In an East York community, just south of the Don Mills Road entrance to the Don Valley Parkway, this brick bungalow is one of the cutest properties around, agent Julie Kinnear says.
"It was a really quiet street," she adds. "The neighbours are really amazing, which is extra special.
"It's important to note that this 729-square-foot house, built in the 1940s, is more energy-efficient than most homes this age."
The house has new thermopane windows, copper plumbing and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, as well as new roofing on the house and refurbished garage.
These and other upgrades helped earn the house a very respectable and on the high side for an older home an Energuide rating of 70 per cent.
The renovations did nothing to detract from the house's charm and character. There are rich, dark-stained hardwood floors in the two bedrooms, combined living and dining room and eat-in kitchen.
The kitchen has a pantry and a walkout to a deck in the private backyard, landscaped with perennials.
The basement was professionally finished and has a laundry room, an office area with broadloom carpeting and an elevated, L-shaped recreation area with laminate floors and pot lights.
The wide lot spans 32 feet across and is spacious enough for future expansion, as many neighbouring homeowners have already done.
