Every week, the Toronto Life magazine/website posts in their real estate section, Home/Cottage/Condo of the week. Not every week; I in turn post about them on here.
So my question is when you hear the word cottage what do you envision?
Why am I asking this? This week's "Cottage of the Week," to my mind is NOT a cottage. Not only is it an island, which is fine, but it has a price tag of $12 million. My idea of a cottage is somewhere small, cozy and a place you can relax, without worrying that you may or may not disturb or make a mark on the designer decor.
The "Home of the Week," is pricey at $5.8 million, but according to one of the comments on the post, it's the going rate. When I was looking at the photos I kept thinking there was something missing, it wasn't until I got to the end I realized what....painting's, there is nothing hanging on the walls. One of the closets is full of clothes so someone must live there?
On a side note. Our daughter and son-in-law got married at the Golf and Country Club that this house backs onto. Nice area, close to the city, so that's why the price is what it is.
The "Condo of the Week," is on the market for $700,000. It's okay but doesn't show well, as it looks cluttered to me and I am not a huge fan of that sort of duct work being exposed, but that is just me. The outdoor terrace is nice though, but if that a/c unit is noisy it won't be a great area to sit.
I spent a great couple of hours at The Knitting Basket, helping Angie out with a couple of things with her blog and Facebook page. Pop by and say hello if you have a minute. I love the shawl pattern she posted on there. That yarn she is featuring would be lovely knit in it. But NO I WILL NOT BUY ANY MORE YARN UNTIL I FINISH SOMETHING!!!! The two balls I picked up on Thursday while there don't count do they???
