A family-friendly three-bedroom, two-bath bungalow in the city’s southeast end.
Sometimes in the pages of the House of the Week, ostentatious homes take centre stage; at other times, something simpler takes the spotlight. This home — a three-bed, two-bath bungalow with one storey and a simple, functional layout — definitely fits in the latter camp.
Backing onto a public park and located on a quiet, family-friendly street, this home has a lot going for it if what you’re looking for is a simple, relatively affordable home for a small family. The main living space features a cozy living room with a sliding glass door that connects it with the front porch, as well as streaming natural light into the front of the house. (It’s a pretty unique place for a patio door, too.) The kitchen offers a simple array of appliances (stove, dishwasher, fridge) for the home chef, while the white-tile and white-cabinet design is clean, modern and uncluttered. Towards the back of the home, there are three at-grade bedrooms (one of which can be used as a home office) and a full bathroom.
If you wanted to envision family life here, the place to start might be the backyard. Two large trees offer plenty of shading, which you may find helpful if you plan on spending any time working in the built-in garden. Or maybe it’s easier to imagine relaxing in the hot tub (included) before sauntering over to the built-in fire pit. Either way, the backyard is an appealing feature for anyone who enjoys outdoor living. Two backyard sheds give you plenty of storage, too.
The basement of this home features a nearly complete basement apartment, should you want to use it for an in-law suite or rent it out for extra income. It currently has a newly built bathroom, and a corner that has been roughed in as a potential kitchen.
Big Selling Point
In lieu of flashy features, this one is a simple family home with income/in-law potential and a backyard that’s hard to ignore.
