Address: 461 Craven Road
Neighbourhood: Greenwood-Coxwell
Agent: Stuart Sankey, Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $799,000

The place: A three-bedroom home with a cozy, cottage aesthetic.

The history: The house was built in 1910, but the owner did a total overhaul 15 years ago: he added on a new sunroom at the back, redid the kitchen and rebuilt the entire second floor in order to extend its length by six feet and add nine-foot ceilings. His rustic touches—exposed brick, wood beams and even a cast-iron stove in the living room—give the interior a Muskoka feel.

Big selling point: The retractable garage door on the second floor adds some versatility. When closed, it makes two separate bedroom spaces; when raised, it creates a massive master suite.

Possible deal breaker: There’s no powder room on the main floor, and regardless of whether the garage door is open or closed, neither of the two bedrooms upstairs has a private en suite bathroom. Still, luxe features like a two-person whirlpool tub, skylights and an open shower make the bathroom sweet enough to share.

By the numbers:

• $799,000
• $3,741.47 in taxes (2015)
• 1360 square feet, approximately
• 3 bedrooms
• 2 bathrooms
• 1 wood-burning stove
• 1 garage door in the master bedroom

The dining area is by the front door.

Also by the front door: a little office area that could double as a third bedroom.

The living room is in a rear addition with huge skylights. It has a wood-burning stove, for a little bit of cottage-like flair.

The kitchen has granite countertops and floors of Indian slate.

There are two bedrooms on the second floor of the house. This is the smaller of them, with more skylights.

Another view of that same bedroom. The master bedroom is on the other side of the garage door. The owner originally had a Murphy bed in here, so he could turn it into a guest room on demand.

Here’s the master bedroom. The garage door is visible to the right. (It has been painted to match the walls.)

The master bedroom doesn’t have an en suite, but the second-floor bathroom has some luxury features, like a two-person whirlpool tub.

The house also has a small rooftop deck, accessible by a ladder from the second floor.
