$729,900 for a one-of-a-kind, California-inspired Oakridge home looking for a little vision and care
Address: 1012 Oxford Street West
Agent: Kourtney Krasnicki, Maverick Real Estate Inc.
A unique, California-ranch-inspired four-bedroom in the family friendly Oakridge neighbourhood.
With five bedrooms and over 3,100 square feet of living space, this two-storey house — with flourishes of mid-century California contemporary style but otherwise not easily categorizable, architecturally speaking — offers a little bit of everything. Featuring poured cement and steel beam construction, the main level boasts a more traditional layout, with three bedrooms, a rec room and a den. But it is upstairs where this house comes to life, with a stylish open-concept layout, featuring a tricked-out chef’s kitchen with an industrial gas stove, flat-top and a grill (to say nothing of the double ovens, the pasta arm and the warming oven), living and dining rooms, a sizeable patio and space for a home office or extra bedroom. The backyard features a hot tub room with shower, an in-ground swimming pool and a small pool house that doubles as a tiki hut with bar seating. Yes, it needs a little TLC both inside and out, but there are not many homes like this on the market.
Big Selling Point
Amid London’s hot real estate market, with its new builds, historic downtown charmers and renovated properties in the suburbs, this house offers something quite unique in terms of both style and function, perhaps ideal for someone in search of lots of space, both indoors and out, and the vision and willingness to bring it back to its former glory.
