Address: 118 Brooke Avenue
Neighbourhood: Bedford Park
Agent: Nargess Giahi Nejad, Homelife/Bayview Realty Inc.
Price: $2,498,000

The place: A modern box with four bedrooms and five bathrooms, all set atop a 130-foot-long lot.

The history: The house was designed by Lorne Rose, an architecture firm known for a more traditional style of mini-mansion. The interior has 3,700 square feet of living space.

Big selling point: The lower-level recreation room, which comes with radiant floor heating, a wet bar (complete with a wine fridge and dishwasher), a gas fireplace, lots of open shelving and a walkout to the backyard, would make a great mancave/womancave/childcave.

Possible deal breaker: There are wood accents everywhere here—from the entryway, to the lacquered oak custom cabinets in the kitchen, to the bathroom vanities and shelving throughout the home. It makes for a cohesive look, but it may be a bit much for anyone who prefers simpler surroundings.

By the numbers:

• $2,498,000
• 3,700 square feet, including the basement
• 5 bathrooms
• 4 bedrooms
• 4-car driveway (plus a single-car garage)
• 3 gas fireplaces
• 1 basement wet bar
