House of the week: $1.2 million for flawless views of Lake Ontario

House of the week: $1.2 million for flawless views of Lake Ontario

Sweet Escape

ADDRESS: 1 Lakeshore Dr. NEIGHBOURHOOD: New Toronto AGENT: Paul and Angela Giraudy, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd. Brokerage PRICE: $1.2 million THE PLACE: It may be unassuming from the outside, but this waterfront home is a 5,ooo-square-foot refuge for Torontonians who adore both the city and nature. Almost every one of the open-concept rooms has a panoramic view of Lake Ontario. The majestic master bedroom has a six-piece ensuite bathroom lined with lake-facing floor-to-ceiling windows.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: During the summer months, the 1,000-square-foot rooftop patio is an ideal place to tan. A wooden perimeter fence means complete privacy, and the outside shower makes it easy to cool off. Creative types might enjoy schmoozing with the neighbours, who include a handful of media personalities and artists, such as Roswita Busskamp. BIG SELLING POINT: Dare we say affordable? At $1.2 million, the asking price means potential buyers do not have to win a lottery to call this modern jewel home. POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The location—straddling the border between New Toronto and Mimico—is still evolving out of the “next hot ’hood” category.

POSH BY THE NUMBERS:

• 5,000 square feet • 1,000-square-foot rooftop patio • 4 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • 3-car garage • 2 lakeside walk-outs • 2 fireplaces • 2 storeys • 1 landscaped garden • 1 screened-in barbecue area • 1 fish pond
