Karly's House Crushes - Week of July 1, 2013

37 Toronto homes and 34 Mississauga homes made my crush list this week.  My favourite this week is the detached home in Little Portugal on Heydon Park Rd.  There is so much to love - I love the neutral tones they chose throughout the home, the painted staircase with stained glass window, and I especially love the use of the bi-fold Nanawall out to the backyard. It extends the living space so nicely! I also love that this home is a short walk to one of my fave restaurants, The Lakeview, which was featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives recently. Definitely check out the photos of this one in the link below. 

I always love hearing which home is your favourite for the week. Check out the list of homes below.

Each week I publish my list of Toronto and Mississauga homes that came on the market over the past seven days that I'm crushing on. If one of the homes catches your eye, let me know and I can get you more details. Enjoy scoping out these dreamy homes.

 

This week's house photo is from a three bedroom townhome in Erin Mills in Mississauga that I put up for sale last week. I had fun styling this one! Check out all the photos here

My Toronto House Crush Highlights

  • The detached home in Little Portugal on Heydon Park Rd is my fave home this week. There is so much to love - I love the neutral tones they chose throughout the home, the painted staircase with stained glass window, and I especially love the use of the bi-fold Nanawall out to the backyard. It extends the living space so nicely! I also love that this home is a short walk to one of my fave restaurants, 
    The Lakeview, which was featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives recently.
  • The condo townhome on Spadina Rd has a private elevator and a view of Casa Loma, sign me up!
  • Reall cool live/work space on Augusta Ave in the heart of Kensington Market
  • Love the loft unit in the Toy Factory Lofts on Hanna Ave - nice big windows, and I know it's a little thing but I really like the built in shelving next to the shower

My Mississauga House Crush Highlights

  • Love the backyard of the home on Loyalist Drive, so lush and private
  • Great use of the terrace at 3066 Eglinton Ave W, love the "palm trees"
  • The condo townhome on Fieldgate Dr shows really well, but I am most impressed by the crazy intense home gym! Wow!
  • Crushing on the herringbone hardwood in the home on Cawthra Rd and all the really nice finishes throughout the home. Great curb appeal too!
  • Lorne Park home on Parkland Ave is beautiful, love the foyer and the backyard is an entertainer's dream!  
  • Couldn't resist selecting the home on Garden Rd in Lorne Park because it looks like a castle and has a wine cellar fit for a king!
