80 North Drive Toronto

House of the week: 80 North Drive

Well if I win the lottery I know which house I’m going to buy! This Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home is a stunner.  Toronto architect Blake Millar designed it as an homage to Wright's Fallingwater.80 North Drive Toronto

Nestled into the top of a ravine, this place was this site's house of the week back in 2016. Since then, it’s gone through a couple of hands and gotten some much-needed repairs and updates. Although, it probably needs a few more.

80 North Drive TorontoThe listing says that the house comes with permits to renovate the pool, which makes me think that the pool needs renovation. There’s also plans for an addition and "interior revamp," including a basketball court, Gaban Yoku (a Japanese hot stone spa) and a second master bedroom.

80 North Drive TorontoThe interior of the house is modern, even for being built in 1973. It has an almost Japanese-garden-like vibe to it. With the floor-to-ceiling glass walls that offer scenic outdoor views at almost every corner, outdoor and indoor worlds blend seamlessly.  80 North Drive TorontoThe house is bathed in natural sunlight, spacious and open. And despite all the glass walls, the house is very private.  

80 North Drive TorontoThe open concept kitchen with English yew cabinetry is beautiful and overlooks the backyard, which has a pool.

80 North Drive TorontoThe sunken living room with the huge black fireplace is cozy, despite its minimalist design.

80 North Drive TorontoThe house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. It also has three decks, a sauna, fitness studio and a heated garage.80 North Drive Toronto

Nature lovers. The house has a huge lot with lush tree-lined views at almost every turn thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. Plus, there’s an outdoor courtyard in the centre of the home.80 North Drive Toronto

Move On If

You’re not prepared to do an “interior revamp” after spending over $5 million on house. With all these plans and permits that come with the house, it seems it’s due for a serious update and for that kind of asking price, the only kind of renovations you’d think would be necessary might be some new paint.80 North Drive Toronto
