More Houses of the Week

The place: A four-bedroom home on a street with only ten houses, all of which share a view of the northwestern edge of High Park.

The history: The home, like most of the others on the tiny street, is in the Arts and Crafts style. The homeowner, Norma Gigone of Norma G Designs, did the interior design with Nick Alcaro of Total Home Décor. Among the updates: a laundry room in what used to be a ground-floor closet and a wine cellar in the basement. The kitchen was redone in 2008.

Big selling point: The backyard, which looks a little like a fancy rooftop lounge at a King Street restaurant, is the work of yet another designer: Charles Gane, a principal at Core Architects. It has an eight-seat dining table, a four-seat bar, a fireplace, a barbecue, a stainless steel sink—and, oh yeah, a television.

Possible deal breaker: Moving onto a street with only a handful of neighbours might be good for those with dreams of a Mayberry-esque existence, but anonymity could be hard to come by.

By the numbers:

• $3,579,000
• 288-bottle wine cellar
• 4 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 2 fridges
• 1 outdoor kitchen
• 1 outdoor fireplace
• 1 indoor fireplace

Most homeowners are lucky if they have a gas hookup for a grill. This place has a stainless steel outdoor kitchen with a breakfast bar, a dining table, and a lounge area with a fireplace.
