House of the Week: $4.9 million for a South Hill home covered in floor-to-ceiling windows
The Place: A towering contemporary home with five bedrooms in the quiet and leafy South Hill neighbourhood.
Bragging Rights: The master suite has two very luxe features: a three-sided fireplace separating the bedroom and bathroom, and a balcony that spans the entire width of the house.
Big Selling Point: Plenty of natural light and fresh air. There are floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor spaces on every level.
Possible Deal Breaker: With marble floors on the main level and Brazilian hardwood on the second and third floors, you’ll probably need to invest in some area rugs—or at least a pair of cozy slippers.
