The $3.849-million price tag for this four-bedroom home on a 53-by-110-foot lot is rarely seen in a neighbourhood where most properties cost considerably more on somewhat larger properties. That fact didn’t elude half a dozen visitors who rushed to see it in private and several more who swept through the open houses in October.
“For a relatively new home, it’s very difficult to find anything under $4-million,” agent Andre Kutyan said. “The average brand-new home is in the $5.5- to $6-million-dollar range.”
What they got
In 2013, architect Richard Librach helmed the transformation of this detached residence into a home with 3,535 square feet of living space with four skylights, six bathrooms. built-in speakers and a garage.
There are formal living and dining rooms, as well as a casual family room with a gas fireplace and an open kitchen with an island, banquette seating and walkout to a deck and terrace.
The 1,685-square-foot basement has a guest room, stone and glass-lined cellar and a recreation room with heated floors.
The agent’s take
“It was a full addition/renovation, they only kept three original walls,” Mr. Kutyan said. “And it’s a very modern design [as] Lawrence Park homes tends to be traditional.”
The backyard was upgraded by landscape architects Land Inc. “It was a cool, very contemporary backyard with concrete feature walls, landscape lighting and a nice large hot tub,” Mr. Kutyan said.
“It was a very big selling feature of the house because it was a really private backyard oasis, even though you’re literally at Yonge and Lawrence.”
