Home in Scarborough enclave holds affordability edge Add to ...




TAXES $2,470 (2013)


LISTING AGENT Ken Priestman, Century 21 Leading Edge Realty Inc.

The Action: Unlike many other outlying regions of Toronto, infill builders have not yet penetrated this east-end bungalow community, so prices are relatively tame. This detached house was investigated by about 60 potential buyers during weekend open houses, and one secured a deal after topping the list price to just over half a million.

What They Got: With the exception of an updated roof, furnace and eat-in kitchen with ceramic flooring, the interior state of this 55-year-old brick bungalow is original, with hardwood floors tucked beneath broadloom in three bedrooms, living and dining rooms.

The basement provides an office space, recreation area with a gas fireplace, guest bedroom and second bathroom.

Shelter out on the 50-by-100-foot grounds entails a sky-lit carport, shed and covered


The Agent’s Take: “The house was well maintained, so it’s a nice, solid bungalow on one of the premium streets in the St. Andrews community,” agent Ken Priestman said.

“It’s one of those streets with a fancy name people like, it backs onto the Birkdale ravine near Thomson Park, and it’s literally a five-minute walk to the [SRT] at Scarborough Town Centre.”
