Slavens and Associates Real Estate

Slavens, 16 Thornbank Road
Esteemed Toronto architect Stan Makow’s innovative eye was wide open when he conceptualized this contemporary masterpiece. Using light, space and life’s natural elements to their fullest potential, Makow transformed an Ontario home with exceptionality. The creative expertise of award-winning interior designer Jeffrey Douglas complemented Makow’s work, as 16 Thornbank Road masterfully materialized into an address worthy of acclaim. “This home is for somebody with a really keen eye for architecture,” says Darren Slavens, vice president of Slavens and Associates Real Estate Inc., Brokerage.

With a style and rarity that visibly parallels the work of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this home manages to attain a high form of modernist architecture while still radiating familial warmth. The natural wood, stone and copper used on the exterior are just a few of the materials that unite to emanate a nature-driven charisma. Perched on an extensive piece of landscaped property, 16 Thornbank Road boasts a private backyard with in-ground salt-water pool and spa, basketball court, fire pit and several outdoor dining and entertaining areas. “The idea behind the backyard was to create almost like a cottage in the city; somewhere where you can come home and spend the weekend in the backyard. Because you’ve got total privacy back there with the tree-lined lot, it’s like your up north,” says Slavens.

This four-bedroom, six-bathroom home with multiple fireplaces boasts a media centre, wine cellar, home gym and several other revelations. Situated in a central area within walking distance to the serene Oakbank Pond, homeowners are at a prime location to travel to any part of the city. For those with their sights set on the stars, a sea of strategically placed windows in the home’s core allow for a picturesque view of the moon at night. “Every time of day the home has a different look, it’s just stunning.”

Listed by Darren Slavens and Daniel Pustil of Slavens and Associates, this modern-day dream home is officially on the market.
