The history

Like many homes in the area, this address was originally a bungalow, which the owners tore down in order to build a larger house. Construction started on Canada Day 2015 and finished just last week.

There are four bedrooms on the second floor and one in the basement, all with en suite bathrooms. Here’s one of the second-floor bedrooms:

Big selling point

There are six skylights and massive windows at the front and back of the house, many spanning the floor to ceiling:

Possible deal breaker

The home is clean, crisp and modern, through and through. It’s stylish and contemporary, but that’s not for everyone.
