House of the week: 154 The Kingsway
Fans of contemporary home design will likely swoon over this recently listed property at 154 The Kingsway. It's one of those houses that has an understated exterior but is a bit of show stopper once you get inside.
The most obvious attribute of the main floor is its open layout, which makes the place seem huge when you first enter, even as each space is well delineated thanks to bump outs along the right wall.
Cecconi Simone is responsible for the interior design, which also features novel light fixtures, a envy-worthy kitchen, and a slick en suite. In fact, all four bedrooms have their own washroom, which is a nice touch you don't typically find in older homes.
Unsurprisingly, the list price exceeds $3 million. With a finished walk-out basement, there's a lot of living space on offer here. While the west end neighbourhood won't attract downtown prices, a new build like this one will be in hot demand in today's market.
A family that likes to entertain. The main level can accommodate a sizeable gathering with its open layout. This would also be ideal for people who don't believe in having to walk more than a few feet to get to a washroom.
You don't drive. For all of The Kingsway's charms (it really is a pretty street), its transit access isn't great and you won't be walking to the store for your milk and eggs.
