House of the week: 72 Belvedere Boulevard
72 Belvedere Boulevard is a recently built home in the Kingsway that exudes a subtle modern classiness. In its former iteration, the house was a nice if unremarkable structure typically of the post-war building boom in Etobicoke. A complete rebuild has turned the property into a stunning open space home, complete with many of the amenities that you'd expect of a $2.5 million listing - you know, the wine cellar, integrated surround sound, and a butler's pantry (to name only a few).
The area won't appeal to everyone - especially at the asking price - but with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, a family looking for a hyper-contemporary home with lots of indoor and outdoor space that's not so far removed from the life of the city might be seduced by the gorgeous space.
A well to do family looking to avoid the hustle and bustle of downtown living. Someone who's always wanted to be featured in the style and decor section of a magazine. And, of course, residents who do not want to walk more than a few feet to access a bathroom at any given time - this is key.
MOVE ON IF
Move on if you're looking for more significant living and lounging space. For all the size of this home, the main level is dominated by the kitchen and dining room, something that you might not expect in a semi-suburban home at this asking price. You might also take a pass if you expect that $2.5 million will get you into a more chi chi neighbourhood.
