The house was originally a ranch bungalow built in 1959. When its present owners—a 40-something couple with two young daughters—bought the place in 2013, it had already been rebuilt: the interior, including the basement, had been gutted, a two-storey addition had been built at the back of the house, and the front exterior had been changed from brick to stone. The owners expanded the size of the patio and upgraded the fence in the backyard. They are relocating to New York this summer for work; they have jobs in the alcohol business. They are looking for an executive with a family who will commit to, at minimum, a one-year lease.
The ground and second floor offer 3,197 square feet, which is bigger than the usual Sunnylea home, as well as 14-foot ceilings with crown moulding. There’s also plenty of outdoor space for summer parties: a balcony, a deck, a patio and a fire pit.
Possible deal breaker
Not every family (or, specifically, teenage boy) will dig the colour schemes in the kids’ bedrooms.
