House of the week: 2534 St. Clair Avenue East

This sleek four-bedroom near St. Clair East and O'Connor is listed for almost $1.7 million. The East York property has been on the market for awhile, closer to $1.8 million, before recently lowering the price. In an area flanked by post-war bungalows and swimming pool-worthy yards, the asking isn't surprising since T.O. ranks the 12th most expensive places to live worldwide.

No doubt, the chic and minimalist rebuild is not your average house. Flaunting top-of-the-line appliances and designer features like the transparent wine cellar next to the kitchen, there's a room for almost everyone. A basement sauna is an added bonus, along with a four-car garage with heated floors and a hoist, dubbed by the realtor as the "total man cave."

At over 3,000 square feet, space is not an issue for the wide two-level property. The backyard overlooking the Taylor Creek Ravine features a cedar deck, cabana, putting green and inground swimming pool. While the neighbourhood walk score is lower than in the city, transit is nearby and there's enough green space to make it feel like its own suburb.

GOOD FOR

Golfers. Golf pros will love this feature -- a putting green right in the backyard. Plus, there's surprisingly little upkeep in this property. The front yard is covered in AstroTurf so you'll never have to mow and heated outdoor floors will help with the winter snow shovelling blahs.

MOVE ON IF

You detest innovative house gadgets. This Jetsons-approved dwelling promises to be the property of the future with fingerprint entry, a Smart Home System, a pool with regulated temperature controlled by your Smart Phone and an automatic cover that's apparently safe for kids to stand on (seriously).
