House of the week: 179 Old Yonge Street
179 Old Yonge Street is in the private enclave of Hogg's Hollow, one of the most affluent 'hoods in the city's north-end. The five bedroom, eight bathroom house was completely rebuilt this past winter, revived with a new modern design and a flair for innovative building materials.
No doubt this upscale neighbourhood is a pricey one with private botanical gardens, the historic Miller Tavern at the bottom of the hill, and homes lined with outdoor swimming pools, backyard tennis courts and cedar decks.
This multi-room property is not the fanciest on the block and slightly more intimate at 5,300 square feet.
With a new build, you can construct almost anything you'd want. The architect (and its owners) opted for simplicity; a space defining layout and clean lines. There's nothing too gutsy about the overall design--unless you want to throw in some bold colours or a gold-plated sculpture -- you can really make this house your own.
Heated floor, stilettos and a massive walk-in closest. This sprawling layout was made for dancing around in high heels or barefoot, thanks to heated floors on the main and second levels.
MOVE ON IF
You need a fully landscaped backyard. Where's the infinity swimming pool and underwater stereo? Where's the tennis court, outdoor fire pit and waterfall? In this upscale neighbourhood, one would expect a lush landscaped yard with all the trimmings.
