The history

In 2007, a previous set of owners added two floors to this 1941 bungalow. The current owners added some finishing touches, including a bedroom on the third floor:

There’s an orchard in the backyard, which, though owned by a neighbour, is accessible to 15 Shand’s owners—at least, for now.

Big selling point

Even if the fruit technically belongs to someone else, the orchard makes for a wonderful view.

Possible deal breaker

The house doesn’t have the massive square footage of other five-bedroom Kingsway homes. Still, it’s a decent amount of house for under $2 million.

By the numbers

• $1,849,000
• $9,638.50 in taxes (2016)
• 2,735 square feet
• 907-square-foot basement
• 40.29-by-100-foot lot
• 5 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 3 parking spaces
