Over the holidays, this semi-detached house caught the attention of buyers looking to move into a vibrant downtown neighbourhood, says agent Lucais Shepherd.

It has a prime address on a tree-lined street "close to everything in Little Italy, including cafés, restaurants, shopping, parks and the University of Toronto," states Mr. Shepherd.

The physical appeal of this nearly century-old home is its grand 3,470-square-foot plan - including the basement - with five bedrooms, three bathrooms and three kitchens. The set up was ideal for the seller, who offered lodgings to students on occasion, Mr. Shepherd explains.

Large windows and 9.5-foot ceilings were also attractive features. "Those are the kinds of things that give the house a really airy feeling," says Mr. Shepherd.

On the main floor, there is a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a dining room and a kitchen with access to the backyard and a double garage off a rear lane.

The second floor houses a full bathroom and three bedrooms, including a fireside master suite and a small bedroom with a built-in vanity and bar.

The third floor is rounded out with a kitchen and two bedrooms, including one with a private bathroom and another with dormer windows facing west.

The lower level houses one bedroom, one bathroom and a recreation room with a walkout.

Many original features were preserved, such as the trims, staircase and fireplaces, though the roof and boiler were replaced in 1998 and 2008 respectively. "Those are features that make it maintenance-free," says Mr. Shepherd. "It's a well-preserved, large family home."
