House of the Week: $2.6 million for a super-modern Parkdale home with high ceilings
A sleek new detached home, located near Grant Van Gameren’s Parkdale hotspot Tennessee and close to Roncesvalles.

The third-floor master bath has on-trend black-trimmed windows, a large soaker tub, a dual sink vanity and—oh yeah—a view of Sorauren Avenue below.
