House of the week: 28 Wembley Road
This $2.7 million modern home sits on a corner lot at 28 Wembley Road near Bathurst and Eglinton. The three bedroom was gutted to the studs and later rebuilt in collaboration with the owner-designer who has a taste for art and luxury handbags (see massive walk-in closet).
The house flows with designer finishes, light fixtures, and multiple spaces to entertain. There are at least two living rooms on the main floor alone, and with the cozy fireplaces and heated floors, there's no need to wear slippers all winter long.
The back living space maximizes natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows, a second floor cut-out and a glassed-in staircase. Did I mention there's a private elevator? Located in the main foyer, the elevator is another showpiece and very convenient if you want to make a quick getaway upstairs.
It's a good time to move to this Forest Hill neighbourhood. There's additional transit coming to the Eglinton West corridor (finally), and it's a quick drive to Allen Road and the 401. The upcoming LRT should make the commuting almost everywhere quicker and faster.
His and her. At 3,700 square feet, space is not an issue in this house. The walk-in closet is perfect for those who have a shoe (or clothing) fetish and the ensuite features his-and-her double sinks on opposite sides of the bathroom. You'll never bump into your spouse, unless you want to.
MOVE ON IF
You hate mowing the lawn. This suburban-style dwelling has an extended backyard with more grass than a house in the 905. In its current form, the new owners will need to invest in a lawn mower and perhaps shrubs, plants and a pergola to jazz up the green space.
