$599,900 for a one-level family home in Whitehills
Address: 19 Hawthorne Road
Agent: Jason Froude, Re/Max Centre City Realty Inc., Brokerage
A recently updated ‘70s bungalow in family-friendly Whitehills.
Likely the first thing you will notice about this house from the curb is its shape: a sharp, angular roof that, along with its green exterior, sets it apart from the rest of the residential neighbourhood. But inside is an updated four-bedroom home that’s ideal for a family looking for a house of its own.
Built in 1972, this house was one of the first built on the site of the former Whitehills Golf Club — a short-lived, nine-hole golf course that covered parts of what we now call the Whitehills neighbourhood. Once-upon-a-time it was meant to be the centrepiece of a larger housing subdivision before being closed sometime in the early 1970s. This property would have likely been one of the first homes built after the course was nixed — or at least a home that might have at one time made it easy to roll out of bed and make your morning tee time.
Today, it’s a budget-friendly, one-storey bungalow that has a lot going for it. The main living area combines a cozy living room surrounding a stone mantle and a dining table looking out onto the street. That space leads nicely into a new kitchen, with new tile backsplash, quartz countertops and bar seating at the centre island. There’s also a whole wet bar room off to the side, an exposed brick wall for texture, a pantry room and a laundry room connected to the main kitchen.
There are four bedrooms in this house, which is great if you have kids, but also offers lots of space to be flexible, should someone prefer to have a home office, home studio or another flex room. The master bedroom comes with terrace doors that lead out to a new deck area, while each of the bedrooms comes with ample closet space. To cap it off, the backyard is sizeable, featuring a new deck, plenty of green space, garden beds, two small sheds and a gravel stone walkway.
