The scene of House of Bryan Season 1, and the home where star contractor Bryan Baeumler along with his wife and three children (soon to be four!) spent the past three years, is for sale.
Listed at $1,795,000, the custom-built, two-storey home in Oakville, an affluent community outside of Toronto, looks not all that different with all the furniture gone. What this really means is that the true personality and soul of the home is in its bones, which would only make sense as Bryan Baeumler built it himself, from scratch (if you watched House of Bryan Season 1, you’ll recall that the furniture and most of the decorating he had nothing to do with.) As an aside, it’s a good reminder of how important it is to invest in your home’s structure, rather than in the decorating bells and whistles. It really shows when you strip the home bare of all the fixings…
But as great as this home is, the Baeumler clan is moving on. In a recent article for the Toronto Star, Bryan reveals that with baby no. four on the way, and the good (if at times trying) times they had building the cottage (House of Bryan Season 2), they’ve developed a taste for the country, “Yes, the “House of Bryan” is goin’ country. Against my own advice, we’ll be living [at the new home] while we complete an addition and total renovation. It’s going to be another crazy year, but we’re definitely looking forward to the adventure,” says Bryan, and I can see the glimmer in his eye through the text.
We too are looking forward to what antics the Baumler clan will allow us access to in the near future, as the lines between Bryan’s real and TV life continue to blur in our favor
