House of the Week: $1.8 million for a five-bedroom, Beach-adjacent home
ADDRESS: 67 Blantyre Avenue
AGENT: Paul Sabiston, Royal LePage Estate Realty
THE PLACE: Located just a block from The Beach proper, this large five-bedroom, four-bathroom house has great bone structure, complemented by a renovated kitchen and living room. The huge master bathroom and impressive curb appeal make this place stand out in an area full of post-war standards. With the lake and the Toronto Hunt Club within walking distance, having a beautiful summer has never been simpler.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The private outdoor hot tub could make this the most popular backyard in town.
BIG SELLING POINT: Heaven’s in the details here, with small upgrades that nudge this home from “comfortable” to “awesome”: Wolf dual stove, massive windows, cathedral ceilings, heated bathroom floors, Miele dishwasher, oversized water heater, customized multi-area sound system, and walk-in rain shower.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The insufferable debate over calling the area “The Beach” or “The Beaches.”
BY THE NUMBERS:
• 50-foot lot
• 48-inch fridge
• 5 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 2 storeys
