24 High Park Gardens – Andrea Morrison
24 High Park Gardens is a glorious century-old manor found in the highly prestigious High Park Gardens. Built in 1911, the grand estate underwent a complete custom renovation in 2016-2018 that saw it modernized and upgraded to meet today’s exacting standards while keeping all of the charm and cachet of the original construction. Featuring five superbly appointed bedrooms along with handsomely finished and inviting principal rooms, the residence is a magnificent example of skilled craftsmanship and impeccable style. The exterior of the home boasts an attractive brick facade with a covered front porch. Lush gardens and a stone walkway add to the beauty of the setting.
