A small, renovated bungalow in the desirable Woodfield neighbourhood.
Forget your usual impression of a downtown London bungalow before checking out this two-bedroom at the corner of Colborne and Regina streets. The contracting work was done by Dave Bell, and the husband-and-wife team of custom furniture maker Andy Roth (Roth Design Inc.) and interior decorator Sylvie Roth (Maison Sylvie) added their design flare (as an option, the house can also be purchased furnished).
Everything in this house seems like a bit of a statement piece. The vaulted ceilings in the open-concept living area are crisscrossed with robust timbers, while the dark black fireplace and tv area anchors the living room. The kitchen is centred around a dark granite countertop island, with seating for four, across from a unique recessed cooking station includes a gas range and a built-in hood vent. The whole place is wired up with built-in speakers with a component racking system in the basement. The bedrooms are built around exposed brick and come with plenty of closet space behind sliding farm doors.
The lot itself might even sell you ― a corner lot in one of London’s oldest neighbourhoods, only a few minutes’ walk from Victoria Park, with a manicured front lawn and a driveway that transitions into a private patio space.
