39 Cameron Avenue Toronto

House of the week: 39 Cameron Avenue

It's difficult to miss the long narrow bridge at the entrance way of 39 Cameron Avenue. The newly built three-storey house listed for $1 million might be the gossip of the neighbourhood with its extended bridge, no catwalk, leading up to the front door.

The modern dwelling near Eglinton West and Caledonia Road was, no doubt, a challenging one for the architect who was limited by constraints of the awkward lot size. The property is quite large (20 x 237 feet), but the house was built on a steep hill and a large retaining wall was mandatory between the house and its neighbouring lot.

The house is "insane," says the realtor of the home's unique bridge and distinct interior features. With an open concept layout and minimalist design, the four bedroom has multiple walkouts and plenty of natural light. 10 foot ceilings, a main floor kitchen with scores of cupboard space and a second kitchen in the basement.

The Keelesdale-Eglinton West area is more affordable for first-time buyers (this house excluded), who desire larger properties, driveways and a backyard. Build a similar house in downtown Toronto and like it or not, you'll be paying closer to $2 million.

GOOD FOR

Space. At over 3,000 square feet, you won't have to worry about bumping into the rest of the family. Claim a floor as your own or hide out in the massive finished basement.

MOVE ON IF

There's no real backyard. The newly built addition and large garage takes up much of the backyard space with only a small garden and pathway. It's not ideal for hosting a summertime barbecue.
