House of the week: 4 Lennox Street
This newly listed property on Lennox Street, just east of Bathurst and Bloor, is difficult to miss with its weathering western red cedar exterior that evokes the feeling of a Scandinavian chalet. It's a unique property, unlike any other, and perhaps across the city. There are the traditional Victorian semis along Lippincott Street and a handful of renovated modern glass houses a street over, but none that use the combination of wood and and aluminum exterior. You'll either love it or hate it.
Inside is the big reveal. The clever architectural design takes advantage of a small lot size (only 30 x 50 feet), with an integrated carport and small backyard. The carport is particularly distinguished, featuring an intricate laser cut steel design.
The house itself is a modern three bedroom that is anything but square with a pitched roof, soaring ceilings and an impressive staircase nestled into the front living space. Being the designer's own home, there's a high attention to detail with expensive fixtures and a Bulthaup kitchen.
The asking price? 4 Lennox St. is listed for $1,749,000.
Neighbourhood amenities. Bloor Street between Bathurst and Spadina has almost everything in walking distance, especially if you like all-you-can-eat sushi and froyo. And while Honest Ed's might not be there too much longer, you can expect significant retail revitalization to the west of Bathurst in the next half decade.
MOVE ON IF
You hate teenagers. Central Tech High School is directly across the street. Expect to see a plethora of fun-loving, pimple-faced adolescents walking past the property. There's always something happening at the school whether it's a big budget movie shoot or a loud student protest.
Worth the asking price? Have your say in the comments.
