House of the week: 61 Atlas Avenue
61 Atlas Avenue is a three bedroom, four bathroom detached house, just north of St. Clair West. Listed at $1,460,000, the newly renovated dwelling is two-and-a-half storeys and features an oversized back terrace and a funky custom staircase.
The footprint is wide and the layout is quite spacious, spanning 2,000 square feet. Like most sleek renos, the fixtures and materials are brand new. The main level showcases a marble fireplace, a standout wood, metal and glass staircase and a contemporary pot lit kitchen.
The second floor boasts a traditional floor plan - hardwood floors, a master and walk-in closet and ensuite. The steep climb to the loft-style third level adds drama to this otherwise contemporary space, and could serve as an office or better yet, the Netflix binge-watching playroom.
A great neighbourhood. There's plenty to love about this community-oriented area, catering to a generation of younger families with schools, playgrounds and accessible transit in walking distance. A ton of restaurants line the streets and the nearby Wychwood Barns has a great doggie park and weekend farmers' market.
MOVE ON IF
You're wary of the flip. The old property, almost unrecognizable from its present-day makeover, was gutted and renovated only a couple of years ago. Back then, the house was on the market for just $649,000, and sold for $710K. In today's soaring housing market where the average detached is fetching over $1.2 million, that would be a steal.
