3 Purling Pl Toronto

This $9 million Toronto mansion was designed by a renowned local architect

This home, located in the presitgious Windfields neighbourhood near the Bridle Path, might look like it was built only a few years ago thanks to its sleek modern design, but it turns out 3 Puling Pl. was way ahead of its time.

"It was built 18 or 20 years ago for the current owners," explained realtor Cheryl Graff. 

This was one of the first residential homes architect firm Hariri Pontarini designed in this area.3 Purling Pl Toronto

The foyer with the Wiarton limestone floors. 

Since then Pontarini has gone on to design buildings such as the Shangri-La Hotel, One Bloor and many other notable Toronto landmarks.

"The design of this home - if you look at the back of it - it's similar to Two St. Thomas. It's the same as this house. You'd think you're at the back of the home," Graff told blogTO.

To appreciate how foreward thinking the owners were, Two St. Thomas was only completed in 2018.

But the uniqueness doesn't just stop with the exterior, although the gardens are beautifully landscaped.

The open concept main floor with a walk-out to the back patio and soaring ceilings.

"The clerestory  windows are very unique as it allows all the natural light in," said Graff. "The day we went to list the house it was a dull day and they had no lights on and it was bright as could be."

The kitchen is very mid-century modern with sleek minimalist cabinets and integrated appliances. 

The open concept layout also makes the home great for entertaining, as does the addition of the prep area off the kitchen and the high-grade electrical in the garage, which Graff told blogTO has been used frequently by caterers.
