House of the week: 91 Riverview Gardens

This house was a total labour of love, and it shows. Owned by an arts and entertainment reporter and a stonemason, the couple built the place from the ground up over a period of four years. 91 riverview gardens torontoIt’s a magnificently modern home with a New York-townhouse-meets-Scandanvian simplicity feel to it. The realtor says French but I’m not sure that totally fits.

Good For

Proximity to nature. You’re only a block away from all the paths and hiking along Humber River and High Park is a short walk away as well.91 riverview gardens toronto

Move On If

You’re not a fan of stairs. There’s stairs leading up to the house and the home spans three storeys, so for those who don’t feel like a daily stairmaster workout, I suggest a bungalow.  91 riverview gardens toronto
