House of the week: 98 Valecrest Drive

Valecrest Drive is one of those Toronto streets with a mixture of mid-century homes and newly built mini-mansions that take advantage of the sprawling lots found in the Humber Valley Village neighbourhood.

I've always fancied the idea of dining in a rain storm.

Walkability matters. This house features one of the lowest Walk Scores I've seen, so don't expect to head out on foot for a carton of milk.
