336 Melrose Toronto

House of the week: 336 Melrose Avenue

336 Melrose Avenue could be a California dream home, that is, if you overlook the icicles hanging off the front and the snow-covered backyard. Currently listed for $2,249,000, the sweet former bungalow near Avenue and Lawrence has been transformed into a sophisticated modern abode with four plus bedrooms and five bathrooms.

The exterior of the home is a teaser, tempting potential buyers and curious passerby's with its colourful stucco facade. Inside, it's a "jaw-dropping architectural masterpiece," (reads the brokerbabble), a claim that might be debated among readers. The interior is both enticing and confusing--a mishmash of colours, textures, pot lights and mahogany trim, trying to exist as one.

The main floor is open concept with high ceilings, a fire place, and a kitchen with a decorative wild grass inspired wrought iron screen. The second and third floors feature a master bedroom with a large walk-in closet, freestanding bathtub with a skylight and a TV room with an outdoor patio.

GOOD FOR

A large private backyard. Although it's difficult to see in the winter, the backyard is landscaped with a high fence and room to expand.

MOVE ON IF

You hate stairs. The three-storey house has staircases galore, spread over five levels. Possibly troublesome for anyone with knee problems or young children.
