Design details are the name of the game at a stunning and newly listed North Toronto home.
Redefining the modern family home by fusing intricate style-forward design details with warmth and comfort, the editorial-worthy Bedford Park property at 65 Bannockburn Avenue is a dream for the sophisticatedly approachable.
It checks all the boxes when it comes to the nice-to-haves in a family home -- a two-car garage, two laundry rooms, a mud room, comfortable living spaces, and a big backyard -- but does so in a way where the home itself remains a cohesive work of art.
Designed by the renowned Bananarch Design Studio -- the Toronto firm behind some of the city's finest properties -- the four-bedroom, six-bathroom home boasts bespoke finishes and was built by the Saaze Building Group, with impeccable attention to detail. This means everything from intricate wall panelling and stone throughout, to conversation-provoking light fixtures and skylights.
Standing on a 40x130-ft south-facing lot, the attention-commanding stone and stucco exterior sets the stage for the modern comfort housed within its walls. The main floor features a double-height foyer, heated floors, and a glassed-in home office that offers a together-but-distinct feel. And an added perk?The built-in coffee station.
The living and dining area is bright and open, with the sleek design warmed by a cozy gas fireplace. A large kitchen boasts top-of-the-line appliances that seamlessly blend into the décor, as well as a large central island. It joins the welcoming family room at the rear of the home.
A sleek staircase with glass railings leads to the second level, which is full of natural light -- thanks, in part, to skylights with solar-powered shades. All four bedrooms feature ensuite baths, with the primary bedroom boasting a steam shower. The primary retreat is finished with a marble-clad fireplace and a walk-in closet with no shortage of storage, thanks to ample built-in cabinetry. Another sun-soaked bedroom features a floor-to-ceiling window.

Meanwhile, a bright lower level offers more space to both lounge and entertain. Here you’ll find a spectacular rec room with heated floors and large windows, a built-in bar, a nanny suite, a secondary laundry suite, a cold room, a mud room, and direct access to a two-car garage.
Our Favourite Thing
Our favourite thing about this property is the main floor living and dining area. With its high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows -- complete with immaculately elegant curtains -- it reminds us of the interior of an inviting five-star hotel lobby bar. The resulting vibe both feels like home, and lends itself nicely to entertaining.
Perhaps one of the most coveted features of this property -- in the warmer months, at least -- is the bi-fold rear door from the family room that leads out to the raised and covered patio, offering a balance of indoor-outdoor living. Below the patio is a sizeable backyard that's framed by a new wood fence.
Beyond the fence, the breezy North Toronto neighbourhood is known for its top-notch schools, community programming, parks, restaurants, and boutiques.
A perfectly chic family home indeed.
