House of the week: 6A Brockton Avenue
This super-modern home at 6A Brockton Avenue is back on the market after making the rounds roughly four years ago. Noteworthy as the residence of well-known interior designer Elaine Cecconi, the house has now been re-listed at the same asking price as it was before -- $2,250,000 -- after initially being posted at $2,400,000. Given the rise of Brockton Village, the flat-lined asking price is probably worth a raised eyebrow.
It's surprising because there's not much to dislike here. While the house is listed well above what neighbouring properties go for, it's obviously unique to the neighbourhood and a contemporary design lover's wet dream. Perhaps the whole all-white thing bothers some people, but it's not without a touch of class.
Address: 6A Brockton Avenue
Lot Size: 44x90
Walk Score: 88
Fans of contemporary design, duh. This is also a great home on account of its walkability (Walk Score of 88) and its proximity to multiple neighbourhoods with enviable restaurant and bar scenes. Brockton and Dundas doesn't feel like the heart of it all, but it most certainly feels close to everything. That's actually a really nice combination.
MOVE ON IF
This would probably not be a great place for a burgeoning family though, unless the plan was to just bleach the place a couple times a year to get ride of the all the stains that would accrue. If you're a clumsy wine drinker, this place is also probably not a great fit -- but if vodka is your drink, buy away!
