In a family-friendly community shaded by tall oaks and full of mainly semi-detached residences, this 2½-storey house has two advantages over neighbouring properties: private parking and no attached neighbours.

While at first glance it might look like a semi, it doesn't share a wall with the adjacent house.

"[The price represents] good value in that area for that type of house," agent Julie Kinnear says.

Various owners have renovated the roughly 90-year-old house, installing new windows, wiring, plumbing and a central vacuum system.

There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a main-floor sunroom/office and an upper-level family room.

The dining room opens to the kitchen, which includes a peninsula, breakfast bar, a built-in desk and stainless-steel appliances, including a gas range.

"It was a nice, great area to hang out and watch people cook, chat, drink and all that stuff," Ms. Kinnear says.

Toward the back, there is a unique, skylit mudroom, a full bathroom and walk-in closet. There is access to the patio and parking at the back of the private backyard.

A curved staircase leads from the living room to the second level, where there are two bedrooms, including a master suite with a four-piece bathroom, and a family room with stairs to a third-floor loft that is used as a third bedroom.

Above-grade windows illuminate the basement, which houses a gym, an extra bedroom and storage rooms, including one with a walkout.

For amenities, it is a short walk to the subway, schools, and the shops and services of the Junction area.
