Prestigious Toronto Residence
16 Donino Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M4N 2W5
From the street, you will be impressed by the commanding 4-storey façade, made of sumptuous Indiana limestone (both cut and hand-chiseled). The spectacular 21′ high architectural window, by Pella, has refined leaded mullion detailing. Imposing. Regal. Grand. Details like these are echoed throughout the home.
Up one level, you arrive on the reception floor. Guests naturally will come from the front door into the elegant foyer, with hidden cloak room. You don’t need to worry about snow as the glycol boiler system heats the double driveway and front steps (it also heats the pool area and ground level floors).
They will in awe as they enter the opulent reception hall. Note the elegant custom designed deco-inspired floor heating grates. Lavish use of marble. The adjoining library, with walk-out to the front stone terrace, is richly paneled and fitted with cabinetry, by Irpinia. A catering kitchen and wine cellar make entertaining seamless.
You’ll spend most of your time on the magnificent main level. This level has been divided into two distinct areas: the open concept front of the house is for elegant entertaining, with its living, dining, and music rooms.
A more casual back of the house is simply extraordinary: the Irpinia kitchen is every cook’s dream come true. The attention to fine detail continues. Six foot wide fridge / freezer.
Top-of-the-line appliances. “Moonlight” marble countertops. The kitchen opens up to the breakfast area and family room, with walk-out to the back patio area.
Restful sleeps are found on the bedroom level. At the top of the stairs is the remarkable leaded glass ceiling. Reminiscent of the glamorous ceiling at Galeries Lafayette in Paris France. It took the craftsman over one year to hand assemble the art-glass.
The master suite takes the entire back of the house. The walk-in closet / dressing room has custom millwork by Irpinia.
The ensuite bathroom is beyond luxury: private water closet, full body spray shower that converts into a steam room, and classy chrome claw footed freestanding tub.
The indoor exercise pool by BonaVista Pools will keep you fit and trim. Choose to swim against the current or flick the switch to covert the end of the pool into a hot tub (with its back massaging spouts). This area has space for exercise equipment, a full bathroom, and a wet/dry cedar sauna. Turn up the seven built-in speakers, put on your 3D glasses, and be entranced by the latest release in the home cinema.
