House of the week: $2.25 million for a designer original in Little Portugal
Exterior of home

ADDRESS: 6A Brockton Ave. NEIGHBOURHOOD: Little Portugal
AGENT: Paul Johnston, Right at Home Realty Inc., Brokerage PRICE: $2,250,000 THE PLACE: Interior designer Elaine Cecconi is selling her house near the rapidly gentrifying Dundas West strip. The four-storey home could be dubbed 2001: A Space Odyssey Home Edition (note the monolith)it’s all clean lines and geometric shapes. Spillers beware: the place is awash in white and comes complete with a futuristic gas fireplace, an industrial kitchen and an LED-lit bathtub that gives new meaning to the term “mood lighting.” The 800-square-foot rooftop, which can be accessed by elevator, provides great entertainment space or just a vantage point from which to witness the local hipster population’s weekend walks of shame.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Cecconi designed this place herself. She represents one half of Cecconi Simone, the superstar design duo that is gradually leaving its sleek mark on Toronto. BIG SELLING POINT: Steps away from Queen West and decorated by a design superstar, this spot is the perfect way to impress someone you just met at The Beaconsfield. POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The guilt that comes from being yet another one of Little Portugal’s agents of gentrification.

BY THE NUMBERS:

• 4,000 square feet • 4 washrooms • 4 parking spaces • 3 storeys • 3 bedrooms • 1 elevator • 1 gas fireplace
