House of the Week: $1.2 million for a brand-new modernist cube in East York
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
