28 Forest Ridge Drive - UPPER FOREST HILL
The inside of this 4+1 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 5,550 square foot house on a 50 x 121 foot lot at 28 Forest Ridge Drive in Upper Forest Hill....
Is not what I was expecting at all.
Though I like the windows...with that stone, I was expecting an ornate iron bannister, lots of beige paint, dark shiny hardwood, maybe some gold curtains, and a kitchen with lots of finials.
Instead, I was shocked when I saw the front hall tile.
The bannister on the stairs is simple, there is no beige, the floors are medium toned and look oiled, and the kitchen is simple.
I love it.
Other than the barn door that I don't love so much, the rest of this house is simple.
The kitchen actually kind of reminds me of a coffee shop.
Something like Rooster Coffee House without the chandeliers...
(there is another coffee shop in Toronto that it looks like more but I can't place it)
And I am good with that.
It's interesting that the wood floor switches directions when you get to the kitchen. Normally, that would bug me but I kind of like it here.
There is a mudroom with a dog shower. The upstairs is good, the basement is good, the backyard is good.
Sure, it's a new build (or is it rebuild?) with a new build layout...
But it is a great family house.
Is the price for this house that has 2 offices instead of a proper living room and fewer bedrooms too high?
This house is listed at $2,893,000.
My choice is definitely this house over Prue.
I'm just not sure it's going to sell for asking.
