Address: 161 Coldstream Avenue
Neighbourhood: Lawrence Park South
Agent: Veronica Lord and Alex Pino, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada
The Place: A family home with a Tudor-style exterior and a contemporary interior near Avenue Road and Glencairn Avenue.
Bragging Rights: Architect Richard Wengle (known for his Block Townhomes) masterminded a renovation that brought in a sleek kitchen, open-concept layouts and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Big Selling Point: The sunken family room is both eye-catching in its own right and provides a great uninterrupted sightline from the front of the house to windows at the back.
Possible Deal Breaker: The area between the family room and kitchen could be a dead zone without a grand piano to fill it.
