219 Roe Avenue

House of the Week: 219 Roe Avenue

Located on a quiet cul de sac in Toronto's near Avenue and Wilson, this ultra-contemporary, stylish 4-bedroom home is the first constructed by Studio Architectonic Inc., a new design firm bent on creating sustainable, contemporary homes for the future. Combining the ease and cost-efficiency of pre-fabricated homes with unique design customization, 219 Roe Avenue is like the artificial intelligence of real estate.

Heated floors, electronic window fixtures and a Smart Home Automation system allow full control over lighting, entertainment systems, heating/air conditioning and the like. Perhaps 2001: A Space Oddyssey wasn't too far off in its predictions of the not-so-distant future...let's just hope we don't have Hal 2.0 on our hands.

GOOD FOR:

Slick suburban hipsters, environment-enthusiasts, exhibitionists (a lot of glass walls) and science fiction fans. This residence might also be attractive to those who like to use the word "postmodern" a lot.

MOVE ON IF:

You're offended by the adage of "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones." Or, you know, if you like to throw stones...
