Ever want to live like a balling math professor? We didn’t know that was a thing either, but Integral House is a private residence commissioned by the late, math genius/violinist Professor James Stewart in Rosedale. It boasts pretty much every amenity you can think of – then they added a concert hall.
Designed by the world renowned Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, the house took 10 years from conception to completion and had a final price tag estimated at $24 million – more than the current asking price (just under $23 million) Trilogy Agents have it listed at. $23 Mil is total steal since it was called “one of the most important houses built in North America” by MoMa’s director Glenn D. Rowly, and won the 2012 Governor General Architecture Award. If that doesn’t impress you, we’re not sure what will.
In addition to being the Single Variable Calculus textbook Czar, Stewart was an entertainer and professional violinist. When he was in residence he held fundraisers for David Bowie, Adrienne Clarkson, and Justin Trudeau, amongst others.
If the place looks more than a little familiar, you might recognize it as the backdrop of Chantal Kreviazuk’s Into Me music video.
If you’re a total math nerd you’ll also be excited to know why the property is called ‘Integral House.’ Being a math star himself, Stewart had the architects model the shape of the home to mimic an integral—which in math is a function that’s used to find areas, volumes, central points and other cool math things.
