House of the Week: $2.4 million for a Cedarvale new-build with a giant wall of windows
The Place: A contemporary new-build, steps away from Cedarvale Park.
Bragging Rights: As pricey decorative flourishes go, the 17-foot wall of windows stretching along the back of the house is a good one. It affords the owner an incredible view and it completely eliminates the need to hang artwork.
Big Selling Point: The saltwater swimming pool in the backyard is like social currency. Come summertime, whoever buys this place will have no trouble meeting the neighbours. (Getting them to leave, on the other hand, might be a problem.)
Possible Deal Breaker: Speaking of windows, there are a lot of them. Anyone fond of post-shower promenades would definitely need to invest in a good bathrobe.
By The Numbers:
• $12,952 in property taxes (2014)
• 17-foot curtain wall
• 4 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 2 storeys
• 2-car parking
• 1 gas fireplace
