House of the Week: 358 Ontario Street

Cabbagetown isn't all tiny Victorian houses. There are also modern, renovated gems, like this one at 358 Ontario Street. If you're looking for something bright, open, and airy, this is the spot for you. The vaulted ceilings are the key to this home's success. The large windows bring tons of light into the open, expansive space, and the design is quirky enough to make the future home owner feel like they're an interesting person.

But what about day to day living? The master bedroom is a highlight of the home, too. The spa ensuite makes me jealous. The rest of the rooms may look a bit sterile right now, with their white and grey walls, but use your imagination to add colour and character and this could be a warm retreat.

GOOD FOR:

People looking for a unique, contemporary home that's still livable. Who says a modern home needs to be all sharp edges and stainless steel? The vaulted ceilings and large windows make the space feel airy and full of sunshine. I wouldn't call it cozy, but it's warm and inviting with plenty of room for customization.

MOVE ON IF

You're not OK with a location that's slightly rougher around the edges. Cabbagetown is an extremely desirable neighbourhood with its proximity to Riverdale Park, quaint Victorian homes, and bustling shops along Parliament Street, but the transit access isn't as good as, say, the Annex, and surrounding neighbourhoods are not as yuppie centric as some potential home owners might like -- hard to say if that's actually a bad thing, though.
