House of the Week: $1.2 million for a brand-new modernist cube in East York
Address: 13 Barfield Avenue
Neighbourhood: Danforth Village-East York
Agent: Michael E. Clarke and Leo Agosto, Keller Williams Advantage Realty
The Place: A newly built, four-bedroom house that brings a modernist vibe to East York.
Bragging Rights: The bathrooms are serenely spa-like, with oversized showers, gleaming white sinks and lots of storage.
Big Selling Point: The main level has floor-to-ceiling windows that make use of every bit of available sunlight (though you may want to install curtains if you like cooking breakfast in your pyjamas).
Possible Deal Breaker: In a neighbourhood of post-war bungalows, this two-storey home definitely stands out. Still, you’re in good company: the neighbouring house is another modern number.
By the Numbers:
• $3,069 in property taxes (2012)
• 2,600 square feet
• 10-foot ceilings on the main floor
• 7.5-inch-wide oak flooring
• 4 bedrooms
• 3 bathrooms
• 1 detached garage
• 0 previous residents

1.2 in this neighbourhood for this? Most of the block is bungalows worth less than half as much… Also it’s not near a subway. You can buy something nice a couple of blocks from a subway at, say, Yonge and Eglinton for this kind of money. Insane.
don’t believe the hype! Canada real estate will crash.
The amount of tax states the value of the property: one third
House has most likely not been assessed this year.
The new homes on this particular street have all sold from 1.13 million to 1.179 million, and half of the homes are renovated or new on this short street.
Good luck finding something like this for this price at Yonge and Eglinton, that would easily cost you 1.5 million, if not more with this quality and design.
The Subway is a 15-20 minute walk actually.
Buddy! What exactly is the point of your comment here? Guys like you are negative for the sake of what…? I really don’t get internet haters.
i guess he means the house prices are over inflated and hyped by realtors. Seems fairly straight forward to me. I tend to agree.
No matter how spa-like the bathrooms may be, this is one of the most depressing areas of Toronto to live in. Worth every penny to purchase elsewhere.
You must be hoping to sell your East York house and get out of that dreary wasteland – that’s why you’re trying to defend the area. But 20 minutes walking to a subway that many stops east is not a plus, it’s a negative.
