Sold! Ultra-modern mansion goes for $5 million in Toronto

Located at the end of a cul-de-sac in Bennington Heights, this modern mini-mansion is a great example of how good design can make even a minimalist home inviting. 

2 orchard green torontoThe sprawling ground level of the house is almost entirely wide open save for a well-placed two-sided fireplace that divides the living and dining rooms from the family room and the kitchen. It's a strategy that's been used to some success elsewhere around town.

2 orchard green torontoWhy it sold for what it did

This house has a lot going for it, from impeccable interior finishes to a quiet sense of curb appeal on its dead end street. It would not be inappropriate to characterize this as a dream home.

This house sold for less than $2 million before it was rebuilt, so the jump in price is remarkable, but so too was the work done to transform the previous house, which was humble compared to this show stopper.
