Home of the Week: $379,900 for an updated three-bedroom condo ideal for the first-time buyer
Address: 62-35 Waterman Avenue
Agent: Re/Max Hallmark A Team
An affordable three-bedroom townhome in the city’s southeast end.
Fresh on the heels of last week’s sprawling estate, this week’s Home of the Week feature swings in the other direction, with a three-bed, two-bath row home in the south end that is a perfect opportunity for first-time homebuyers, for whom truly affordable listings have become something of a rarity.
Located not far from the intersection of Wellington and Commissioners, this townhome may be a bit vanilla in comparison to other listings, but what it might lack in obvious curb appeal it makes up elsewhere. At the front of the home is the kitchen, with tons of natural light flooding in through the large front window. The kitchen itself features a double-wide fridge, dishwasher and stainless stove, as well as white shaker cabinets and a tiled floor. There’s hardwood flooring throughout the rest of the home, including in the spacious living room and dining room area ― another space that features large windows providing plenty of natural light.
The second level features more hardwood flooring, three bedrooms and a full shared bathroom, offering plenty of space for young families. Downstairs, the basement has been partially finished in the form of a rec room; the second, unfinished half of the basement provides space for a small workshop, storage or the potential to be renovated further.
The home also has a small, private backyard patio that leads out into shared complex greenspace ― a great spot to meet your neighbours ― with enough space to turn the backyard into a summer patio or to install a small garden bed.
Big Selling Point
What it forgoes in fancy bells and whistles, this property makes up for in value: a well-designed, nicely updated townhome at an affordable price that represents a healthy opportunity for someone looking to get into the market with their first home or downsize into carefree condo living.
