The design

This former show-home, nestled in the heart of Altadore, has an elegant design inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. From natural stone wall features, spacious windows and a backyard courtyard, the influence of natural materials and blended indoor and outdoor spaces is featured strongly throughout the home.


What to love

This spacious yet homey estate features over 5,000 square feet of light-flooded living space, from an open floor plan with soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows to a fully finished basement. It has a 700+ bottle, temperature-controlled wine cellar on the main floor for any wine connoisseurs. Families will enjoy the ensuite kids’ bedrooms upstairs and fully equipped home theatre in the basement, complete with a full gym, extra bedroom and bathroom, and extra flex space to add more.
