House of the week: 40 Nursewood Road
40 Nursewood Road is a bright and cheery home just steps from the Beach. As nice as the outdoor space is, the exterior finds its equal in the interior. The open-concept living and dining rooms bring tons of light into the house, and if you can get past the strange choice of tile in the foyer, you'll find beautiful hard wood floors throughout. And, hey, maybe that foyer is the perfect place for the oriental rug you've always dreamed of, anyway.
Other features include a wood burning fire place and a lower level that walks out into a beautiful backyard. Oh, and did I mention it also currently includes a sauna? Though excluded from the listed sale, it is up for negotiation. I say a home sauna might just be worth a few extra bucks on this $1.2 million home. What could be more perfect after a stroll or dip at the beach?

Beach enthusiasts. Art Deco and Michael Ondaatje fans. In addition to being located steps from the beach, this house is also located down the street from the iconic R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant, an ever popular spot during Open Doors Toronto. You might recognize the beautiful Art Deco building from its description in Michael Ondaatje's novel In the Skin of a Lion. A highly recommended read if you're looking at moving in.
MOVE ON IF
The juxtaposition of styles in this home isn't for you. Open concept, hard wood floors, tiled foyer, modern kitchen, glass brick windows... it's hard to place a style for this house. On the one hand it's all cozy wood burning fire places and built-in book shelves. On the other, it's an open concept feel and sharp corners. It will take a creative mind to tie this place together cohesively. But maybe that's you!
Note: This house has just been taken off the market. Info on the final sale price has yet to be announced.
