This detached, two-storey house is located in the Kingston Road-Woodbine Avenue area, on a quiet street where most homes are semi-detached. Throw in the fact it also has a basement apartment and a price in the mid-$400,000s, and you've got a popular package, agent Julie Kinnear says.
"It's a good value for the money," she adds. "It's nice and close to the Beaches, except you don't have as much traffic."
In the past few years, the more than 1,200-square-foot residence was extensively modernized. The wiring and water main were upgraded, for example, and there are new French doors and a cedar deck off the rear dining room. A new fence was added in the yard.
The deck leads to a patio surrounded by lush greenery, and there is a tiered garden in front. "They did a really nice job landscaping," Ms. Kinnear adds.
Some original features remain â€” mouldings, a decorative fireplace and stained-glass windows in the living room. "[They] added a lot of character," the agent says.
There are laundry machines near the main kitchen, which has retro checkerboard-tile floors and access to a stairwell that exits to the side and leads down to the basement.
The latter, which was rented out for $675 a month, includes a bedroom, living room, kitchen and a full bathroom.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including a master suite that features a renovated a walk-in closet with floor-to-ceiling armoire, and a semi-en suite bathroom.
There is no parking, but public transit, shops and eateries are nearby on Queen Street and Danforth Avenue.
