Churchill Park Condominiums, a lauded project at Spadina Road and St. Clair Avenue led by Tower Hill Development Corporation, is now 80 percent sold – a sales record that, we’re guessing was helped by the building’s two spectacular model suites.
Apparently highly conscious of the building’s curved elongated oval exterior, the team from Bryon Patton and Associates, which included Sean Swayze and Enid MacIntosh, moulded the model suites so that they reflect the contemporary but timeless architectural lines.
Buyers, says Ms. MacIntosh, get it: “The buyers here are very sophisticated, They expect an extremely high level of finishes, and everything about Churchill Park is top quality. We designed the models to get visitors excited about how they can decorate their suites to create individual looks.”
The two-bedroom model (which we experienced along with the rest of the building first-hand a few weeks ago) is an amazing blend of pale creams and mauves with hints of sparkling glass and chrome. In the kitchen, the limestone floor contrasts slightly with the bottom cabinets in a washed wood, while the uppers are painted a gauzy off-white. The master bedroom projects a “dreamy and restful” ambiance, says Ms. McIntosh, while the second bedroom introduces a touch of whimsy with dog silhouette pillows and accessories. The bathroom demonstrates a supremely impressive eye for detail and plays with a melange of glass and marble.
The second model suite – a two-bedroom plus den layout – employs a darker colour palette throughout for an atmosphere that evokes a sort of refined edginess. “The wide-plank hardwood flooring here has a gray-brown finish,” Ms. MacIntosh says. “In the sweeping large living/dining room, we added an area rug that pulls in all colours from slate grey to black, and resembles an animal print. The black velvet sofas feature nail heads for a traditional, masculine touch, and the horse painting picks up on the linear aspects of the rug.”
It works! We particularly loved the flexible home office which was decorated in a cool kind of lounge-like mode.
Tempted by the model suites? Well how ’bout a penthouse? The two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den and two-bedroom plus den two-level penthouse suites at Churchill Park Condos range in size from 1,077 to 3,350 sq. ft. and in price from $909,000 up to $3,029,000.
