Having blinds that open and close at the push of a button is no doubt an impressive home feature. But how about having a home where the entire facade can do the same thing? Because a house with an impressive wood design element that just came on the market in Toronto can do exactly that.
Located at 83 Virginia Avenue in the Woodbine Heights neighbourhood, the stand-out home with its modern shape and curved, wooden slat overlay hit the market this week and is asking $2,488,800.
The wood pieces, the listing photos reveal, slide left and right in front of the property's floor-to-ceiling windows to either let more light in or provide more privacy to the Toronto house. The wood even extends down in front of the home's built-in garage.
The eye-catching curved design continues inside the house with a 27-ft custom 3D wall that runs the entire length of the staircase from the basement to the second floor. At the top, it meets up with the home's oversized skylight.
Unsurprisingly, the Virginia Avenue home is a newer build. The property last sold in 2018 for just $770,000 and at the time, it had an older two-bedroom bungalow onsite. The new modern home has five bright and airy bedrooms -- four above grade and one below grade -- and four beautifully designed bathrooms. The primary suite in particular is stunning, with a bathroom that could rival some of Toronto's nicest hotels thanks to its double vanity, large freestanding tub, and sleek, curbless glass shower.
And it doesn't stop there, because just about everything else in the home from the three-sided fireplace to the large kitchen with an eat-in island to the interesting light fixtures is sure to catch buyers' attention.

Even the basement is a huge plus thanks to its bar area and walk-out to the backyard. And with green space being a hot commodity in Toronto, this house seems to deliver with a sizable lawn.
The home's ultra-modern design may not be for everyone, but whoever ends up with this property is sure to have one of the most interesting houses in the city.
