House of the Week: 23 Birchmount Road

23 Birchmount Rd is an oversized, countrified Cliffside home that looks good in the winter and is bound to have even more curb appeal once the snow melts. Located on a quiet street close to the Scarborough Bluffs, the house features a new flagstone driveway, custom-built in-ground pool and two glassed-in sunrooms. Correction: one sunroom and one solarium. Still, though, that's a lot of natural light.

The interior has been recently upgraded with a new kitchen, new bathrooms and fresh hardwood floors throughout. This house is designed with a brood in mind: there's plenty of storage, lots of yard and space to park four cars. You can't really go wrong with a private home theatre, either. This basement movie pit includes a 102" screen, Marantz surround sound speakers and six leather recliners.

GOOD FOR

A family looking for a woodsy setting, renovated finishes and some special features. The overall design of the house is fairly simple and traditional, but it wouldn't be hard to put a personalized stamp on this space.

MOVE ON IF

Despite its enviable proximity to the lake, some might find the location of this house remote. If you're looking for true Toronto, this might be a touch too east side for your taste. Take note of the Walk Score of 67: there aren't many stores or restaurants within walking distance, and TTC riders will have to rely on buses. Still, with this home theatre and this pool, do you even need to leave?
