House of the week: 30 Longwood Drive

This West Coast design-inspired house near York Mills and Leslie is architecturally stunning. I love the clean crisp lines and massive windows that flood the place with natural light.

A large family who will take full advantage of that epic backyard pool and playground. Despite its minimalist design this house just seems made for a family with loads of kids.

30 longwood drive torontoMove On If

You’re not a fan of West Coast design. It can come across a little boxy and boring to some. So, if you’re more of a fan of Victorian or Georgian style homes this place isn’t for you.
