House of the week: 103 Glengrove Avenue

103 Glengrove Avenue is a modern four bedroom with a private elevator and a professionally landscaped backyard in the Lawrence Park neighbourhood. With an asking of $2,749,000, the three-level glass house attracts wealthier buyers in the affluent area near Avenue Road, enticing them with larger lot sizes, community green space and good schools.

If you don't want to live right downtown or out in the boonies, this property might be a good compromise. It's close to transit, an easy commute downtown, and walkable to the shops along Yonge Street.

The interior spans 3,200 square feet, and features a contemporary and minimalist design with expansive walls for colourful art. The transparent floor-to-ceiling back offers all-day sun exposure and a scenic view of the yard.

Upstairs, there's a second family room, a large master bedroom with a glass wall and custom wood panelling, a marble ensuite and the quintessential urban deck. The wood staircase is appealing for those who dislike floating stairs, as is the private elevator up to the third floor.

GOOD FOR

A home that ages with you. It's a great house and location for a growing family with ample space, a large backyard and a possibly nanny suite downstairs (or perhaps a basement apartment for the teenager). The private elevator comes in handy as the kids grow and stairs become daunting.

MOVE ON IF

You don't like nosey neighbours peering into your home. Privacy is somewhat sacrificed in the design of this space. The glass back offers panoramic views for both homeowner and the rows of neighbouring properties that overlook the backyard. Invest in custom shades, even if it means losing that south-facing natural light.
