House of the Week: $3 million for a modern retreat in Birchcliff

House of the Week: $3 million for a modern retreat in Birchcliff

Address: 6 Fallingbrook Woods
Neighbourhood: Birchcliff Agent: Mark Richards, Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd., Brokerage Price: $2,989,000

The place: A recently built three-bedroom with a modern, geometric aesthetic.

The history: The owners are an architect and a professional builder who jumped at the chance to have their way with a ravine lot. They worked within the area’s environmental protections to create an open interior that showcases the house’s unique surroundings.

Big selling point: This place is perched atop a hill, surrounded by greenery, and near Lake Ontario, making it feel like a retreat from city life. And yet, it’s just a short commute away from all the amenities of downtown.

Possible deal breaker: Some may find the interior a little stark—especially the ultra-white kitchen. But with so many upgrades (custom cabinetry, Thermador appliances, Corian countertops), the buyer will probably feel at home soon enough.

By the Numbers:

• $2,989,000 • $11,536.62 in taxes (2015) • 210-degree view from the terrace • 6 parking spaces • 5 bathrooms • 3 bedrooms

Judging by those dumpsters across the street, this house isn’t the only one on the block that has had some work done recently.

The kitchen is by Scavolini.
