House of the week: 182 Wanless Avenue

182 Wanless Avenue is a slick modern home set against a neighbourhood filled predominantly with early 20th century brick houses. It sticks out on the street, but in a good way given its architectural details and generally solid design. Wanless Park is filled with pricey homes, but this one comes in a bit above average at $2,870,000 mostly on account of the new build.

This is an example of a home that touts its contemporary design but never feels particularly minimal. Even with only modest staging, it's easy to discern how livable the space is. The family room arises out of the kitchen, which suggests that the area at the back of the first floor is meant to be the hub of daily activity, while the front rooms are reserved for entertaining.

As you might expect from a recent build, there's smart home automation as well as a mobile monitoring system, technological perks that might prove valuable to parents with young kids. Better than that, the house has been intelligently designed, with features like a finished lower level that gets lots of light thanks to a walk-out exit to the backyard firepit and hot tub. Moreover, every bedroom has direct access to a bathroom, a little design touch that increases livability.

GOOD FOR

A wealthy design-oriented family who wants to live in Toronto but isn't enamoured with downtown. Wanless Park is close enough to retail and restaurants on Yonge St. but feels nicely secluded.

MOVE ON IF

You desire a more walkable neighbourhood. This isn't the type of neighbourhood where you can stroll to get your groceries, nor are the transit options that great (the 52 Lawrence bus isn't frequent).
