Drool-worthy Beaches pad – 46 Herbert Ave

We have a soft spot for clean, modern design and this FelixLeicher designed beauty does not disappoint!

Though at $2,099,000 – it had better not!

This West-facing abode is well positioned for evening sun and features 4+1 bedrooms,  4.5 bathrooms and a finished suite in the basement for potential income, extra family members, or whatever else you might want.


The space feels light and bright with warm wood touches via the feature wall. As a bonus, that wall will likely block those blistering winter winds for those seated in the room when the doors open during those chilly Canadian winters.


While we love the look of wooden casings and black interior windows/doors individually, but we’re not sure we love them together. Still on the fence about this one…


Great lines in this space and fortunately lots of storage. We’re not loving the back splash as much, but it makes sense as a design choice.


The millwork is exceptional and we’re loving the wooden touches between the counter top and cabinet bases.


We love how the pendant light complements the darker windows and doors – with a touch of metallic material.


A great space to enjoy the afternoon sun (and perhaps a beverage or two!)


We are loving this light fixture – the subtle pop of colour is right up our alley (and not too over the top in this mellow, modern space).


And here’s where things go astray for us. While we love a good hex tile (and kudos for the scale of these bad boys!) – there seems to be too many textures happening at once here. Maybe it’s the dual shower floor tiles, or the fact that the hex tiles continue on the bathroom floor, but it all feels a bit too busy for the space.


We’re loving the flooring, angled windows, and natural light in this space.


Bonus points for no quarter round!


Okay, okay. We know these mixed style tiles featured on the shower wall are very “on trend” right now, but they feel like a quickly passing trend to us (or at least, we hope they are!). While the colours of the tiles are muted, they still just feel too busy for our tastes. Less is more. Otherwise, nice clean lines in the space.


Bring on the master oasis! We are loving the open, airy feel of this space. The angled ceiling and huge skylights make the space feel big and bright.


While we’re not as keen on open clothing storage (cue the visual clutter), this millwork looks great and uses the space well. Just swap out that painting for a full length mirror and you’re in business.


The mirror situation in this room is bit interesting. We might have placed the vanity on the wall opposite the tub/shower to fully utilize the wall for a mirror, but, to each his/her own.


A cozy spot to hang – bonus points for privacy.


Sleek looking (albeit modest) basement apartment. Loving the unconventional back splash choice here.


Is it just us or are these seriously high ceilings for a basement?? We’re feeling it.


And to cap it off, a cool outdoor space with room to entertain (and park a vehicle, or two!)
