House of the week: 688 Woburn Avenue
688 Woburn Avenue is a newly built modern dwelling in the Bedford Park neighbourhood, on the market for $2,858,000. While it's not the coolest house on the block, the chic four bedroom scores major points for its unique selling features. There is a back-up generator, a wireless thermostat, a snow-melting system and a dog bathroom.
With six bathrooms, perhaps Sparky has his own private potty area, instead of just utilizing the backyard like all the other neighbourhood pups. Sorry, no bathroom photos are posted.
On a street of knock-downs, the Woburn property fits right in with its boxy grey facade and interior eye candy. The entrance way showcases a fake stone wall, leading to an open concept walnut living room and fireplace. The kitchen is like one big red lollypop with its bright cherry backsplash, glossy finishings and carefully staged matching decor.
The second floor master features a fireplace, more walnut finishes, his-and-hers closets and an ensuite with a freestanding tub. Will the dog potty increase the value of the property? Not likely, but take a look inside anyways.
A power outage. A back-up generator would prove useful as Toronto Hydro becomes less and less reliable. This is a good selling feature when all your neighbours are in the dark.
MOVE ON IF
You want a landscaped backyard. For $2.8M, you might expect a manicured yard, but all you're really getting is a nice deck and a place to barbecue.
