House of the week: 210 Poplar Plains Road

210 Poplar Plains Road returns to the market as the gutted, now architecturally stunning property in the affluent South Hill neighbourhood.

In its former iteration, the home was a dilapidated rooming house (here are the frightening before photos), and stuck out like a sore thumb on this tree-lined street, just south of St. Clair near Casa Loma.

Asking $5,188,000, the house has been bouncing around the market, the owners most recently increasing the price. While the costs might scare off potential buyers, the architect-designed interior is quite nice, especially if you're charmed by outdoors waterfalls and a private walkout on every level.

The layout is simple, open and airy. There's plenty of natural light with expansive windows, skylights, and two outdoor fountains --one by the front door and another in the backyard. Multiple fireplaces, a soaker tub on (almost) every floor and a finished basement that doubles as a home theatre, gym, games rooms, and office.

GOOD FOR

A family seeking a suburban dwelling close to the city. South Hill is a good balance of downtown living on a large midtown-sized lot. In this neighbourhood, you get a long private driveway big enough for eight cars, garage and a pool-worthy backyard.

MOVE ON IF

If you've always dreamed of living in a grand Victorian or classic Tudor-style house. This is not the property for you. While the original home was built in the 1900s, its historical character was thrown out the window (literally), replaced by modern glass walls and a really stunning fireplace in the bathroom.
