36 Woodlawn Avenue W












Property Description

“The scope of this project included extensive interior renovations to a downtown three-storey house, including raising the third-floor dormer roof and extensive built in millwork. The renovations focused on connecting the interior with the outside ravine while creating an exciting interconnection of interior spaces. The ground floor was almost completely rearranged to provide a layered, continuous flow of entertainment space that always has the ravine as the backdrop. Volumetric layering of the interior was achieved by using panels of frosted glass, wall slots, metal mesh curtains, lighting, and layering of shifted colours”. – PLANT Architect Inc.

Welcome to 36 Woodlawn Avenue West – a Globe and Mail Design Exchange Awards winner, and a thoughtfully laid out family home! Described as ‘a modernist home with room for an extended family’, this 5+1 bedroom home boasts 3,485 finished sqft over four levels, situated on a 179′ deep ravine-like lot in prime Summerhill. This home’s award-winning renovation focused on capturing the beauty of the rear woodland setting, with expansive windows and custom cherrywood millwork throughout, mimicking the organic feel of nature. The design encapsulates a sense of ‘visual informality’, with an open concept main level that is equally ideal for hosting guests as it is for casual family gatherings. The focal point of the living room is the fireplace with honed slate and cherrywood surround. The dining room opens conveniently to the kitchen with heated flooring. Guests may gather around the central island with polished slate countertop, or, slide the custom metal mesh room divider across to hide any mess! The sunny breakfast area with built-in bench seating walks out to a large deck overlooking the private rear yard – ideal for enjoying your morning coffee. Upstairs, three good-sized bedrooms are serviced by a four-piece bathroom with floating vanity with Artemide sconce lighting. Two of the bedrooms enjoy additional sitting areas that are ideal for studying from home. The third level of the home comprises an expansive home office and a true master suite with walk-in dressing room and five-piece ensuite. This space features a custom cherrywood bed frame, built-in nightstands and bookshelves, and expansive windows overlooking the rear yard. The current owner states “in the summer we can open all of the windows and it is like being in a treehouse”. A frosted sliding glass door opens to your spa-like ensuite with heated flooring, double vanity with vessel sink, and soaker tub/shower. The finished lower level boasts a separate side entrance, as well as walk up access to the rear yard. This versatile space with an additional full bathroom could be used for recreation/media, a home gym, a nanny suite, or additional work from home space.

This home achieves a warmth that is rarely found in contemporary design. Combined with its coveted midtown location, it is the ideal setting for professionals and urban families alike!
