House of the Week: $2.7 million for a newly built home near the Ossington strip

Address: 38 Foxley Street
Neighbourhood: Little Portugal Agents: Duncan James Cameron, Sage Real Estate Limited, Brokerage Price: $2,695,000 Previously sold for: $1,162,000 in 2015, prior to a rebuild

The place

A three-storey new-build with high ceilings and massive windows, located near the trendiest part of Ossington Avenue.

The history

The owners tore down a two-storey home on this lot in 2015 and built a larger house in its place. The new structure has 10-foot ceilings on the first floor, and there’s a 168-bottle wine cellar in the dining room. There are white oak hardwood floors throughout.

The living room is at the front of the house:

The kitchen uses the house’s high ceilings to fit in a little extra storage space. The buyer had better bring a step ladder:

Big selling point

The 770-square-foot master bedroom on the third floor has views of the CN Tower and an ensuite bathroom with a cedar-panelled sauna—the perfect place to spend what remains of winter.

Here’s the main part of the master bedroom, with its own fireplace:

Possible deal breaker

The fourth bedroom is a little cramped, but its diminutive size frees up space in the floor plan for a second-storey laundry room:
