Cawthra Rd. and Queen Elizabeth Way

Size: about 3,800 sq. ft., plus about 1,260 sq. ft. finished basement

Lot: 60-by-132 feet, two-car attached garage, private double drive

Inspired by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s prairie style architecture, this custom-built, two-storey estate features built-ins throughout, high ceilings, stained-glass windows and a finished lower level with a wine room.

“I wanted a home that was warm and inviting with clean lines but with some interest. I sourced wood and stone from local businesses to Wisconsin, California and as far as Germany. What I couldn’t source I made, including the trims, doors, cabinets and counters,” says homeowner James Manson.

“I also did all the finish work, from plumbing to cabinet work. I commenced demolition of the old existing house 10 years ago and just finished it this June,” says Manson.

“Applewood Acres was an ideal neighbourhood to raise my daughter as the streets have low traffic and nearby there are good schools, parks, playgrounds, pools, a community centre and bike paths,” he added.

The home is also close to restaurants, shopping and a hospital.

“This truly one-of-a-kind home features built-in solid-wood furniture, upscale appliances, energy efficient materials, and leading-edge, high-tech equipment,” says listing agent Yuri Ching. “This property uses radiant hydronic in-floor heating. For car enthusiasts, this property comes with a 9,000-lb., two-post symmetric vehicle lift for an automotive shop in the garage. The private backyard has a gas barbecue, a large prep area, an outdoor fridge, a sink and a landscaped garden.”

With a stone and wood exterior façade, this impressive home has a covered front porch and entryway, an attached double car garage and a large front lawn with landscaping.

Inside, the foyer features a porcelain tile floor, wainscotting, a bench, a double closet, and direct access to a powder room and to the garage.

On one side of the foyer is the sunken living room with a hardwood floor, wainscotting and crown moulding, a bay window, gas fireplace and built-ins.

The dining room has a coffered wood ceiling with a stained glass skylight, a hardwood floor, double French doors, wainscotting and a double garden door walkout.

Kitchen highlights include a large island, soapstone counters, a custom backsplash, marble tile floor, wainscotting, high-end appliances, a pantry and a garden-door walkout.

The office has a recessed box ceiling with surrounding wood, wainscotting, two walls of windows and custom built-ins.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom includes a hardwood floor and crown moulding, a bay window, gas fireplace, walk-in closet and a five-piece ensuite.

Also, on this floor are a four-piece bathroom and two more bedrooms — both with built-ins and one with a walk-in closet. There is access to the second floor of the garage and stairs to a finished attic space.

The home’s lower level features a theatre room with an exposed brick wall, a wet bar, a wine cellar, a gym, a two-piece bathroom and a bedroom with a four-piece ensuite
