Art, Bespoke, Contemporary, Details, Elegance, Freedom, Garage, Thurloe…a designer’s alphabet of everything you want in a home is carefully crafted within the walls of 11 Thurloe Avenue.
On a quiet corner in midtown Toronto, bespoke builders Shram Homes (known for refined Toronto mansions) paired with architect Richard Wengle and interior designer Robin Nadel to build 6 luxury houses that share professionally landscaped irrigated gardens and a rare underground garage. Say goodbye to shovelling snow in this rare luxury hybrid home that also provides the convenience of condominium living. And yes, 11 Thurloe Avenue has its own private elevator! Simply arrive home to one of your three parking spots, tune into your C4 automated system to dim the lights, cue the music, flick on the gas fireplace, then relax… so sophisticated.
The kitchen is truly beautiful. A ten foot Corian waterfall dining island, two striking nine-foot chrome glass display armoires, custom walnut, white and stainless steel cabinetry, marble herringbone backsplash, top-tier Miele 5-burner appliances and an adjacent pantry with a Sub-Zero wine fridge will satisfy any appetite.
A mahogany stained decorative arch was with stainless steel pot lights for added finesse and picks up on the recessed LED accent lights on the architecturally magnificent glass, chrome and oak staircase.
Ten foot ceilings in the refined living and dining areas, plus numerous custom built-in shelving units, provide a great canvas for your art and family treasures. The living room wall of windows opens to the terrace with outdoor speakers, a remote-controlled retractable awing, and gas BBQ hook up for easy entertaining.
Three bedrooms upstairs, each with walk-in closets plus ensuites with heated floors, provide bright multipurpose lifestyle options. The 18 by 17 foot second bedroom has the scale to serve as an alternative master or family room. The third bedroom is currently used as a well-equipped fitness centre. These second floor bedrooms are on opposite sides of the laundry room and mechanical room creates great privacy for your family and guests.
One of the most divine experiences is entering the Master Retreat on the third floor into a finely textured celebrity-calibre closet equipped with dressing island, glass display drawers, shoe closets, discreet mirrored cabinets (for jewelry, ties, scarves) under the glow of your favourite chandelier. The bedroom features a built-in audio visual cabinet with shelves, a custom mirrored wall, and romantic private balcony.
Rare dual showers with white marble benches and product niches, a soaker tub with a Kohler ceiling-mount tub filler, a separate water closet with Duravit toilet and seat system, a skylight, and an 11 foot floating vanity with two sinks make every day a spa experience.
Six-inch oak wood plank engineer floors on all living areas are skillfully matched in tile replicas on the lower level to accommodate your sports gear.
The lower level has access to a well light underground garage, your three parking spots and a locker. Welcoming radiant heated floors warm the sports dressing room /mudroom and hallway to the elevator. Whether you use the elevator for mobility or sending your dry-cleaning to a bedroom, this special feature adds value and versatility to your life for decades to come. An added bonus is the custom sideboard with fridge to store water or wine for your next outing.
11 Thurloe is walking distance to Yonge, Mount Pleasant and Bayview shops, Yonge subway, the future LRT Eglington Line that will take you to Toronto Pearson Airport, great schools, tennis courts, bike / hike trails and June Rowlands park with its splash pool and wonderful Farmer’s Market.
This is truly a unique luxury home with the freedom to live hassle free with the simple turn of a key.
