Where it is
1212 Montreal Ave. S.W.
Built in 1983, this home features a mix of modern, antique and vintage elements that create a timeless appearance. The use of natural accents like wood trim, stone-clad fireplaces and whimsical, craftsman-style moulding in the kitchen sets the traditional feel. Antique-style furniture, touches of wallpaper and the dark, striking dining room offer a contrasting historic touch with modern appeal. The rest of the home boasts bright, neutral colour schemes and sleek modern materials like quartzite counters, designer lighting and window coverings.
