new house inspiration

I have definitely decided. This is the way i want my next house - an old property from the front but then with a minimal extension on the back like below. That way i get all the character i want in the house but also the modern simple lines in the extension. Most probably we would have to add the extension after finding the right house as i think finding the whole package would be very unlikely!
.
Forgot to mention - this house is in cabbagetown, toronto (see nothing is ever perfect.... cabbagetown...??? is that an actual serious place.... )
.




That bathroom is nearly the size of my lounge!

Oh my word! That's actually one of the best houses ever! I love it from the front...the garden and railings..and the extension on the back...has quite a 60s/70s feel to it. Definitely get the best of both worlds. Where is it?

Wow, an amazing home! I love traditional (old house) exteriors and modern interiors. Mid-century furniture pairs nicely with plaster walls and hardwood floors.

I never thought about that... trad from front, mod from the back. (Like my abbreves?) I like it! Nice find.
