House of the Week: $4 million for a Tudor-style home in Lawrence Park South


House of the week – just under $4M for this place. Is it me or does that dining room table seem really small for the room? You should be able to host dinner parties for 20 here!

The basement and the yard are pretty spectacular, though.

Address: 161 Coldstream Avenue
Neighbourhood: Lawrence Park South
Price: $3,925,000

The Place: A family home with a Tudor-style exterior and a contemporary interior near Avenue Road and Glencairn Avenue.

Bragging Rights: Architect Richard Wengle (known for his Block Townhomes) masterminded a renovation that brought in a sleek kitchen, open-concept layouts and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Big Selling Point: The sunken family room is both eye-catching in its own right and provides a great uninterrupted sightline from the front of the house to windows at the back.

Possible Deal Breaker: The area between the family room and kitchen could be a dead zone without a grand piano to fill it.

By The Numbers:
• $3,925,000
• $18,763 in property taxes (2012)
• 4,655 square feet
• 2,183 square foot basement
