House of the week: 163 Macpherson Avenue

This is what $2.4 million looks like at Avenue Road and Dupont. 163 Macpherson Avenue is a renovated semi featuring three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a cozy landscaped backyard and a carport in the laneway for two car parking.

The multi-million dollar property is typical of the neighbourhood. Around the corner from Yorkville and the upscale retailers that dot Avenue Road, this pricey residential pocket is premium real estate. The houses, especially on this street, have narrow lot sizes (this property is 18 feet wide), and front pad parking is a rarity.

Toronto firm Studio Pyramid redesigned the 2,500 square foot space to include an open layout flowing with natural light, and an abundance of outdoor space. The meticulously designed home offers a few clever selling features. The floating staircase is mounted, allowing for additional space on the main level and the chalkboard wall in the basement makes for a great office or playroom.

GOOD FOR

The king of the throne. The modern abode boasts five bathrooms, and each bedroom features its own private ensuite. The master ensuite is pure decadence, that is, if you have a fondness for deep soaker tubs, glass showers and overhanging chandeliers.

MOVE ON IF

You want a driveway and VIP parking. A $2.4 million semi in the city offers select luxuries; unfortunately unlimited property space isn't one of them. The carport, accessed in the laneway, fits two cars and street parking in the area is limited. Better yet, park the vehicle and take transit in this highly walkable 'hood.
