Situated on a tree-lined street just south of Bloor Street and west of Ossington Avenue, this three-storey home with three separate living units attracted a lot of attention when it hit the market. It ultimately sold for more than $100,000 over the asking price.
The previous owners occupied the top two floors and rented out the main-floor and basement.
In the owner's suite, the second floor features a sunroom with wood-panelled walls and ceilings. The dining room is adjacent to the living room, which has a brick wood-burning fireplace and a bay window. There is a full bathroom on this level, and an en suite bathroom in one of the two bedrooms on the third floor.
In the main-floor unit, the two bedrooms are situated off the living room. There are laundry facilities adjacent to the kitchen, and the dining room at the rear has a walkout to the yard.
The basement apartment has a bedroom and eat-in kitchen.
The 90-year-old house retains classic features such as hardwood floors and cornice mouldings. The wiring and central air-conditioning system were upgraded, the bathrooms were renovated and new windows were installed.
The backyard features a landscaped garden with a patio and stone walkway to the detached double garage.
The home is close to the Dufferin Mall, Bloor shops, the subway and Dufferin Grove Park.
