Shaughnessy Charm

This new custom home replicates a century-old Tudor, matching the grand neighbourhood style. But like so many homes in this area, perceived value dictates that every cubic foot is scrutinized.


The lower floor is certainly not a “typical basement” – we divided a large space into private bedrooms and a full entertainment lounge. Key features include an ultimate bar with 2-sided glass TV, viewed from both sides of bar wall, flanked by 2 gas fireplaces and a fully-functioning 30 ft glass and red-brick wine cellar, cozy seating, pool table and karaoke/media room.

The kitchen is designed to be centrepiece of main floor with its rich-toned, wide plank, engineered hardwood Oak floors integrating the space.

The kitchen backsplash, an Italian-made 24ct gold ‘Sicis’ tile in custom-designed damask pattern is truly an eye-catcher.

Contemporary cabinets cleverly transition old-world look and complement custom-crafted millwork throughout house.

Another Tavan signature detail is the chrome-plated, custom-turned solid cast-aluminum posts that anchor the island.

Upstairs in the magnificent master ensuite is an open, curbless walk-in, double shower that soars to 16 ft. at vault’s peak. With dual showers within a shower, this unique design starts on floor and continues up wall. The spectacular shower wall features 24 karat gold-tiled damask pattern soaring to peak. Custom-designed and custom-assembled, the pattern begins horizontally and curves around edge as it rises, no corner! Traditional, yet contemporary piece – most would consider art! Built as a spec home, this home sold in days for $9 million.
