It is too easy to say this converted church is a heavenly space, and, really, it is. The 6,OOO-square-foot former rectory in a circa 1888 Baptist church was developed and converted into a freehold townhouse that offers meticulous attention to detail and the finest finishes, says listing agent DonnaThompson of Harvey Kalles Real Estate. She has listed the property with Nick Thompson and Elise Kalles.
Sunlight floods every room through expansive windows, French doors with transoms and a custom skylight atop the dramatic staircase. Visitors will be impressed from the time they step into the front entry, feet on a smooth marble slab floor and eyes moving upward to treasures displayed on floor to ceiling custom shelves.
If the party is on the roof, a Cambridge elevator with black stained walnut walls awaits. The l,500-sq.ft. rooftop garden is a rare find, and - with two pergolas with retractable awnings, a fireplace, an outdoor shower, a gas barbecue system, a two-piece bathroom and plenty of room for lounging and al fresco dining, no detail has been overlooked. It even has professional lighting and sound systems to complement the exquisite landscaping, Thompson says.
Those who choose to tour the space will move from the entry foyer to the dramatic library. It has custom walnut bookshelves from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, with a ladder offering access to upper shelves, and a door leading to a powder room with a mosaic tile floor.
The house then offers a great room that includes a spacious kitchen with a dark wood and white laminate work island and cabinetry. The dining area has two tables for four and a living area beyond has a gas fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden. French doors are equipped with Phantom screens to let breeze enter and keep unwanted pests out.
A great spot for morning coffee in your pyjamas, the garden has a stone terrace and is enclosed by a red brick wall that provides the ultimate in privacy. The second-level master suite has a gas fireplace, a lavish six-piece marble ensuite and a dressing room with custom shelving for everything from shoes to hats. The current owners are using the second bedroom as an office.
The third level has an open concept media room flanked by two bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom.
Three on-street permits provide parking, while its two underground spots are accessed by a vehicle elevator.

We’re often asked what the best time to sell or buy is. There are certain times of the year that have higher volumes of transactions and average sales prices (most predominantly spring, April through July, and Fall, September through October). As can be seen in the graph (compiled from the Toronto Real Estate Board’s MarketWatch numbers), the average sale price for the Central Toronto region ranges from a low of $675,100 in January 2015 to a high of $855,942 in May 2015. We expect that this Fall market will hold consistent with the pattern seen in 2014.

2014 through 2015 Market Stats - New Listings and Sales price

The graph, however, doesn’t tell the most important part of the story. There are many occasions when an ideal listing time comes down to local inventory - what is available at the moment, and what will be listed in the next week. Knowing the inventory, and the buyers that are actively searching, can lead to a much higher price even in the ‘off-market’ periods because there is less (or no) competition from similar properties. It comes down to a matter of weeks, and sometimes, days. We've even had record breaking sales prices in July and December! If you have questions, please call us – we’re here to help!

'Charles Eamesonce remarked that "eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to the quality per se." In the case of the Wolf House in Toronto, several people connected over thirty years to create and maintain this award-winning architectural landmark.'

From Barton Myers to Heather Faulding and Yabu Pushelburg, this house is as remarkable today as it was thirty years ago!

Most new condominiums in the city have a lot of glass. Listings advertise floor to ceiling windows; they rave about all of the sunlight that streams through; they highlight the uninterrupted view. But no one ever mentions that all of that glass makes it hard to hang art.

And for Bob Harding, that was a problem.
