This one and a half-storey stone house offers a lot of character inside and out, but it also was an affordable entry into the genteel and leafy Kingsway neighbourhood.

"It was on a busy street, but it was a unique, old-fashioned, very quaint corner lot," listing agent Julie Kinnear says. "It was prime Kingsway, so it qualifies for some of the best schools in Toronto, which is definitely a perk. And it had the leaded-glass windows and beautiful trim you'd expect in that neighbourhood."

Those heritage features in this four-bedroom home were nicely restored, and lend a Tudor character to the property. Along with the bay window and stone fireplace in the living room, the main floor features an eat-in kitchen and a den at the rear that opens to a stone patio in the backyard.

The home's three bathrooms had been updated recently with new fixtures, while the dining room features a side leaded-glass window that, with the house being on a corner lot, allows in a lot of natural light. The windows in the upstairs bedrooms also have few obstructions from neighbouring properties.

The finished basement includes a recreation room and a fourth bedroom, and there is a single garage attached to the side of the house.
