Located in the super prestigious Lawerence Park, 151 Rochester Avenue is a 6,081 sq ft. contemporary home with serious curb appeal. It was custom designed by Katherine Newman, who’s known for designing some of the more extravagant homes like Alex Snaider’s 10 High Point Road. It’s currently listed with Erin Ashby for $4,795,000 – which is a little pricey considering the only other house on Rochester Avenue listed around that price is also represented by the same agent. On the other hand, it’s probably one of the lower price points Newman has worked on.
The 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 5 fireplace (!) home features coffered ceilings, heated floors, and layers upon layers of moulding. The gourmet kitchen isn’t my style, but it’s fully equipped with high quality cabinetry and appliances, and features a glass enclosed rotunda that serves as a breakfast area overlooking the garden – which is pretty cool.
Other features that might tickle your fancy are a master bedroom with five piece ensuite, a games room with wine bar, and an underground garage – designed to conserve prime ground floor real estate.
