Address: 671 Elias Street
Neighbourhood: Old East Village
Agent: Re/Max Hallmark A Team
A charming three-bed, one-bath bungalow ideally suited to downsizers and first-time buyers.
Do you want old-city charm or a modern new-city design? What about a great price tag? A corner lot, perhaps?
Here’s a home that really checks all those boxes. Located in Old East Village, it’s got everything you want in a core neighbourhood: character, charm and walkability. As an almost completely updated property, it’s also got a lot of new-house feel, with new flooring, new doors, tall ceilings and loads of natural light. It’s been renovated with an open-concept feel, with modern materials used throughout the kitchen and family room. The list goes on and on.
The kitchen is where this renovation will likely be most apparent. It’s been completely renovated, with high ceilings, an oversized peninsula, eat-up breakfast bar and new countertops. Cooking will be a breeze with new stainless-steel appliances (including a stove, microwave and dishwasher), a large double-sink and a lot of smart cabinet storage throughout.
The peninsula looks out to the living room and dining room, which take up most of the central area of the home. Both are well-lit, offer plenty of space for furniture and ― despite the open-concept layout ―feel cozy and separated from one another.
The home’s three bedrooms are located toward the front of the house, and each contains closet space and a window looking out to the side of the house. (One attractive option for remote workers would be to use the third bedroom a a home office).
The bathroom, like the rest of the house, has received a modern redesign, and now contains a new vanity, toilet and shower-tub combo with new tiling. The home’s new hardwood-style flooring continues through the bathroom as well. There’s also a full laundry room toward the back of the house.
There’s been exterior and mechanical upgrades as well, including a steel roof, vinyl windows and exterior trim, as well as a new furnace.
All this comes on a lot that is as much a selling point as the house itself. Right on the corner, it has a lot of yard to be crafted and landscaped to your liking. There’s a small, partially fenced backyard with a stone patio and plenty of space for gardens or backyard entertainment amenities. And at a first-time buyer friendly price, this place won’t last too long on the market.
Big Selling Point
Almost completely overhauled, this beautiful little bungalow on a corner lot is a rare find in a great neighbourhood ― and at a great price point.
