Address: 31 Lytton Boulevard
Neighbourhood: Lytton Park
Agent: Kevin Michael McCarthy, Royal LePage, Johnston and Daniel Division, Brokerage
Price: $4,495,000

The Place: A, 5,000-square-foot, contemporary new build in Lytton Park, designed for a buyer with luxurious tastes.

The History: The home was completed in 2015 by ArtHaus, a developer known for upscale, contemporary uptown homes. Among the flashy finishes: West African wenge and walnut feature walls, heated marble floors in the bathrooms and a sleek, open kitchen with custom cabinetry and Miele appliances. The property was staged for sale with artwork from Katzman Contemporary, a gallery in the Junction.

Big Selling Point: The house has all the conveniences a buyer would expect for the price, including a heated driveway, security cameras and an elevator. There’s even a home automation system that allows the owner to manage household appliances using a touch screen.

Possible Deal Breaker: Once all the show furniture is gone, it’s going to be difficult for the new owner to make the interior of this place look anywhere near as sleek as it currently does. Any potential buyers had better have a healthy amount of extra money set aside for decoration.
