House of the Week: $2.8 million for a Forest Hill Tudor with modern conveniences (and a secret hatch)

Address: 300 Glenayr Road
Neighbourhood: Forest Hill South
Agent: Elaine Chelin, Harvey Kalles Real Estate
Price: $2,795,000

The Place: A Forest Hill Tudor, renovated in 2011 and 2012.

Bragging Rights: One of the second floor bedrooms has a secret ladder that leads to the third floor loft, making for a pretty cool hideaway.

Big Selling Point: The home has a lot of smart, modern touches. There’s a toe-touch vacuum in the kitchen (no more dust pans!), a laundry chute in the master dressing room and a tricked-out master bathroom with a television, a towel warmer and a heated floor.

Possible Deal Breaker: This is a great area, but if the buyer is planning a teardown they’d better watch out: the neighbours can be litigious.

By the Numbers:

• $2,795,000
• $10,819.83 in taxes (2014)
• 4 bedrooms
• 5 bathrooms
• 1 secret trap door
• 1 basement gym
• 4-year-old renovations
