This three-bedroom, two-storey brick house near Jane and Dundas streets stood out as an ideal starter home for young families or couples, agent Julie Kinnear says.
"It was a great value, [and was in] totally move-in condition," Ms. Kinnear says of the semi-detached unit. "The mechanics were in good shape, the kitchen and bathroom were nice, and you could rent the basement apartment if you wanted extra income."
Hardwood flooring enhances the open-concept living and dining room, and the upper halls and bedrooms. A four-piece bathroom upstairs has ceramic tile and a deep soaker tub.
The kitchen, renovated last year, has ceramic floors, maple cabinetry, a breakfast bar and halogen light fixtures. It leads out to an 11- by 14-foot deck surrounded by mature trees, an usual feature that many people liked, according to Ms. Kinnear.
"In the back, there were no neighbours, so it really felt private on the back deck," she adds.
The basement has a recreation room with broadloom, a separate entrance, windows, a galley kitchen and a three-piece bathroom.
Four cars can fit in the driveway, and the front lawn was landscaped with perennial gardens and an interlocking brick path.
The neighbourhood is popular because of its proximity to Bloor West Village, reputable schools, and numerous parks and gardens.
