House of the Week: $1.5 million for a west-end home with a deck and a hot tub off the master bedroomBuild Simple
The Place: A newly renovated three-story home with a finished basement at the edge of bustling Bloor West Village.
Bragging Rights: A top-to-bottom overhaul earlier this year added a raft of trendy features: an open-concept great room with 15-foot ceilings, a floating oak staircase, energy efficient LED potlights and wide-planked oak hardwood floors.
Big Selling Point: The 330-square-foot deck off the master bedroom boasts a hot tub roomy enough for four (you can single-handedly try to resurrect the key party!).
Possible Deal Breaker: The backyard has leafy trees and—rare for the area—a private driveway with parking for four, but little in the way of grass. Great for lazy mowers, not so great if you’re looking to get a game of bocce going.
By the Numbers:
- 2,790 square feet (including the lower level)
- 330-square-foot deck
- 4-person hot tub
- 4 bedrooms
- 4 bathrooms
- 1 detached garage
- 1 built-in intercom system
