House of the Week: $2.25 million for a blend of old and new that’s quintessentially Rosedale
ADDRESS: 120 Glen Road
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Rosedale-Moore Park
AGENT: Audrey Azad, Re/Max Hallmark Realty
THE PLACE: Set deep in the heart of Rosedale, this 2.5 storey brick reno comes with all the accoutrements you’d expect from a posh pad—six-burner stove, built-in sound system, glass showers and hardwood floors—without the lavish excess and overstatement common to this price point. Ideal for a city-slicker family, it’s close to downtown, but far enough away the kids aren’t hanging out on Jarvis at night.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Balconies and fireplaces aplenty. The master bedroom has a huge set of French doors opening to a Juliette balcony, the upstairs bedroom has its own balcony and one of the guest bedrooms houses one of the home’s five fireplaces.
BIG SELLING POINT: The open concept kitchen, which blends seamlessly with the dining and living areas, makes it a perfect spot for an intimate dinner party or one hell of Rosedale rager.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: If you haven’t lived in Rosedale before, be prepared to get lost a few times on your way back home. The meandering, curved streets may add to the house’s charm, but you’d better make sure that your GPS is working properly.
