House of the Week: $2.4 million for an open-concept family home in St. Andrew-Windfields

jan13-HOTW-14-Fairmeadow-Avenue-toronto-introIf you ever wished you had two living rooms, this modern home is for you! 5000 square feet, a pool and a hot tub in addition to five bedrooms and five baths. However, if you like some colour on your walls, you’ll have to invest in some paint – it’s a little stark.

ADDRESS: 14 Fairmeadow Avenue

NEIGHBOURHOOD: St. Andrew-Windfields

PRICE: $2,395,000

THE PLACE: A five-bedroom house with a contemporary look on one of York Mills’s winding, tree-lined streets.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The basement has two living rooms, which means there’s plenty of space to set up a workshop for an obscure hobby of your choice.

BIG SELLING POINT: The open-concept living and dining area are perfect for hosting big parties. And, if the festivities become overwhelming, the main-level library offers a peaceful retreat.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The variety of window shapes and sizes adds visual interest to the front façade, but could make buying window treatments a little complicated.
