The Ellis Park House Defies That Little Foe Known as Gravity

When I found out that the Ellis Park House was built in Toronto, Canada I was pretty pleased, but when I found out that this magnificent abode is built mere blocks from where I'm living now, I became ecstatic. I am always very excited to see home-grown architecture and design on such renowned websites.

Built on quite a steep hill, it looks as if the Ellis Park House is about to fold over like a pack of cards. On the contrary however, this home isn't going anywhere fast as a three story retaining wall was literally drilled in to the side of the hill to allow for maximum support. In terms of design, this place has a good blend of contemporary and classic, making it fit in quite well in an urban neighborhood while at the same time retaining some of that rustic cottage feel.
