On behalf of our agents The Thompson Team of Nick and Donna Thompson, Harvey Kalles Real Estate is proud to present The Wolf House, one of the greatest gems of Toronto’s luxury real estate market.

Built in 1974 by award-winning architect Barton Myers, The Wolf House is proof that Toronto’s historic architecture need not be Victorian, and that modern architecture need not be cold or clinical. With three floors, three bedrooms, and three bathrooms, and 4,693 square feet, Wolf House is right for families, professionals, those who love to entertain, and those who long to stay in. Myers won the prestigious Architectural Record House of the Year Award for Wolf House, and visitors immediately understand why: golden pear wood panels and cabinets, Carrara marble surfaces, floor to ceiling windows with stunning views of the Rosedale ravine system, hardwood maple tongue and groove flooring, and many other features make this modern home a delight for the senses. The house’s charm has only endured: in 2012, it was the Toronto Life Home of the Year.

Lawrence and Mary Wolf have enjoyed their home at 51 Roxborough Drive for many years. In 2008, they asked New York architect Heather Faulding to re-design the interiors of the kitchen and living room. She left the house more than ready for entertaining, and Mr. Wolf refers to the space as “The most glorious dining room in all of Toronto.” Wolf House also features the landscape designs of Walter Kehm, and the cabinetry and other interior designs of Yabu Pushelberg. All three have worldwide design experience, bringing a global spirit to this piece of Toronto’s architectural history.

Nestled deep in the trees of one of Toronto’s oldest and greenest neighbourhoods, The Wolf House allows for a sense of peace and seclusion in the heart of the city. From the large oval Jacuzzi tub, one can look out on the ravine from the floor-to-ceiling windows, or draw the solar shades before descending to the heated limestone floor. The house features multiple innovations in environmentally-friendly technology, such as LED lights, solar heating in the in ground pool, double-panelled windows, and retractable ceiling awnings. This does not mean a shortchange in luxury: the kitchen features two Dacor warming drawers, a wine cooler, a SubZero refrigerator, and built-in Miele appliances, including a dishwasher, coffee maker, and vegetable steamer.

The Wolf House is the perfect home for someone who can appreciate its unique juxtaposition of industrially-influenced architecture and openness to the natural landscape. The Wolf House embodies exciting dichotomies for its new inhabitants: strong but vulnerable, urban but hidden, modern but natural. It is not a standard home, but it is a home for people with the highest standards.
