27 Alcina Avenue Toronto

House of the week: 27 Alcina Avenue

27 Alcina Avenue is a two-bedroom country cottage currently listed for $1,600,000. It's not your average detached house in the prime Wychwood neighbourhood near St. Clair West, looking a little more rustic than the typical urban dwelling you'd expect in this area.

The first time on the market in 50 years, the early farm house was converted into an artist studio by longtime owner, sculptor Leonard Oesterle. You can find examples of his work edged throughout the space, from the eccentric front entrance to multiple three-dimensional carvings in the yard. The house flows like a work of art from the Luminato Festival.

The unique decor incorporates materials like wood walls, ceilings, and a glassed-in solarium overlooking the sculpted gardens. The authentic countryside kitchen makes you feel like you've travelled back in time, along with the rest of the homely open floor plan.

With several hidden gems in the neighbourhood and the popular Wychwood Barns around the corner, you might say this art studio house is (somewhat) priceless.

GOOD FOR

An artist, painter, poet, dreamer, creative thinker, the list goes on. The live/work studio is the ultimate space to imagine, relax with a coffee or discover your muse in the leafy gardens. A unique space for entertaining or turning the living room into a full-size yoga studio. Namaste.

MOVE ON IF

You need more than two bedrooms and dislike cedar. The inside of this country home looks like one giant sauna with wood paneling and exposed brick. You want that modern glass house? You might want to move on. It's better to preserve the eclectic home than to bulldoze its character and soul. But that's up to the new owners.
