Name & Location
Yarmon House
12 Spinney Court
Don Mills, Toronto

OTHER IDENTIFICATION
Alternate names:
Formerly 91 Laurentide Drive

Notes:
- A stunning example of a house designed in the modernist style; arguably the most impressive in Toronto. - One of about half a dozen custom built homes designed by Henry Fliess in the Donalda area of Don Mills. - The house has been preserved (both inside and out) in its original style, decor and colour palette. It is an interesting, rare and well documented time capsule of 1950s living. - The house interplays with the natural aspect of the site with the way it was thoughtfully built into the slope of the ravine it rests on. The use of wood and stone on the exterior pay respect to the notion of being intertwined with nature.
