$549,900 for a traditional family bungalow in Fairmont
Address: 157 Queenston Crescent
Agent: Carlo Castellani, Century 21 First Canadian Corp. Brokerage
A three-bedroom, two-bath family bungalow in east London, back on the market for the first time in over 60 years.
It is with good reason that this east London property has stayed with the original family owners since 1958. The house may not come with the kind of flashy and unique accoutrements that often grace the House of the Week features; instead, it’s a sturdy family home that keeps things simple with standard bedrooms and distinct living areas, maintaining much of the house’s original charm.
Split across more than 1,000 square feet of living space, this property features a light-filled living room with dramatic windows and hardwood oak flooring, an updated kitchen with two-tone cabinets, stainless appliances and a healthy allotment of counter space. There’s also a finished basement with a family room and home office space. Over the years, the home has been upgraded to include a central air system, a new metal roof and updated windows.
The home’s exterior also has plenty going for it. Stepping out of the dining area brings you onto an “oversized sundeck” that overlooks a backyard area that would be perfect for kids or pets to run around in — fully fenced and backing onto the Petersburg Valley and Fairmont trail. DIY fans will also appreciate the detached garage and workshop, all hooked up with hydro and described as a “hobbyist’s dream.”
Big Selling Point
A home doesn’t stay off the market for six decades for no reason — this one seems to have it all: a sturdy, traditional family bungalow in a quiet neighbourhood at a price suitable for young families or first-time buyers.
