643 Carlaw Avenue

Sold - Riverdale, Toronto, Canada

An iconic Home · Inspired by the industrial hard lofts of New York and Japanese minimalism, 643 Carlaw Ave (Carlaw Heights) is a one-of-a-kind, custom built home that has truly become a landmark and iconic home in Riverdale.

This home has been meticulously crafted from top-to-bottom offering various living and outdoor spaces. When you enter this home, you will be immediately blown away by the warmth and character of the 12’ ficus tree, massive granite boulder and polished concrete floors. As you make your way up to the kitchen, the repurposed original brick has been refinished and painted white to give you a sense of character and age. The Euro-style kitchen is seamless and clean. Every detail can be hidden and tucked away. Less is more is a common theme throughout this home.

The expansive wood windows throughout are nearly 8’ feet tall and add to the sense of urban loft living. This is especially true at the front of the house in the sun-drenched living room that faces West over Withrow Park. The master ensuite is the perfect retreat with elevator access, Native artisan sink, a private rooftop patio and expansive walk-in closet.

The finesse and care that has gone into every detail is unlike anything that I have ever seen before. The home is a perfect example of what can happen when a home is designed with a purpose and a theme. The spaces blend together and create a sense of unity. The house flows especially well with the use of soft charcoals and greys throughout such as the hand troweled wall and engineered white oak flooring from Spain.

The features and finishes of this urban masterpiece play homage to the past but leverage modern building technologies to the next level. It’s like walking into a piece of artwork.
