272 Avondale Avenue – An Award Winning Home in Westboro

 

Winner of the prestigious GOHBA Custom Home of the Year Award, this luxury residence was built to the highest standards by the internationally acclaimed Design/Build team at Art & Stone. Inside you will find an artful pairing of luxurious details using organic and natural materials. Every aspect of this home has been carefully considered, resulting in balance and harmony throughout.

A generous foyer welcomes you inside featuring beautifully textured Italian tiles on the floor and walls. A home office is smartly located off the entry featuring stunning 10′ custom powder coated steel & glass doors. Down the hall you will find an elegantly appointed mudroom with floor to ceiling cabinetry, and a powder room with a custom concrete counter, copper faucet, and a one-of-a-kind copper and glass light fixture handcrafted in Canada by Bocci.

The open concept living space is anchored by a 10’ Japanese inspired island with built-in dining, perfect for entertaining and family gatherings Omakase style. The kitchen’s features blend seamlessly creating a serene backdrop, while the exquisite custom cabinetry by Handwerk is perfectly organized so everything has a place. No detail has been overlooked; from the side-by-side integrated Fisher Paykel fridge & freezer, the Bertazzoni gas range, to the Caesarstone Quartz counters and backsplash with a luxurious suede finish.

European oak plank flooring throughout the main living space creates a seamless transition from one area to the next and the warmth from the Belgium Stûv wood stove can be enjoyed from all areas. Note the concealed wood storage behind the bookcase wall for easy access and an uncluttered look.

Ascend the solid oak staircase with 2″ thick risers guided by lovely mood lighting, to an inviting and purposeful loft area that doubles as a quiet space to read or watch TV. Upstairs are four generous bedrooms, all with 14’ ceilings with playful angles, a laundry room with custom cabinetry concealing excellent storage, and two stunning bathrooms. The main bathroom features a seamless glass shower wall, soaker tub, two sink areas, in-floor heating, a soaring custom mirror, and a dramatic light fixture controlled by touch.

At the end of the hallway the primary suite of your dreams awaits through solid wood floor-to-ceiling doors. Enjoy his and her closet areas, impeccable custom cabinetry, and a beautifully designed feature wall. You’ll feel a remarkable sense of calm upon entering the ensuite bathroom. Every detail has been considered such as the ledge that spans the entire length of the room, the perfect placement of the minimalist round teak faucet handles, the handcrafted copper faucets with a natural patina, the trio of designer lights, in-floor heating, and the scale and shape of the window. Absolute perfection.

The Scandinavian inspired exterior is simple yet sophisticated and absolutely unique in its design. A wall of windows across the back of the home invites the sunshine in and opens to a fully fenced yard with a massive zero maintenance Trex deck that is soft underfoot. The shed that was rebuilt in 2012 has a 60 amp panel and offers great storage. Alternatively, you could open up the side of the shed onto the deck and turn this space into a covered outdoor dining area or artists studio. The choice is yours.

The extra high 9’ ceilings on the lower level ensure a lovely sense of light and space not often found in a basement. A growing family will appreciate the well laid out family/media room and gym area on this level. Here you will also find a 5th bedroom, another full bathroom and excellent storage. Thinking ahead, this level was plumbed for a kitchen and the side entrance would lend itself well to an in-law or nanny suite if desired.
