81 Bywood Drive

House of the week: 81 Bywood Drive

81 Bywood Drive backs onto Islington Golf Course, offering sweeping views of the neighbouring green space and the quiet street on which it's located. Large windows bring tons of light into the open concept home, which has a modern sensibility without it feeling particularly minimalist. And despite the fact that it's a new home, the large lot features plenty of mature trees, which provide privacy and the sense that you're not living in a new subdivision -- ah, the perks of having over two and a half million to spend on a house.

The first floor is ideal for entertaining. The spacious living room, kitchen and dining room have great flow without feeling like the first floor is just one anonymous space. Speaking of space, this house has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. That's not mansion-like, but the master bedroom is bigger than most bachelor pads, so no one will complain of being cramped.

GOOD FOR

Someone who wants a brand new home with all the bells and whistles. This house has everything you could wish for in a modern space - heated floors, walk-in closets, wiring for audio/media, elevators. The design is also contemporary, if not cutting edge. Sometimes understated is good.

MOVE ON IF

You would rather not be car dependent. The golf course adjacent, suburban location mean this house has a large yard, great landscaping, and a lots of space. It also means it has a walk score of 42. If you're an urbanite at heart and love walking for your groceries or down to your local for a beer, this isn't the place for you.
