Tour A Dreamy Beach House In Midtown Toronto

Hayley Atkins’ life may be in Canada, but her heart lives in California. It beats for the beach in Malibu and the sweeping vistas of glittering ocean along the Pacific Coast Highway. In reality, Hayley lives on a quiet street in north Toronto, but she didn’t let any of that stop her from creating the West Coast beach house of her dreams. She found a kindred spirit in designer Montana Burnett, who has created beach-inspired spaces for restaurants, cottages and the sandal brand Tkees, a favorite of celebrities.

The home’s urban beachside quality is both livable and luxurious — a daily escape with all the conveniences of big-city life. It’s not Malibu, but when you’re stretched out on the down-filled sofas, sunlight streaming over your shoulder, you can almost hear the crashing Pacific Ocean outside the windows. Take a virtual tour of the 4,500-square-foot house that’s a stunning homage to everything sun, sand and surf.
