Two open house events gave eager buyers the chance to explore this updated Leaside residence and its quiet setting within the family friendly community.
WHAT THEY GOT:
This three-bedroom residence from the 1940s is in move-in condition with updated roofing, windows, wiring and water main installed within the past decade.
More recently, the sellers remodeled the main bathroom upstairs, complete with marble counters and heated floors, and waterproofed the basement, which has a recreation room and a side exit to the private driveway.
Classic features and details include hardwood floors throughout, crown mouldings in the principal rooms and a wood burning fireplace in the living room.
The dining room has access to the kitchen and sliding doors to a deck, stone patio and private garden.
THE AGENT'S TAKE:
"Being a detached [house] in that neighbourhood for that price range is pretty good," says agent Julie Kinnear, who notes the abundance of semi-detached homes in the area. "And it had a big lot, so you could put in a family room addition."
The property is also steps from shops, parks and Northlea Elementary and Middle School.
"You can literally stand on your front lawn and watch your kid walk to school," Ms. Kinnear adds. "That doesn't happen often enough these days where you don't have to drive [kids] to school."
