The family room is in the basement:

The history

The house was originally built in 1981. When the sellers purchased it in 2012, they renovated the kitchen and built the backyard deck and garden. They’re world travellers from South Africa, hence the unique artwork and sculptures throughout the home.

Big selling point

The dual dining spaces, indoors and out, make this home ideal for entertaining. The outdoor dining area is covered by a retractable canvas awning:

A subtle bonus: the kitchen isn’t visible from either dining area, meaning the owners don’t have to keep it pristine while it’s in catering mode.

Possible deal breaker

The bathrooms aren’t as gleamingly modern as in some newer builds, but anyone prepared to spend $1.5 million can hopefully spare a little extra for upgrades:

By the numbers

• $1,499,000
• $5,297.39 in taxes (2016)
• 4 bedrooms
• 2 bathrooms
• 1 parking space
