156 Roslin Avenue

House of the week: 156 Roslin Avenue

The detached two-storey at 156 Roslin Avenue is a former bungalow transformed into a modern glass box situated on a corner lot near Yonge and Lawrence. The house, priced at $1,966,600, is everything you'd expect from a multi-million dollar architect designed rebuild.

Open, airy and glowing with natural light, the space is glossier than a magazine cover, in a good way. The main floor flows from the front living room to the back sitting area, lit up by LED lights and a glass staircase. The gas fireplace and heated floors on the main and lower levels are a nice feature and will add warmth when the cold weather hits.

For those who entertain, the basement is a main sitting (or dancing) area. There's a bright red full-sized wet bar, drink fridge and bar stools. Add a disco ball and you're set. If you don't like visitors, hide away in the wraparound second floor walkout attached to the master bedroom.

Wanless Park is one of Toronto's affluent communities with an enclave of upscale properties and nearby green space and private tennis courts. Agree or disagree, this posh neighbourhood is the geographic centre of Toronto, according to Google and a map librarian at the University of Toronto.

GOOD FOR

Someone who doesn't want to renovate. It's move-in ready with upgraded bells and whistles. There's also an attached garage that can be accessed through the home---a rare feature if you live midtown or unheard of downtown. The garage will prove useful for avoiding those pesky nighttime raccoons.

MOVE ON IF

You need more privacy. The floor-to-ceiling windows facing the street act as a transparent wall but without a fence, it's not conducive for those who like privacy or wish to parade around in the nude. Custom blinds are available but will limit the sun exposure and all that natural light. Still, it's your house, do as you please.
