This is a full house renovation near Mount Pleasant and Eglinton, completed in 2019. Along with gutting the existing 2 storey semi-detached house, we added a rear addition to create 2870 sq. ft of useable space, including the finished basement. Although we retained the existing brick exterior, the interior and the addition are contemporary. The traditional front living room was replaced with a small study, mudroom, powder room and open entry showcasing a wood and glass staircase, allowing for the rest of the ground floor to accommodate a large, open concept kitchen, dining, and living room, with views and access to the backyard. The floor of the master bedroom suite on the second floor was raised by two steps to allow for a higher ceiling over the living room.
