House of the week: 115 Sylvan Avenue
You can't get a much better location for a home than on the shores of Lake Ontario, situated atop the Scarborough Bluffs. 115 Sylvan Avenue, listed at $2,899,000, is the perfect retreat from downtown Toronto, even as the city is still very much accessible.
This home has the appearance of a penthouse on the inside, but with the square footage and lot of a mansion. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide a stunning view of Lake Ontario, with access from nearly every room. The open balcony in the centre of the living area overlooks the lower level and opens up the space, adding a loft-like feel to this family home.
If the views and endless light don't cut it, the master bedroom may. The ultra-modern ensuite with hard lines and huge windows will make you feel as though you're at a spa. With a private balcony overlooking the backyard and the lake, there's really not much need to go to a resort.
Those looking to entertain, enjoy nature and relax at home. With its stunning landscape and open concept living area (complete with a games room - with a view), this is the place to hunker down. Who wants to go to a crowded restaurant when you could bring the party to you?
MOVE ON IF
Your idea of city living is in the thick of downtown, free of a car, and dependent on cabs and TTC. This abode is nestled well into the east end, and transit isn't the most accessible.
Would you buy this four bedroom Scarborough home if you had the dough? Let us know in the comments.
