80 North Drive Toronto

House of the week: 80 North Drive

If I had $3.7 million laying around, I'd be tempted to buy this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired property at 80 North Drive. Located at Royal York and Eglinton in the Edenbridge-Humber Valley neighbourhood, the split-level house is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass, overlooking an outdoor courtyard with a ravine, swimming pool and wrap-around landscaped gardens.

Built in 1973 by Blake Millar, the architect who designed a residence at Upper Canada College, the impressive interior is modern but timeless, boasting four bedrooms and bathrooms at almost 7,000 square feet.

With a translucent back, the house is seriously bathed in sunlight, blends indoor and outdoor space, and yet remains extremely private, even with three custom decks.

Almost every room offers a scenic outdoor view. The open concept kitchen overlooks the pool, the office highlights a picturesque garden view, and the master retreat is enclosed in one giant glass cube. There's parking for six, a heated garage, and a fitness studio and sauna.

Frank Lloyd Wright fans. According to the realtor, the unique property is inspired by the acclaimed architect's iconic Fallingwater House, and also Millar's first attempt at a cantilevered structure in Toronto.

MOVE ON IF

The listing price is out of your league. The famed property was up for sale in 2011 for $3,295,000, just below the current asking. Fingers crossed you'll win big on the next Roll up the Rim.
