Discovering Dream Homes: A $3.3 million beauty in the Beach in Toronto

Reality TV has shown us that extreme makeovers aren’t just for people anymore.  It’s incredible to see what ingenuity, creativity and hard work can do when it comes to a home renovation, and what eye popping results can be produced.

Take 142 Fallingbrook Road, formerly a bungalow in Toronto’s east side Beach neighborhood.

With some time, a great team and a dream house budget and materials, this home has been truly transformed:

This 4 bedroom, 6 (!) bathroom beauty clocks in at over 4000 square feet.  Its exterior has been redesigned in Californian style, complete with floor to ceiling windows, Indiana Natural Limestone and imported Spanish Brick.  The backyard features 2 different areas for entertaining and plenty of space for a growing family or all the outdoor guests you can safely host.  Smarter than your average home, this house is fully wired and integrated to manage from the palm of your hand, connecting temperature control, television, blinds, alarm system and more with top of the line Smart Home technology.  Along with top of the line technology, it’s clear that the utmost care and attention to detail went into the selection of all materials and finishes that make this house so very impressive.
