Site near a busy street dampens enthusiasm for Etobicoke bungalow Add to ...




TAXES $4,530 (2013)


LISTING AGENT JoAnne Gludish, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: With traffic on Kipling Avenue just beyond the backyard of this detached bungalow in Richmond Gardens, only a dozen interested buyers showed up on its doorstep. A couple of visitors did make offers around the same time this winter.

What They Got: Like other neighbouring homes built around the 1960s, this brick residence is sectioned off for different affairs, from three bedrooms and three bathrooms to an eat-in kitchen and combined living and dining area with crown mouldings and hardwood floors.

Laminate floors cover the basement, which has a recreation room with a wood-burning fireplace, open games room and kitchen with access to the double garage and separate entrance to the 38-by-147-foot grounds.

The Agent’s Take: “Parmalea Crescent is a very desirable street in a very desirable community,” agent JoAnne Gludish said.

“[Buyers] love the pocket because of the high school, Richview Collegiate, which seems to be the premier school of choice for a lot of people.”

The state of this bungalow was also its strength. “It’s a lovely home in fairly original condition, but it was beautifully maintained and super clean on a very large, pie-shaped lot,” says Mrs. Gludish, who notes averages lot about 120-feet deep.

“[Plus] it has a great basement with a walk up to the garage, which in that pocket, is unusual.”
