Warm Modernity

47 Queen Mary‘s Drive


In Context

Timeless Modernity Welcome to 47 Queen Mary‘s Drive, a residence of rare distinction in Toronto‘s Kingsway neighbourhood. The home‘s exterior presents a graceful, stately facade, updated with rich Indiana Limestone, and a circular cobblestone driveway. Linear, formal gardens flank the property, and have been planted with hearty perennials, creating an elegant transition from the street to the home. It is here, on first approach, that the artful balance between the home‘s heritage and it‘s contemporary reinvention is first suggested: a stainless steel planter, architectural lighting and precise attention to detail are the first hint of what‘s inside.

Space to Live

The home has been completely rebuilt, undergoing a “back to the bricks” renovation which introduced new electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems, as well as new cedar roof, windows and a brand new interior plan. These comprehensive renovations have resulted in the most exquisitely detailed interior, a jewel-like residence that presents a warm and comfortable modernity. Oiled wenge floors throughout, and a floating wood and custom glass staircase that pushes through the centre of the residence. There is extensive use of natural stone, found on the wood burning fireplace surrounds and hearths, to the radiantly heated bathrooms, to large quartz slabs used in the kitchen. Carefully curated throughout, with the absolute finest of materials and accessories. The large eat-in kitchen, for example, is manufactured by Valcucine and features toptier appliances including a fully integrated Sub Zero fridge, Gaggenau gas cooktop, Dornbracht faucet and crisp backpainted glass backsplash. Both of the home’s bathrooms present the finest of materials, complimented by furnishings and fixtures by Boffi, Vola and Wetstyle. This remarkable attention to the finest details extends even into the laundry, where a sideby-side Miele washer and dryer pair is set beneath a custom Corian work surface.
