House of the week: 175 Haddington Avenue
175 Haddington Avenue is a newly built four bedroom on the market for $3,300,000. It's a designer home with an eye-popping angular glass facade and a deep yard worthy of an outdoor pool and hot tub. Located just off of Avenue Road south of the 401, the 3,500 square foot space utilizes eco-conscious materials and a green roof with solar panels.
The main floor has a few standout features. First, the floating fishbone staircase is both funky and disorienting, and the fire-engine red kitchen framed by a glass garage door adds pizzazz to what could have been a bland cookie-cutter interior.
Like other properties in North Toronto, the lot is spacious at 44 x 130 feet. Still, real estate doesn't come cheap closer to the 'burbs. Houses are selling well over the million dollar mark and anything else is a frightening fixer-upper or knock-down.
GOOD FORA large family. The Bedford Park neighbourhood is family-friendly with a school and playground across the street. With four plus bedrooms, there's plenty of room to fill the home with children and/or feline pets.
MOVE ON IF
You want a quaint post-war bungalow. There are still a handful of smaller homes lining the street but not for long -- most properties have been rebuilt into monster houses, attached to multi-million dollar price tags.
