House of the Week: $2.4 million for a contemporary home on Rosedale’s northern edge

ImageHere’s a four bedroom home with a gorgeous backyard. It’s almost 20 years old, but still looks great.

ADDRESS: 211 Glen Road

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Rosedale–Moore Park

PRICE: $2,350,000

THE PLACE: A modern four-bedroom house at the northern tip of Rosedale, near the walking trails of Chorley Park and down the street from Summerhill Market.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Romano Erba, who designed this house, has the stamp of approval from architect star Carlos Ott (famous for the Opéra Bastille in Paris and skyscrapers in Abu Dhabi and Dubai)—Erba also designed Ott’s Toronto home.

BIG SELLING POINT: The large backyard, with its well-tended patio and swimming pool, is awfully tempting now that the hot weather has arrived. The long driveway and 3-car garage means there’s plenty of parking for guests, or extra space to spread out more lounge chairs.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Although the house was built in 1993, the clean, contemporary vibe has mostly held up. Still, a few of the features—the glass block walls, for instance—feel a little dated.
