The property value of this aging brick bungalow lies largely in its irregular shaped, 39-foot-by-310-foot lot backing onto a ravine. Though its proximity to a hydro corridor was a drawback for some buyers, one party signed a $1.54-million trade early June.
“There are always homes for sale, but not too many on the ravine,” agent Bill Thom said. “So, we had two offers at different times.”
What they got
This roughly 40-year-old house is in original condition with a two-bedroom and two-bathroom plan, an attached double garage and an in-ground pool.
The interior is laid out with an eat-in kitchen and a dining area with access to a deck, as well as entertaining areas with fireplaces on the main and lower levels.
The basement also has its own entrance, two guest rooms, an office and games room.
The agent’s take
“It’s a very beautiful, big lot on a ravine and a quiet crescent,” Mr. Thom said. “The house needs $250,000 to $300,000 to fix it up.”
