House of the Week: $3.6 million for a Swansea home with an incredible backyard

Address: 16 Wendigo Way
Neighbourhood: Swansea
Agent: Scott Gilmour, Realty Executives Plus Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $3,579,000

The place: A four-bedroom home on a street with only ten houses, all of which share a view of the northwestern edge of High Park.

The history: The home, like most of the others on the tiny street, is in the Arts and Crafts style. The homeowner, Norma Gigone of Norma G Designs, did the interior design with Nick Alcaro of Total Home Décor. Among the updates: a laundry room in what used to be a ground-floor closet and a wine cellar in the basement. The kitchen was redone in 2008.

Big selling point: The backyard, which looks a little like a fancy rooftop lounge at a King Street restaurant, is the work of yet another designer: Charles Gane, a principal at Core Architects. It has an eight-seat dining table, a four-seat bar, a fireplace, a barbecue, a stainless steel sink—and, oh yeah, a television.
