This four-bedroom bungalow has had the same owner since it was built in 1959, and has been immaculately maintained even if its décor hasn't been kept up to speed.

"They raised their whole family there," listing agent Julie Kinnear says. "They had carpet on the main floor until recently, when they pulled it up, so the hardwood floors are gorgeous.

"The kitchen was probably its lowest point; it needed a renovation. But we had two offers on it, which we didn't expect."

The home sits on an enormous 70- by 118-foot lot. Ms. Kinnear says two houses across the street were torn down recently to make way for a huge single home, but there are no such plans for this property.

Other features include a ceramic floor in the kitchen, which opens out to an elevated deck overlooking the backyard. There are two bathrooms, and a renovated basement with recreation room, fireplace, pot lights and built-in shelving. A new roof was put on in 2001.
