Well this week's Home of the Week, is owned by former Maple Leafs hockey player Doug Gilmour.like me who doesn't care one way or another about hockey I say so what? However if you are a big hockey fan, it may make a difference?
My opinion on the place; totally lacking in personality, a dash of colour wouldn't go amiss. It's very nice but you can buy the same house all over the city and probably for a bit cheaper. So I'll pass on this one!!!
The Cottage of the Week is stunning. Actually to be honest, it's where it is situated that is stunning, right by the lake. The actual cottage although really nice is not perfect. Do love the sun room, do love the tiles on the kitchen floor, but there is room for improvement in the kitchen. If someone were giving it to me, I wouldn't say no though, but I wouldn't want to pay $3.5 million for it, even though it has 150+ acres. Love the property taxes though, just over $1,500 a year is a steal.The views though are as perfect as you can get. Just wonder how long it would take to plow out that driveway in winter though?
The best thing about the Condo of the Week, is that you are right downtown Toronto, if that's where you want to be; and you can say you live at the Ritz-Carlton. However if neither of those things are a must have, along with paying over $2,100 a month in maintenance fees, along with the $1.5 million price tag, then this condo is not for you. I personally couldn't live that high up in the sky. Although you are practically next door to the CN Tower, I think you are a bit too close to appreciate it. The interior is nothing exciting either for the price. Do like the look of the floor in the living room though.
So there you are, what are your thoughts?
