There’s nothing cookie cutter about the townhouse at 5-12 MacPherson Ave. The building it resides in used to be a century-old Methodist church until it was expertly converted into five luxury town homes. The lancet windows, hood moulds and gothic looking bell tower make this one of the most historic and unique residential properties in the city.
Townhouse five spans a whopping 4,300 square feet across three levels. The interior contrasts its gothic exterior with an sophisticated and modern design work completed in 2017. It offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms and nice-to-have amenities like a bar and sauna. The listing is located in the desirable Summerhill neighbourhood and on the market for $5.5 million.
Glossy floors and crown moulding immediately make an impression upon stepping into the foyer.
Two sets of double French doors in the living room provide access to the patio. A fireplace acts as the room’s focal point.
The spacious dining area can host a 10-person table.
This temperature-controlled wine cellar will definitely turn heads. It sits behind tall glass doors and can store hundreds of bottles.
A massive marble island provides lots of workspace in the gourmet chef’s kitchen. It comes equipped with high-end appliances and a built-in pantry.
A hand painted wrought iron railing guides you to the upper level. It’s possible for the future owners to install an elevator if they’d like to.
The primary bedroom is the perfect place to unwind thanks to its calming colour palette and floor-to-ceiling fireplace. It also comes with two walk-in closets.
It has a five-piece ensuite bathroom that includes two sinks, soaker bathtub and glass shower.
The other two bedrooms each come with large closets and Juliette balconies.
Vaulted ceilings with windows pour tons of natural light into the third floor family room. The room also has a custom wet bar with backlit glass.
Wall-to-wall bookshelves can be found in the office.
There’s also a cosy media room on this level.
No need for day trips to the spa when you have a private sauna to enjoy at home.
Residents have access to the private rear gardens, perfect for a quiet morning or small gathering.
