House of the Week: 66 St. Germain Avenue

Posted by Leslie Bank / December 24, 2013

66 St. Germain AvenueYou won't be able to miss this house: a tall, geometric, pristine rebuild plunked down on a Lawrence Park street lined with traditional brick houses. 66 St. Germain towers over its closest neighbours, although there are a few similarly modern houses nearby. In the back, floor-to-ceiling windows provide a treetop view from the master penthouse. If items like "penthouse," "upstairs laundry room" and "3-storey skylight" fill your list of real estate wants, this house is definitely worth a look.

The new and modern 66 St. Germain offers four floors' worth of living space, including a fully finished basement and two laundry rooms. The house is white and bright thanks in large part to a skylight that shines down onto the kitchen. The massive kitchen is designed for entertaining - you could fit a boatload around that marble island - and the front room comes with an entire wall of built-in shelves. The long backyard with raised deck is pretty great, but the rooftop "sky garden" is even better. The roof deck does face the street, but at this height privacy shouldn't be an issue.

66 St. Germain AvenueGOOD FOR

Someone who wants a house that has the look of a condo in the sky but is planted firmly on the ground. Anyone who doesn't mind living in a place that stands out from the other houses on the street. If you're looking for high-end finishings, high ceilings, and a high spot to sit above the neighbourhood.

66 St. Germain AvenueMOVE ON IF

If the floor-to-ceiling windows make you feel a little uncomfortable, this probably isn't the right house for you. Although the dual laundry rooms are designed for convenience, some might still find the glass railings, huge backyard and sparkling bathrooms a little too high maintenance.

Great house and great neighbourhood, but, sorry, St. Germain is nowhere near Lawrence Park. Only in the minds of real estate agents.

I LOVE it!!! Beautifully done, light and airy, I'd buy it in a minute (if we were in the market that is)....

Gorgeous architecture, awful interior design choices!

Amen, should have let the architect pick furniture instead of hiring an interior designer from CB2. That bedroom is offensive.

Is that the bunny ranch? Do you have to call ahead?
