Property of the Week: $998,000 Groat Estates Home

West Coast modern vibes, steps from the ravine

February 14, 2017

Where it is

10345 Villa Avenue


The previous homeowners encountered some criticism for the construction of this 1986 home due to its modern design since local residents believed it did not fit in with the pre-1930s architecture — rampant with Craftsman and Four Square style homes — that dominated the Westmount area.

What to love

Appropriately designed to accommodate both winter and summer months, this two-story property allows its dwellers to enjoy the seasons all year long with a heated sunroom, large deck for outdoor entertainment, and private balcony overlooking a tree-filled ravine. Plus, the beautiful red wood façade gives off major cabin feels in the big city, while blending in with its environment.

What to consider

Being situated within a lush forest, there’s a chance that you might come across some wild animals — a plus for nature lovers, but perhaps a deterrent for those who’d rather enjoy a critterless backyard.

The stats

2,060 square feet

4 bedrooms

3 baths

1 fireplace

1 single garage attached

Property listed for $998,000 with realtor Janice Kosak

The 18-foot ceilings make the living room feel spacious, and the wood-burning stove makes it feel like a cozy retreat.

The clean lines and simple color palette in the kitchen mean you can put your personal stamp on this space.

A private balcony overlooking the ravine is a space you can enjoy even in the winter.

Those who enjoy entertaining outdoors will love the large outdoor space — and so will guests.
