Paying homage to its historic streetscape, don't let the ornate trim and gothic arched windows deceive you. Solid bones and an innovative architectural hand yield new construction and design that honours this home's historic roots without sacrificing 21st century comforts. This residential multi unit project was designed by baugrun design build and mbarchitecte of Montreal build and built by Aljibe Corporation, a local bespoke carpentry and construction firm. Their combined efforts underscore the transformative power of a home when it's connected to the environment through time-honoured traditions. Take for example, the original foundation which was dug out and underpinned to ensure sweeping windows and high ceilings in the garden floor unit. Let nature and light in. Or the locally-sourced reclaimed wood flooring in every unit which was denailed, milled and oiled on-site for a rich patina finish. While eye-catching feats of architecture like two storey fenestration and a splendid cupola ceiling offer up a major wow factor, don't miss thoughtful details like hand-picked and laid mosaic tile, and locally sourced wrought iron finishes custom MQ Windows throughout mimic original Victorian charisma, while fixtures from names like Fortuny and Kichler illuminate every space when the sun sets. Hardware throughout is Hafele - highest standards for the smallest of details. Five star kitchen and laundry appliances guarantee optimal performance in every unit - daily tasks never felt so pleasant. What you can't see is equally as impressive; radiant heat flooring features in the garden and main level units. Environment-first methods like soy based insulation foam, low voc paint, and reclaimed materials throughout are sustainably chic. A truly exceptional feature are the masonry heater fireplaces found in the first two storeys. These were hand built by Norbert Senf of Masonry Stove Builders, Shawville Quebec who is renowned in his field. This eco-friendly alternative system can heat the first two levels in the event of an emergency. Renewable, bespoke, old world traditions look so good in the here and now. Take a closer look at each unit. Despite claiming their own individual style rooted in a blend of Moorish, Provençale and Tuscan spirit, each unit celebrates space and light, and offers bespoke, handcrafted features. Starting at the garden level, high ceilings and large windows yield a bright and inviting home. Open concept design offers a sense of ease and flow through living and dining areas. Patio doors extend the space to the shared exterior garden. Exposed foundation stone yields cool design tension with delicate original transoms atop doorways. Two bedrooms are bright, spacious, and thoughtfully separated - all occupants are satisfied. In the primary bedroom, a four piece ensuite features arch-topped niches for a spa-like feel. The main bathroom is clad in Spanish imported tile - a beautiful effect for the walk-in shower and to impress guests. In the kitchen, reclaimed limestone has been fashioned into an oversized sink, and abundant storage and workspace are a chef's dream. A stunning cupola and two storey windows draw you into the main floor unit - marvel at how inviting and warm such a grand space is. Elegant soirees, sophisticated dinner parties, or lounging at home - every scenario feels so right. Whip up culinary delights in the state of the art kitchen complete with an Aga stove. Two additional rooms offer flexibility as home office and one bedroom or two bedrooms in this truly exceptional unit. Even the bathroom features tell-tale signs of love and attention - a hand-made bathtub feels like pure artistry. Two levels make up the third unit where Italian contemporary style permeates every corner. Carrara marble in all three bathrooms, a spacious kitchen with a cool cantilevered counter, and a balcony in the primary bedroom produce a dolce vita sensibility. Forward thinking design and plans yield a green roof if desired. As is the theme, beautiful natural light is celebrated via sweeping windows. Open social zones strike a perfect balance with independent spaces like a home office or sitting room with bay windows and four bedrooms that feature loft ceilings. Discover a home rich in character, where every corner and feature has a story and connection to the environment. Smart design, impeccable craftsmanship in an historic neighbourhood that is only minutes to the city centre, walking-close to schools and the social delights of Beechwood Village. Some things aren't meant to be seen - they're meant to be felt.
