According to agent Shirley Baum, a major selling point of this four-level, side-split residence was its treed setting on a child-friendly street in a safe neighbourhood filled with parks and golf courses.
The three-bedroom home is also close to shops, schools, a community centre and public transit, as well as amenities on Bayview Avenue and Yonge Street.
As for the roughly 40-year-old house, it's in above-average condition, having undergone many updates in the past decade. The only thing [the buyers]really had to do was hang up their clothes," Ms. Baum says. "They could move right in."
The previous owners repainted the exterior, installed casement windows, replaced the roof and repaved driveway to the garage.
On the first floor, a family room features a beamed ceiling and walkout to large private garden. A powder room was expanded to include a shower stall. Overlooking the family room from an upper level is an eat-in kitchen, renovated with ceramic backsplashes, a pantry and new appliances. Nearby, the L-shaped living and dining area features new hardwood flooring, as do several other rooms.
Further up are the bedrooms, including the master, which includes his and her closets. It has access to a semi-ensuite bathroom.
The finished basement includes a recreation room with pot lights, panelled walls and a wet bar.
