One of the most important private homes in North America is for sale

This week a team of agent’s in my office had the pleasure of listing “one of the most important private houses in North America”. IMG_2673

The Integral House is for sale.

In 1999, a slight, unassuming man approached his architects with a whopping proposition: Build a house with curves, glass and a concert hall. No deadlines, no design restraints.  The man was James Stewart, an author of many mathematics textbooks.  If you’ve taken calculus at a university level, you’ve probably read his work.

I previewed the house the other day and I’ve got to say it’s magnificent; craftspeople and materials came from around the world and the result is… well, you’ve got to see it to believe it.

This 17,000 square foot, 5 level 3+1 Bedroom home perched on a Rosedale ravine.  It boasts a master suite, a 2 independent bedroom guest flat, and a guest suite.  It is modern marvel, has unbelievable views of the nature from every window, and a series of accordion like fins of wood that make for excellent acoustics in the concert hall entertainment space that can easily hold about 150 people.

The finishes throughout the house are second to none.  One can easily see appreciate the IMG_2681impressive modern architecture and space, but it’s the little things that really stand out for me.  Here’s just a few of them; leather wrapped banisters on the stairwells, the glass wall that sinks into the pool deck, carpet inlaid into the hardwood flooring, and the lovely leather pulls on all the built in closets.

It’s not for everyone, but if your wealth manager believes that you can spend $28 million on a house, it could be yours.
