House of the week: 8 Harrison Road

From the outside this place looks more like a school or office building. The house is shaped like a Tetris piece and has that flat roof that the janitors would have to climb on to go get all the errant tennis balls.8 harrison road toronto

Inside, however, is a beautiful modern home. The entrance way has soaring ceilings and plenty of natural light. I like the industrial staircase and the fact that there’s a full on tree in the middle of the floor. I wonder if that comes with the house?

Move On If

You don’t want to shovel your roof in the winter. Flat roof homes and buildings are notorious for leaks, cracks and pooling water, so they require more maintenance than your regular slanted roof.  8 harrison road toronto
