At first glance, this modern building looks more like a museum than a residential building.

So much so that the foyer includes a waterfall fountain installation.

To be clear, most homes don’t have a floor-to-ceiling water feature in their front entrance — that’s some art gallery stuff right there.

The front door.

But it could be because 14455 Woodbine Ave. was designed by architect Prithula Prosun Roy.

Roy has designed buildings like the University of Windsor and they also built the Bialik Hebrew Day School in Toronto.

Despite its museum qualities, however, this home has all the warmth and comfort of home. 14455 Woodbine Ave.  Whitchurch-Touffville

The kitchen and the dining room.

Its architectural style is definitely modern and minimalist with clean lines and large open spaces.

The backyard.

The backyard is so big that the patio and outdoor kitchen look comically small.

The master bedroom.

The bedrooms, particularly the master suite, are just as great as the ground floor rooms.

The master suite also has a spa-like bathroom with a rain shower with a random boulder in it, giving you that outdoor shower feeling year-round.

But the best part of the house is the courtyard which is in the middle of the house.

It truly makes this home perfect for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. And who doesn’t want a cool courtyard in the middle of their home?
