House of the week: 233 Snowdon Avenue

Posted by Staff / May 13, 2014

233 Snowdon Avenue TorontoThis Teddington Park home located at 233 Snowdon Avenue is a great example of contemporary design. An open concept space with floor to ceiling windows, the interior is flooded with light in every room. Even the exterior feels open and inviting. The house incorporates a front lounge where you can sit and wait for the kids to come home, enjoy a glass of wine, or spy on the neighbourhood casually. No one will suspect a thing!

The contemporary architecture doesn't feel so out of place, though. While the neighbourhood is full of pre-war houses manicured to a tee, there are more and more new designs popping up. The highly sought after location doesn't do you any favours with the price, however. Listed at $2.1 Million, this one will do some damage to your bank account (but for the area it's not exactly outrageous). This ain't for the first time buyer, though (unless your family is filthy rich).

233 Snowdon Avenue TorontoGOOD FOR

Families looking for a perfect balance of the urban and suburban. With four bedrooms, there's plenty of room for a kids' rec room, while still maintaining private space for the adults. You've got a quiet street, but you're still only a short walk from the amenities of Yonge. Win-Win. That's what you'd expect for the neighbourhood and price.

233 Snowdon Avenue TorontoMOVE ON IF

You're looking for a little more hustle and bustle. Though this house isn't located too far from the subway, it's not exactly a hop, skip and a jump from downtown. And the surrounding restaurants and businesses cater more to a wealthy family than someone interested in hitting the town. But hey, if you happen belong to the Rosedale Golf Club, you can always swing by the clubhouse for a drink. You just have to get off the wait-list first.

Beautiful home. Love all the details in wood, steel, trims and landscape nuances.
Rex / May 13, 2014 at 09:07 am
Stunning. And that furniture!
Bob / May 13, 2014 at 09:26 am

Definitely one of the best houses ever featured on here.
Bobo / May 13, 2014 at 11:20 am
Really nice, but I'm not loving the predominately oatmeal colour palette in the living area (with a splash of off-putting burnt orange nearby). Easily remedied though - the space has great potential, if the furniture and palette are updated to match they sophistication of the architecture.

Great design inside and out. Still though, $2M+ and no garage :(

"Great design inside and out. Still though, $2M+ and no garage :( " Good point.

How old is this house?
Laura / May 13, 2014 at 01:39 pm
Beauty! Seems like a great price too.

Nice house. Great mix of warmth (wood, furniture) and modern architecture (concrete) styling. Like a previous posted said, $2,1 mil and no garage is definitely a sore point. I wouldn't want to expose my Porsche, Mercedes, Tesla, and BMW to the elements and burglars/vandals ;)

Calling Snowdon Teddington Park is like calling Woodbine and Danforth the "Beaches,"
Rick / May 13, 2014 at 04:47 pm
Beauty Home....But 2 mil gets you a mansion on a huge lot in Mineola West (Mississauga)and closer to better schools.

And dont give me that "But its mississauga...blah, blah, blah" garbage. Only the uninformed and closed minded Torontonidolts would say such a thing. Mississauga is a beautiful place to live and just as affluent as some places in Toronto.

You lost me with the words Mississauga and beautiful in the same sentence. Perhaps beautiful to people who think McMansions are attractive, but those opinions don't count, so it's moot.

There's more to a location than affluence. Mississauga can keep its tacky gated mansion subdivisions and meandering cul-de-sacs.

Sorry, Woodbine and Danforth is the 'Upper Beaches'... whatev
John / May 14, 2014 at 09:46 am
LOL Mississauga, that's a good one....
Mike / May 14, 2014 at 10:02 am
The kitchen is amazing. My wife would love it if she learned how to cook.
Mike replying to a comment from John / May 14, 2014 at 10:11 am
I lived there for 3 years before moving back to TO. Its not that bad if you have a family.
Skye / May 14, 2014 at 10:30 am
Ooooooh, this is just beautiful. Yes, please!
Rick replying to a comment from Rick / May 14, 2014 at 10:32 am
Rick, not everyone cares about the size of the house over everything else. Other people may care about neighbourhood, family being close, work being close, distance to downtown/museums/the 401, etc...I'd imagine in every conceivable way besides perhaps lot and house size, north Toronto beats south Mississauga every time.

If you can buy a mansion in Mississauga for 2 million, think what you could buy in Sudbury! WOW!!!! lets all move there.
milo / May 14, 2014 at 04:41 pm
wow - what a beautiful home.

and i can't believe one of that maggots here posted you should consider living in scummy mississauga

wtf - there's a reason it's known as scummy mississauga.
Jeff Lai / May 14, 2014 at 04:42 pm
LOL at Mississauga.

The best thing I did was leaving that shithole the moment I finished highschool and never looked back.
Jeff Lai / May 14, 2014 at 04:44 pm
Rick -- is Hazel your mother?

No other reason you would want to try and sell the 905 otherwise.
