House of the Week: $2.35 million for a sleek, modern jewel just steps from UCC
ADDRESS: 60 Lonsdale Road
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Yonge-St. Clair
AGENT: Sacha Suzanne Hayward, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.
THE PLACE: Amongst the staid and conservative houses of Forest Hill, this contemporary masterpiece stands out as an original. With dark jatoba wood floors, an open-concept kitchen and a large corner gas fireplace, this three-bedroom home is modern in every sense of the word.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The place is mere steps away from Toronto’s ultra-posh boys school Upper Canada College. Even if you don’t have kids that go there, you might just meet scions of industry (or Suzanne Rogers) walking their dogs nearby.
BIG SELLING POINT: The televisions in the kitchen, family room and master bedroom are included. No need to deal with the staff at Best Buy—and better still, no nightmarish task of hanging them on the walls.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: BYOA. The artwork that adorns the house and blends so well with its modern aesthetic is, sadly, not included.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• $11,407.89 in taxes
• 4 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 2 parking spaces
• 1 retro Murphy bed in recreation room
