[/UPDATE-Oct26]


Size
Near 2600 sq/feet (260 sq.m.), or 3600 sq/feet (360 sq.m.) with finished basement.
Detailed house plan

House age
8-10 years.
As usually the age is a secret.
Like women who like to coquet.

Property type
Detached 3 storey house.
There are central vacuum and central air conditioner.
Hardwood floors are on kitchen, and broadloom at all other rooms.

Lot size
24 x 117 feet (7 х 35 metres).
The width is not so huge however it is the usual problem for Beaches area. Especially for those new blocks of buildings.
I would say that's a bit claustrophobic.

Kitchen and appliances
Everything is new and pleasant to take a look at.
No negative emotions at all.

Main rooms
Unlikely to the previous million dollar house for sale there are less rooms in this house. And even those ones are placed not so spacy.

Family room and Living room with a kitchen - here is the first floor.
Toronto house - what's inside?
Also natural gas fireplace if that's important for you.
The walls are painted a bit bright however it doesn't spoil them. Usually I am very careful about multiple colors on walls but here nothing is behind the limit of common sense.

Wires for speakers and different kinds of electronics are placed in the walls. So you can find speakers in so unpredictable corners. Gorgeous!

Bedrooms
Bedrooms are on the second and third floors.
There are three of them.

I guess the bedrooms are larger comparing to some average Canadian bedroom but it would be strange to see something very average in the million dollar house.

Basement
As you can expect basement is finished.

To live there is a bit uncomfortable I guess however as a recreational or game room, or maybe home theater room it is good enough.

Driveway
No driveway here.
The road, and just walkway to the house.
Walkway to the Beaches house in Toronto
2 cars garage is on a backyard.

Backyard
The backyard is surprisingly nice.
Backyard in house for sale in Toronto
Left and right sides are bordered by a fence, the far side of the backyard is backed by a 2-car garage.
Backyard
It may look a bit inconvenient because of all your shopping must be taken and carried from the garage to house walking through the backyard. And even without shopping - you are coming/driving home and feel free to walk to the house through rain/snow/dirt/watching of your neighbors. No privacy at all. House for million dollar shouldn't have such features...

Area
The area is Beaches.
3-5 minutes walking to the beach on Ontario Lake.
Everything is near-by.
The area is nice but maybe a bit noisy.
You may experience some discomfort living there with children.

Schools
No problems with schools.
Kew Beach Day Care Co-Operative Pre School‎ and The Beach School are within 5-10 minutes of walking.

Parks
There are many parks within walking distance.
Also lake shore beaches are right here - the paradise for dog owners.

Shopping
A required minimum you'll find here,
for serious shopping feel free to drive to less crowded areas.

Transportation
TTC (Toronto public transit, buses and streetcars) are everywhere, you don't need to walk for more than 5 minutes and wait for more than 10 minutes. So the area allows you to live without your own car. However I may suppose the people who buy million dollar houses don't use streetcars. But who knows?

Property tax
$6250.00 for year of 2008.

Pros
The area is nice.
Everything is right here - restaurants, shopping, public transit, schools, exhibitions.
Patio on backyard

Cons
The price.
The area is new so looks a bit empty (no trees).
Frankly speaking the house is not so spacious.

Resume
I guess it's not the best one million investment.
However the Beaches fans I bet will like the house.
My personal opinion - 5 out of 10.
But honestly I never had a million dollars :) so maybe your opinion will be different? Anyway it is worth to take a look at...
