Located in a warren of quiet, winding streets a short walk north of High Park, this three-bedroom semi-detached house is distinguished by its brightly painted walls and large eat-in kitchen with ceramic floor. The kitchen opens to a deck that overlooks a lush backyard with a nice canopy of trees and a tall fence.
The main-floor includes a living room and dining room with dark-stained hardwood floors. They are open to each other, but decorated to distinguish each as a separate space, with the living room reflecting a more casual aesthetic and the dining room set apart as a formal area. The latter has the added feature of receiving some natural light from a window in the back wall.
A second full kitchen in the basement opens to a finished, broadloomed recreation room ideal for a media room, exercise space or children's play area. The lower level also has been equipped with a new three-piece bathroom, one of two full bathrooms in the house.
Most of the house's structural features have been improved or replaced over the past six years, including the wiring, air conditioning, roof and windows. The back entrance to the house was rebuilt in 2000. There's also a private parking space, but no garage.
