House of the week: 395 Montrose Avenue
This contemporary three bedroom at 395 Montrose Avenue comes to market for $1,349,000. Rebuilt six years ago, the detached property north of Harbord Street, features a landscaped front yard and a multifaceted wood and stucco exterior.
The open main floor, almost resembling an urban cottage, is warm and inviting with a steel fireplace and a log wood staircase. There's also plenty of outdoor space with a second floor patio, a custom deck in the back, looking onto Bickford Park.
There are fewer real estate listings these days, and the spring being the best time to sell. Still, the neighbourhood is very desirable for young families and also a hot housing pocket for urban dwellers seeking a quiet enclave of semi or detached houses.
Pet owners. With outdoor space at a premium in the city, it's handy to have Bickford Park, a dog-friendly space to play and meet your neighbours. In the winter, the park offers one of the best tobogganing hills in the city.
MOVE ON IF
Fans of modern architecture will debate this one. Do you love it or hate it? The exterior is not for everyone, along with a mixed blend on the inside. A wood staircase and railing, metal framing, glossy fireplace and tiling -- the home is a conversation piece.
