BAD LISTING PHOTOS— Some listing photos look so good they could have been photoshopped while other are just plain terrible. This week, we bring you some weird and awful listing photos from around the web.
ON THE MARKET— This four-bedroom house in the High Park neighbourhood features some exquisite brokerbabble. According to the listing, the house is like the "serenity of Muskoka, water lapping at your shore, memories of Frank Lloyd Wright and mid century modern with walls of glass and poured concrete…Skate from your back door, marvel over nature, roast marshmallows on the open fire or watch the stars from your hot tub." Sounds pretty nice, doesn't it? There's also this two-level loft in the Creed Building, a former ladies fur warehouse. This property is on the market for $795,000.
COTTAGE COUNTRY— How about staying in an open-air treehouse hotel? Farrow Partnership Architects is hoping to reinvent the treehouse in their new wood-style resort located in the Bruce Peninsula. It's an amazing idea (in summer months only) but will it ever get built? Take a look.
BRIDLE PATH— This $6.4 million dollar mansion in the Bridle Path looks like it's plucked from a murder mystery novel. The realtor is quick to tell us otherwise tweeting "when you take a tour of 98 Old Colony Road, it sure doesn't feel like murder mystery novel!" Perhaps, a house tour is required.
BAY STREET— A new Delta Hotel is coming to the Financial District. The new Delta Toronto is a 45-storey building connected to two office towers. Will Bay Street embrace the new hotel? It's scheduled to open later this year.
