HOUSE OF THE MONTH
$5.2-Million For a Freshly Renovated, Window-Lined Row House in Yorkville
Address: 114 Hazelton Avenue
List Price: $5,200,000
The Place: A four-bedroom, four bathroom newly renovated Yorkville row house with some serious architectural cred.
The History: Built in 1984, the home was designed by Barton Myers, a prolific architect whose work includes the revamped Royal Conservatory of Music, Wolf House and Ivan Reitman's production offices in Los Angeles. A 15-month renovation in 2013 by Batay Csorba Architects added a four-storey glass facade in the rear, a new kitchen, new bathrooms and an elevator.
Big Selling Point: The 960-square-foot master suite spans the entire length of the house. It has his and hers walk-in closets, a rain-head shower that could easily fit two (or six, if it's a party), a balcony in the bathroom and a 10-foot-wide row of floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom.
Possible Deal Breaker: The home is 17.5 feet wide, which some may consider to be on the narrow side - though it's normal for Yorkville. Even so, there's 3,930 square feet of space spread over four floors, and the interior feels even larger because of the glass walls in the back.
By The Numbers:
- $12,020.02 in taxes (2015)
- 3,930 square feet
- 812-bottle wine storage
- 40 feet of glass walls at the back
- 4 bedrooms
- 4 bathrooms
- 2 car garage
Oddly, the kitchen and living room aren't on the same floor.
A bedroom is also on the main floor. The ledge is open to the lower level.
Living & dining are on 2nd floor. Dining has gas fireplace & porcelain slab wall.
Next to the dining area is the kitchen.
The kitchen is underneath the atrium. At the tallest, ceiling height is 20-feet.
Master takes up entire 3rd floor. Sliding glass opens onto the tree canopy in rear.
Ensuite balcony opens onto Hazelton Ave, in case the owner cherishes the
opportunity to blow-dry in public.
The backyard features high privacy walls.
Rear yard when lit up at night.
