The house is located in the West Queen West neighborhood of Toronto-a two-kilometer strip that runs along Queen West between Bathurst St and Gladstone Avenue which has reinvented itself since the 1990s as the city’s art and design district. The house covers an area of 2,500 square feet and features additional 800 square feet below grade. It features five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a parking space, bike shed, and a rooftop terrace that offers panoramic views of the city skyline.
