Toronto’s Leaside neighbourhood is known for its historic homes, ample parkspace and family-friendly atmosphere. Amongst the many red brick century properties you’ll find lining the streets of this community, one modern abode stands out amongst the rest.

Located just off of Eglinton Avenue East, 79 Brentcliffe Road is a brand new addition to the Broadway Avenue and Brentcliffe Road neighourhood. This five-bedroom property boasts more than 3,700 square feet of luxurious finishes and high-end features, courtesy of Setless Architecture and Toronto-based builder, Karcon.

Rising two storeys on a generous corner lot, 79 Brentcliffe Road’s striking modern exterior is defined by custom floor-to-ceiling windows, clean lines, and an earth-toned brick façade. Stepping through the ten-foot-tall front door, you’ll be greeted by an opulent, single-slab granite fireplace in the sitting area overlooking the adjoining open concept living and dining space.

Across the room, a gourmet kitchen awaits your family recipes and weekend dinner parties. The natural stone centre island provides ample preparation space, plus 18 drawers for storing all of your culinary wares. The spacious great room opens onto a fully-fenced backyard where you’ll discover a covered patio and flagstone walkways that lead to the residence’s detached garage.

The home’s engineered oak flooring and walnut finishes throughout the cabinetry, baseboards and handrails bring a touch of warmth to every room. Down the solid ash tread stairs, the 1,800 square-foot basement is where you’ll find the home’s recreational area and dedicated fitness room, in addition to a full cedar sauna for a relaxing post-workout cool down.

“Contemporary meets comfort in this artfully-designed, one-of-a-kind property. The award-winning staging firm, Edison Studio, showcases this home’s true potential as a breathtaking destination to entertain, escape and unwind,” said Steven Green, sales representative, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd. “Situated in the desirable North Leaside neighbourhood, 79 Brentcliffe Road is walking distance to Toronto’s beloved Sunnybrook Park, plus restaurants, big-name retailers, transit stops and more. For urbanites who long for everyday convenience without sacrificing neighbourhood charm, this is the luxury home for you.”
