$539,900 for a renovated yellow-brick semi in Old East Village
Address: 481 English Street
Neighbourhood: Old East Village
Agent: Daniel G. Paul, United Realty Services Inc., Brokerage
A boldly designed three-bed, four-bath semi-detached in Old East Village.
From the street, this might look like a small, cozy example of an Old East semi. But step inside, and the home tells a different story, with four distinct floors and an enviable backyard patio.
An open-concept main floor takes a more elegant approach, with wainscotting and custom millwork along the white walls, contrasting with black accents and a rich wood floor. A spacious living area leads into a combination dining room and kitchen that features modern appliances, gas stove and island countertop with seating.
Head up one floor, however, and you’re greeted with a new vibe: modern, chic stylings, including a bright black-and-white floor, textured lighting and painted ceilings to give this level a metropolitan feel. (It’s also functional, featuring two bedrooms including a primary with ensuite bathroom and a secondary with wall-to-ceiling storage.) On this floor is a bathroom with a walk-through glass shower (with rainfall showered) that leads to a private soaking tub.
Up one floor further and the vibe changes again as you step into a finished loft that has its own bathroom, extra bedroom and the potential for a balcony to be installed (it currently lacks a railing).
And then there’s the basement, currently being used as a fully finished children’s play area with a large Winnie-the-Pooh mural. It also includes a more adult-friendly workshop that leads out into the backyard.
An impressive backyard features an outdoor lounge, covered hot tub, outdoor furniture and stone patio. There are multiple sitting areas here, including one covered room attached to the side of the storage shed.
