A chic three-bed, two-bath mid-century ranch-style bungalow in Old South.
Originally built in 1954 and tucked on a tree-covered corner lot steps away from Wortley Village, this chic bungalow in Old South offers an attractive package at a mid-range price point, perfect for a range of homeowners, from young professionals to a small family who prefer an established city neighbourhood to the suburbs to those looking to downsize from larger properties.
As you enter from the concrete front porch, the home greets you with a bold wallpapered foyer and bright hardwood flooring. To your left is the updated galley kitchen, featuring tile backsplash, a built-in gas range and separate stainless oven, a huge porcelain farmhouse sink and tons of storage space. The kitchen also includes an eat-in dining room area. Continue through this room and you’ll enter the grand living room: a cozy, charming room that centres around a stone fireplace and includes enough space for plenty of seating and a baby grand piano (which is, sadly, not included with the home).
Keep moving through the main living area and you’ll come across the den, a small TV room with vaulted ceilings and full-length windows on both sides, built in a distinctive mid-centry style and filling the room with natural light and offering a view of both the front and backyards.
The home features three bedrooms in its main sleeping wing, all with hardwood flooring and ample natural light; should you not need all three, the third bedroom could easily double as a home office or small studio space. The main floor bathroom features a jetted soaker tub, separate walk-in shower and a skylight.
In addition to the main floor, this home features a modern finished basement that provides a huge living area and TV room, with patio doors leading out to the backyard as well as several small rooms that could be used as a guest suite, home office, gym room or studio room. In addition, there’s a built-in sauna, as well as a second bathroom with a tub and shower. The basement is also roughed in for a full granny suite or rental, with wiring and plumbing for a full kitchen.
And then there’s the private, fenced-in backyard ― a real selling point for anyone who enjoys spending time outside. There’s a full wooden deck connected to the large, updated pool ― designed in a unique, L-shape that wraps around a corner of the house ― and steps down toward a stone patio and gazebo-ed outdoor living room perfect for morning coffees or evening drinks.
Big Selling Point
A house that is at once a statement piece, a design showcase and a functional home for larger families, the whole package is appealing ― but let’s be honest, it’s the gorgeous backyard you’ll probably be showing off first.
