Modern Leaside Townhouse- 1C Walder Avenue East

Designed By Batay-Csorba Architects, this light-filled modern new build features 3 + 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, over 2,500 square feet of living space, and a list price of $1,785,000.

We’re loving the mix of exterior materials and angular windows to let in maximum light.

The interior space reminds us of a Scandinavian vibe with its clean lines, light colours, and the featured fireplace stack. We can definitely picture ourselves getting cozy in this space with family and friends.

The light streams in from picture windows on both sides and the glass walled staircase ensures maximum light throughout the space – a big plus in our books!

The backyard space is low maintenance and private, though some additional greenery might make it feel a bit more inviting. An easy fix for any future buyer.

The kitchen features beautiful finishes, tons of storage, and a waterfall edge on (one side of??) the island counter top.

The control freak sides of us are wishing the waterfall edge continued on this side of the counter top for symmetry – but that’s just our preference.

The master suite occupies a full level of this townhouse.

From this angle, it seems like the shower is not glassed in – while we’re hoping these photos were taken before the final glass was delivered, we’re not holding our breath. Open showers are a big pet peeve of ours – while less expensive to construct, functionally, they just mean a soaking wet bathroom every time you shower. (Or is it just us??)

Nice linear drain though!

Other notable features of this gem – a rooftop loft and a direct access, interior garage, which is probably why the living space is spread over 4 levels. In a mixed climate city like Toronto, a direct access garage is a big plus in our books. No shoveling out a car in the depths of winter! Though the close proximity to transit (i.e., the currently under construction Eglinton crosstown line) means that you may not even need that car. It’s a win win in our books!

On the market since November 7, 2016 (i.e., 6 weeks now), the question remains… is there a price drop in this beauty’s future? Or is it just the time of year?
