House of the week: 16 Ripplewood Road

Ever wonder what $2 million could land you outside the bustle of dowtown Toronto'? This 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home situated just shy of Royal York and Eglinton is a beautifully designed, mid-century split-level home worthy of a Mad Men episode.

The simple yet elegant entrance sets the tone for the entire home. The stone pillars and wooden panels greet you into a vaulted entrance, with a large wooden door to welcome you inside. These design details are carried throughout the home, and the simple, unassuming black fireplaces (there's four of them) add to the effortless appeal of the decor.

The terracotta tiling throughout the main floor, wooden paneling in the family room, and carpeted stairs may have once have been covered up, but is a refreshing change from the ultra modern renovations we're seeing across the city. With tree views from every room and large emphasis on natural beauty, there's no denying the appeal of this mid-century design.

GOOD FOR

A homeowner looking to distance themselves from the frenzy of downtown (plus its prices) and nestle into nature. Location, lot and large bright windows are key here. This abode also comes with great character, which is perfect for those seeking something different from the typical modern renovations we often see in Toronto neighbourhoods.

MOVE ON IF

You're not keen on trading in a central location and convenience for a generous lot and mature trees. While transit is available, you're going to want a car to get around in this area.
