House of the Week: $2.7 million for a glamourous Victorian in Yorkville
ADDRESS: 28 Belmont Street
AGENT: Carol Lome, Royal LePage/J&D Division, Brokerage
THE PLACE: Located within walking distance of the Mink Mile and Ramsden Park, this glitzy Victorian’s crystal chandeliers, coffered ceilings and decorative wrought iron details on nearly every window give it a glamorous, old Hollywood feel.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The home is tricked out with a sophisticated Control 4 home automation system, which operates the temperature, fireplaces, security system, lighting, sound and media through a handy wall-mounted keypad.
BIG SELLING POINT: The long galley kitchen provides an added layer of distinction and opulence with huge detailed windows, stainless steel appliances, integrated seating and crystal chandeliers. It’s the kind of room everybody wants to be in, all the time. Kitchen Living magazine even featured it in its annual entertainment issue.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With five wall-mounted TVs already installed, you’ll never miss a moment of the big game, or a Seinfeld rerun. That’s not always a good thing.
