Everybody: Fix yourself an old fashioned and sit down. Lighting a cigarette is optional and dangerous but damn, you just may need to do that too.
Extraordinary Mid Century beauty by architect Gardiner Cowan in prestigious Lincoln Woods. The best of Toronto’s West end. Soaring Douglas fir beams, vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and four fireplaces over multiple split levels. An eat in kitchen overlooking a lush and private back yard. Next stop on this tour de force is the lower level family room which walks out onto a lower (!!) garden. More lushness. More beauty. More whiskey please.
Upstairs master suite has walk out to balcony with built-in planter boxes and view over landscaped front garden through the trees. Guys, you might actually SIT out there! It’s gorgeous. There’s also a nanny suite and a finished basement. It also has a steel roof and an above average home inspection just in case you were about to get practical for a second.
It’s not surprising this house is so charming, it probably has some sparkle left over from when former hockey hall-of-fame-r, former Maple Leaf-er, and Stanley Cup (<–!!) winner. Joe Primeau (who was also called “Gentleman Joe Primeau”) lived here. Look him up. He’s a big deal. Not that that matters, but hey, pretty cool.
Please don’t miss this. Open House this weekend from 2-4pm both days.
