Architectural Excellence Meets High-Tech LivingSend This Listing To A Friend
Lovingly constructed in 2016, this custom-built masterpiece stands as a testament to thoughtful design and meticulous craftsmanship. To say this house was thoughtfully designed would be an understatement. This is a quality of workmanship, materials, carefully-planned design touches and attention to detail that can only come when the builder…was building the home for his own daughter. So when we say “lovingly designed and built”…we mean it.
As you can imagine, no expense or effort was spared at 270 Indian Grove. From the moment you step inside, you’ll be immersed in a world of luxurious features, high-tech conveniences, and clever design touches that elevate the concept of urban living.
The heart of this home is undoubtedly the kitchen, a culinary paradise where no expense has been spared. A large island, top-of-the-line Thermador appliances, including a double wall oven, professional-grade gas range & hood, integrated dishwasher and two large fridges–a spacious fridge/freezer and a second “drinks” fridge–make this a chef’s dream. As you prepare your culinary masterpieces, effortlessly transition to the rear deck through a giant sliding wall of glass, connecting indoor and outdoor living under the cantilever with grace and ease.
Imagine sipping your favourite beverage while watching the sun dip below the horizon from your own private oasis. The third-floor primary bedroom features a private, west facing deck with a wall of windows that provide breathtaking, unobstructed views of the surrounding neighbourhood–the ideal spot to unwind and enjoy the greenspace.
Added to the walls of glass are three skylights, ensuring the home is bathed in natural light. Glass staircase surrounds add an elegant touch, creating a sense of openness and connectivity throughout the levels.
The primary bathroom is a true rock star of design. A skylight fills the space with natural light, while the floating tub is an exquisite centrepiece and the threshold-free shower with frameless glass enclosure is plumbed for an oversized rain shower. Floating toilets with hidden tanks and heated bathroom floors on the second and third floors complete the spa-like experience.
This isn’t just a home; it’s a high-tech marvel. An integrated multi-room app-controlled speaker system fills each floor and both outdoor decks with your favourite tunes. Smart lighting throughout the home enhances your comfort and convenience. A Wi-Fi “shower” unit on the third-floor ceiling ensures seamless internet coverage in every room. The Nest thermostat and Ring doorbell provide security and energy efficiency. A monitored security system with multiple cameras and both acoustic & shock sensors offers peace of mind. Ports with Ethernet cabling on all floors above grade keep you connected, and there’s even a Velux remote-controlled, and programmable skylight.
But this home is not just smart; it’s also smartly designed. Dozens of thoughtful touches enhance your daily life, from a motorized TV elevator in the kitchen to hidden storage throughout the home. Sleek, soft-close cabinets and integrated appliances create an uncluttered, minimalist aesthetic. The family room features a TV/fireplace surround with built-in shelving and hidden wiring conduits. European tilt-and-turn windows are both functional and stylish, while hidden curtain tracks maintain the clean lines and uncluttered aesthetic. Finally, the spectacular cantilevered rear design is both visually striking and practical, covering the back deck and maximizing second-floor family room space.
You’ll even appreciate the mechanical conveniences of this home, including an HRV system, central vacuum, heated bathroom floors, and a heated basement floor for those chilly Canadian winters. Spray foam and top-notch construction make it airtight and incredibly energy-efficient.
On the third floor you’ll find the generous master bedroom retreat. This area boasts a spacious walk-in closet, and the modern bath includes a glass shower with a rain head. Extra-large ensuite laundry and storage closets add to the convenience. And, on the 2nd floor you have two additional spacious and bright bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom. Whether you need space for your growing family, or a home office, there’s so much room here to enjoy.
For those looking to offset their mortgage, a beautiful tenanted one-bedroom, separate entrance apartment on the lower level awaits. With high 8.5-foot ceilings and large windows, this space is not your typical basement apartment. The open concept floor plan features heated laminate floors, a gourmet kitchen with stone counters, and stainless steel appliances. The excellent tenant is on a month-to-month lease and would like to stay; as it is directly connected to the rest of the home, the space would also make a perfect teenager hangout, in-law space or nanny suite.
The creators of this home spared no expense in engaging top designers for its realization. Patrick Fejer, CEO of B+H Architects led the way with house design motifs and the exterior house shell design. InStudio, helmed by Heidi and Guy Painchaud, handled interior design projects, drawings, and layout, creating smart spaces and innovative storage solutions. Wanda Ely Architects, under the direction of Wanda Ely, contributed drawings, layouts, and executed multiple interior & exterior projects to perfection.
Step outside into the beautifully landscaped yards, featuring a private backyard deck with a lounge and eating area covered by the cantilevered house design. It’s the perfect place to relax, entertain, BBQ, and savour the outdoors. The modern two-car garage has tons of storage space and is even eligible for a laneway home expansion (documentation available). Here you’ll also find you water and gas lines.
This meticulously crafted home combines luxury, efficiency, technology, and thoughtful design in a stunning package. It’s not just a house; it’s a lifestyle. Whether you’re a young family or someone seeking room to grow while staying close to downtown, this property is the embodiment of modern urban living.
