House of the week: $3.9 million for a stone jewel perched on the Scarborough Bluffs

: 41 Hill Crescent

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Cliffcrest-Guildwood

AGENT: Ken C. Digalakis, Re/Max All-Stars Realty

PRICE: $3,995,000

THE PLACE: Situated along the Scarborough Bluffs, this five-bedroom pile with oversized granite tile flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows and an open-concept floor plan screams “modern” without being cold. With all the accoutrements associated with a $4-million home (Sub-Zero kitchen appliances, CCTV security monitoring, seven bathrooms), the real story at this stunner is the view of the lake from high atop the bluffs.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Lake Ontario is visible from almost every room.

BIG SELLING POINT: With a brutal winter predicted and no indication of when the groundhog might pop his head out, the new owners will appreciate the geothermal heating and warmed driveway.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The large yard makes for scenic vistas, but also a whole lot of landscaping bills or weekends on the riding mower.
