154 Albany Avenue Toronto

House of the week: 154 Albany Avenue

The Annex is know for its stately Victorian-era homes far more than contemporary architectural marvels, but this recently listed house on Albany is a noteworthy exception. Designed in collaboration with architect Luc Bouliane, it's a stunning property that makes its mark in a sea of older homes.

154 Albaby Avenue TorontoListed at $2.5 million, the three bedroom detached house has a number of features to match its hyper modern exterior, including light switches and temperature controls that can be adjusted using an iPad.

154 Albaby Avenue TorontoWhile the exterior suggests the possibility of a minimalist space, that's not really the idea here. The design is clean, but there's plenty of wood and clever lighting fixtures to ensure that rooms feel warm and inviting.
