87 Otonabee Avenue Toronto

House of the week: 87 Otonabee Avenue

In Toronto's north end, $2.5 million buys you a modern two-storey with four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a long driveway and attached garage. Located at 87 Otonabee Avenue near Yonge and Steeles, the property was rebuilt in 2015 by Upside Developments and architect firm Linebox Studios.

A space for both work and play, the house, situated on a corner lot, was designed with an abundance of natural light and a transparent staircase that acts as a partition and showpiece. A few features worth noting include a dual-sided fireplace and extensive wine fridge in the kitchen, and a spacious laundry room located on the upper level, not hidden away in the basement.

At 3,300 square feet, those living in a narrow row house might be salivating at the space. The North York location isn't for everyone, but living in the 'burbs has its benefits. Bigger lot sizes, a larger backyard (sometimes a pool), and street parking is readily available for guests.

GOOD FOR

A mudroom. You don't get a mudroom when you live downtown. The suburban-style home offers a separate place to store those muddy shoes and a large front closest that proves useful when the snow hits.

MOVE ON IF

You want ultimate walkability. While you're close to Centrepoint Mall and Finch subway station isn't too far, you won't enjoy the same amenities as you would in, say, the Annex. But that's the compromise you make for a big and beautiful modern space.
