House of the week: 17 Berryman Street
17 Berryman Street is a sleek, modern house in the ritzy Yorkville neighbourhood, on the market for $3,395,000. The three bedroom dwelling (with five bathrooms) was built in 1888 and the pre-renovation photos aren't pretty for Hazelton standards. The designated heritage property sold quickly (in just nine days) for $1,059,000, and two years later, it was gutted and back on the market.
Berryman Street has the cool factor with a handful of modern re-builds in the area, and no one bats their pretty eyelash extension at the price.
Right next door is the Barton Myers residence, built and owned by the architect, with a central courtyard, a translucent fiberglass roof and green house. 17 Berryman comes with its own luxuries like a floating wine cellar, two rooftop decks and bedrooms, each with their own ensuite. There's an elevator and the backyard boasts a hot tub, deck and waterfall.
The neighbourhood remains a hub of activity, especially with the redevelopment of the Hazelton Lanes shopping centre, now re-branded as "Yorkville Village." The housing market in this "Village" is not popping anytime soon.
You won't need to mow or shovel. With no driveway and a backyard with artificial grass, it's a low maintenance, move-in ready house. Plus, the home was once owned by Canadian poet, Jean Jay Macpherson----a fun conversation piece at your next dinner party.
MOVE ON IF
You need parking. There is no parking for this $3 million property, although parking alternatives are available, according to the realtor. Even with a high walk score of 99 and transit nearby, (almost) everyone in Yorkville still owns a car. Anyways, why not? Whole Foods has free parking with purchase and a VIP underground car wash.
