1 Roof Garden Lane

House of the week: 1 Roof Garden Lane

You'd never know that this $6.5 million warehouse-style house was located a stone's throw away from Bloor and Dovercourt, hidden as it is in an unremarkable laneway behind a dull grey facade. Once inside, however, you're confronted with a space that looks more like a contemporary art gallery than a living space.

That will surely divide people's opinions on 1 Roof Garden Lane. Some will think of it as a stunning open concept space, while others will deem it cold and sparse. In any case, the home is certainly intriguing, highlighted by the industrial aesthetic and the way in which the second floor wraps around the perimeter of the space.

This a house made for art and design lovers, and any buyer will need to put a lot of valuable items into to make it function the way that it's been designed. The idea isn't to cram things in, but to showcase each one given the sheer amount of space on offer. Given this focus and the lack of bedrooms, it's not exactly what you'd call family friendly.

MOVE ON IF

You want a conventional home. This isn't that. There's little by way of partitioned rooms, no yard, and walking from one end to the other of the ground floor is a mini-workout.
