The history

The current owners bought the property in 2012, when it was a two-bedroom bungalow. They retained three brick walls, but replaced the rest. Now, there’s a second storey and a rear addition, making this place big enough for a family.

Big selling point

The kitchen is ideal for entertaining, with both an island and eat-in seating, dual ovens, easy access to the terrace and an oversized pantry for tons of storage:

Possible deal breaker

Though there are five of them, the bedrooms aren’t as spacious as many homeowners seem to expect these days. If the buyer is after a master suite that sprawls across an entire floor, they may want to look elsewhere.

By the numbers

• $1,539,000
• $7,423.23 in taxes (2016)
• 5 bedrooms
• 5-year-old renovation
• 4 bathrooms
• 1 parking space
