House of the Week: $2 million for a sleek new townhouse on Harbord

Address: 356 Harbord Street
Neighbourhood: Palmerston–Little Italy Agent: Christopher Andrew Bibby, Re/Max Hallmark Bibby Group Realty Price: $2,050,000

The place

A newly built townhouse on Harbord, across the street from the new sushi joint Skippa and within a short walk of a Sam James coffee.

The history

Built on the site of a former gas station, this group of six townhomes by developer Oben Flats and architecture firm Superkul was completed in 2016. The structures’ walls, floors and roof panels were prefabricated to reduce waste and construction time, a rarity in the city. That allowed the frame to be raised in a matter of weeks, not months.

Here’s the dining room:

The living room is on the opposite end of the kitchen:

There’s an office as well:

The master bedroom has its own balcony, one of two on the property:

And another, which is primed to be a nursery:

There’s a laundry room on the same floor:

Here’s the other terrace, at the back of the house above the garage:

Big selling point

There’s the ultra sleek Scavolini kitchen and the eye-catching oak staircase, as well as little things, like the fact that laundry is on the same floor as the bedrooms, meaning the buyer won’t have to trek up and down said staircase every time they want to wash a load.

Possible deal breaker

Though there are two large terraces—one facing north and one facing south—there’s not much else in the way of a lawn or backyard. That said, Bickford Park, Christie Pits and Dufferin Grove are all fairly close by.

By the numbers

• $2,050,000 • $4.874.79 in taxes (2017) • 2,050 square feet • 4 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • 2 terraces • 1 parking space
