House of the Week: $2.2 million for a Mount Pleasant home with a huge fireplace
The Place: An ultra-modern, grey-brick home in Mount Pleasant.
Bragging Rights: Who needs the fireplace channel? This house has an enormous fireplace in the living room. It’s a feature so arresting that the buyer might even be tempted to leave the television off at his or her next family gathering.
Big Selling Point: A second-floor laundry room might not seem sexy—especially in comparison to the house’s other features, which include Nest thermostats, exterior cameras, radiant heating in the bathrooms and basement and an under-the-stairs wine cellar—but trust us: not having to lug baskets of clothing up from the basement is a huge draw.
Possible Deal Breaker: The wall-mounted toilets are sleek, but those space-age buttons on the wall might be a tad confusing to some first-time guests. They’re like something out of Demolition Man.
By the Numbers:
• 25-by-122-foot lot
• 5 bedrooms
• 5 washrooms
• 2 fireplaces
• 1 under-the-stairs wine cellar
• 1 home automation system
