Imagined around the concert hall, Integral House is all about music and entertaining. Music feeds the soul. Acoustically perfect concert hall easily seats 200 people, with an additional 100 guest in the upper galleries above. Cocktail lounges, bar, catering kitchen – the house has an incredible separation between public and private spaces. A total of 97 offset White Oak “fins” create the illusion of undulating curved window.
A very sophisticated house – four completely separated bedrooms in total. Master bedroom suite on the 500 level; guest suite on the 200 level; and independent 2 bedroom guest flat (also on the 500 level).
The art gallery area leads into the study, with a conference table area. Behind the study is the home office where files and paperwork stay out of view.
One floor lower brings you to the ground level. The spa level is all about health and well-being. Swim against the gentle current of the indoor exercise pool. Integrated with the pool is a hot tub. When activated, the water level of the pool lowers and the adjoining wall acts as a waterfall. In summer, the approximately 30 foot long window wall descends below grade to open the pool complex to the outdoors. Exercise room, sauna, change facilities, powder room, and wet sauna are found on this level. Walk-out to the stone patio and you sitting in the midst of nature. An unparalleled natural setting in the heart of one of Canada’s most prestigious neighbourhoods.
For ease of winter living, the driveway + walkways are heated; as is the flooring throughout the residence. Triple car garage. Three wood-burning fireplaces.
