Address: 25 Great Oak Drive
Neighbourhood: Thorncrest
Agent: Stephanie Haxhillari, Re/Max West Realty Inc., Brokerage
Price: $1,859,999

The place: A four-bedroom home with classic touches in a tree-covered pocket of Etobicoke.

The history: The home was built in 1998, but it has a traditional aesthetic: think crown moulding, wainscotting galore, hardwood floors and broadloom carpet.

Big selling point: The location is great for outdoorsy types: it’s within walking distance of half a dozen parks and very close to Islington Golf Club. (Or, the owner could always stay at home and enjoy the saltwater pool.)

Possible deal breaker: Prospective buyers might need to set aside a little extra money for help with exterior maintenance. That huge pool isn’t going to clean itself.

By the numbers:

• $1,859,999
• $10,861.01 in taxes (2015)
• 3500 square feet
• 68 feet of frontage
• 4 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 1 saltwater pool
