House of the week: 41 Great Oak Drive

This used to be my piano teacher’s house. Every Thursday I would walk over and spend an hour (or what felt like an hour) muddling my way through scales and various pieces I never actually practiced. 41 great oak drive torontoSince those days, this house near Islington Golf Club in Etobicoke has undergone a dramatic renovation. The contemporary wood, glass and industrial touches combined with the abundance of natural light create a stunning home.

A family who loves hosting large gatherings. With such a large living room and backyard, it would be a shame not to pack this place to the rafters for a big shindig every once in a while.
