House of the Week: $1 million for a mod-style maison just north of the Beach
ADDRESS: 248 Scarborough Road
NEIGHBOURHOOD: East End–Danforth
AGENT: Audrey Azad, Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd., Brokerage.
THE PLACE: Just north of the Beach, this four-bedroom house blends retro mod and a contemporary aesthetic: sleek glass walls and a whole lot of beige, with ’60s-style lamps and a Brady Bunch–esque open-riser staircase.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The baddest bathroom on the block. The master ensuite has two sinks, an etched-glass door separating the toilet from the rest of the room and a shower big enough to host a party in.
BIG SELLING POINT: The main floor is an entertainer’s dream. Traffic flows from the front living room through the kitchen (with tall bar stools perfect for nibbling hors d’oeuvre or sipping martinis) to the dining room (with space for an eight-person table) and then finally out to the expansive backyard.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The backyard is perfect for a pool. But there’s no pool.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• 4 bedrooms
• 4-burner stainless-steel Wolf stove
• 3 bathrooms
• 1 wine fridge
