City House

O'Connor + Houle
Earl Carter

The ground floor of the dwelling is largely open plan, with a single services pod positioned just inside the front door. This pod separates the front bay window study area (a relic of the Arts and Crafts facade) from the kitchen and living areas. It contains a toilet and compact laundry, as well as a pantry and other cupboards of various shapes and sizes.

The kitchen is open, with the cooktop tucked neatly beneath the stair to the upper level. A generous central bench accommodates seating and kitchen work, and is topped in white marble.

The main bedroom is luxurious without being remotely ostentatious; this might also be a fitting description of the house overall. The second bedroom is of more modest dimensions, and fronts the old upper-level balcony facing the street. Two marble-lined bathing areas are provided on this floor.

A separate studio room that can be used as a work or sleeping space, and which has its own bathroom, has been constructed in the rear yard over a garage. Access is from the street to the immediate north of the lot.
