House of the Week: $1.4 million for a Cliffcrest house with condo-like comforts

House of the Week: $1.4 million for a Cliffcrest house with condo-like comforts

Address: 39 Thatcher Avenue
Neighbourhood: Cliffcrest
Agent: Allister John Sinclair, ReMax Hallmark Realty Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $1,399,000

The Place: A modern Scarborough home on a huge, 50-by-150-foot lot.

Bragging Rights: The house is just a short distance away from Bluffer’s Park, which has some of the city’s finest (and most Instagram-able) views.

Big Selling Point: With wide-plank wood floors, a built-in espresso machine and two-storey glass windows, this place has the feel of a downtown condo—except here, instead of “one bedroom plus den, parking extra,” the buyer gets three bedrooms with four washrooms, three parking spaces and 18-foot ceilings.

Possible Deal Breaker: That huge gym in the basement is bound to make the owner feel guilty. Our advice: get a projector and a few couches and turn it into a media room instead. Eating “light butter” popcorn is pretty much the same as going on a diet, anyway.
