WHAT THEY GOT:
In the past few years, many dramatic changes took place at this roughly 80-year-old property, starting with the new roof, windows, porch and shed outside to upgraded wiring, heating and cooling systems inside.
At the end of the main hall – past a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, stained glass windows and entry to the dining room – the kitchen was expanded to add a breakfast area with walkouts to a deck and custom, built-in shortage and a desk.
Upstairs, a fourth bedroom was removed to create a bigger four-piece bathroom with a glass shower stall and whirlpool tub, and another bedroom was enlarged to create a spacious master suite.
Carpeting was recently installed in the recreation room and office in the basement, which also has a bathroom and workshop.
Outside, there is a gated, mutual driveway and a front parking pad for two cars.
THE AGENT'S TAKE:
"It was actually a pretty big house for a typical detached, three-bedroom house there because it was a four-bedroom house originally," agent Julie Kinnear says.
"[Plus] it's in a very demand pocket because its right across from Bedford Park school, so it would work well for a family … and you're right near the subway."
