The Henry Fliess house is temporarily off the market, according to Ecko Jay. Not sure why.

Here's a video of the house and property:

I just sent my completed heritage nomination request form for this property to heritage preservation services. I have strong support from the North York Community Preservaiton Panel, so we'll where this goes. Hopefully this beautiful house can be preserved.

Here's an interesting house. Looks like it's made of corten:

Check out the size of the property. Also, it's nice to see a fence, that is adjacent to an arterial road, designed well and delicately. Note the cut out sections that accommodate the existing trees on site, as well as providing visual relief:

^ That's a pretty good makeover. Still retains its original quirkiness but with a much more modern face.

I was browsing Google street view, yesterday, and happened across this intriguing house. Does anyone know anything about it? Its stonework is quite beautiful, artisanal and unusual. Could this have been a house that was built prior to the surrounding neighbourhood, that managed to survive development, or just a one off, custom built home?
