What They Got: This 2 1/2 -storey, brick house is finished with 3,017 square feet of living space spread across four floors, each with a kitchen and one bathroom with the exception of the third floor and multiple exit points to the 20-by-125-foot lot and double garage off a rear laneway.

All rooms are essentially separate, including a fireside living room, central dining quarters and family room on the ground level and an enclosed recreation space in the basement, plus two bedrooms on both the second and

third floors.

The Agent’s Take: “Being situated in Little Italy, which is a very desirable and high demand area, people are going to look at it from different perspectives,” agent Trevor Freeman said. “It lends itself to someone looking for investment potential or possibly having a couple different units or to someone looking to make a beautiful single-family home.”

Regardless of its use, it offers privacy and space. “A lot in that area are semi-detached, so this being detached is definitely something people are looking for,” Mr. Freeman said. “[Plus] being a detached property in Little Italy that has parking is always desirable.”
