­rary back­drop to the kitchen, while a graphic quartz back­splash with a mar­ble look of­fers a dra­matic touch. Black ac­cents are in­tro­duced through sleek pen­dant light­ing above the is­land, break­ing up the oth­er­wise light space. “It’s sim­ple and el­e­gant,” Amarshi says.

2A white quartz coun­ter­top wa­ter­falls off both sides of the kitchen’s over­sized is­land for a lux­u­ri­ous look, while ad­di­tional cabi­netry be­low pro­vides ex­tra stor­age space. Mean­while, heav­ily grained wood brings in a touch of na­ture. “The colour­ing is sim­i­lar to the forestry out­side,” Amarshi says.

3Oak floor­ing is used through­out the house, again pulling in­spi­ra­tion from the for­est views out­side. “It comes down to pro­vid­ing that sense of lux­ury and warmth to the space,” Amarshi says. Neu­tral taupe-toned walls add to that sense of warmth, ty­ing to­gether the whites and woods.

4“As soon as you en­ter that’s the first thing you see,” Amarshi says of the liv­ing room’s gas fire­place, which is sur­rounded in the same mar­ble-look quartz used for the kitchen back­splash. “It flows. That’s what the de­sign­ers were try­ing to ac­com­plish and show­case,” she adds.
