House of the week: 233 Snowdon Avenue
This 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).
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.
MOVE 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.
