Features and Analysis

MLS listing description:

“Terrific Location. Steps To Bloor St (Trendy Restaurants, Bars & Cafes). Tons Of Potential. Renovation & Investment Opportunity. Semi Detached, Spacious 3 Bedroom, Living Room & Dining Room Have 9′ Ceilings, Detached Garage, 2 Extra Parking, Mutual Lane. Vacant With Immediate Possession. “As Is” Condition.”

Pros & cons about this property:

Despite being on a skinny 12 foot lot (but stretching 132 feet deep), this home feels much larger than it appears. A third-storey addition was added to the back of the house. The layout of the house is rather quirky and unique, with a den space in the middle of the second floor that has a series of stairs that connects to the upper levels which feels like a cozy family room or library.

There is no garage (only a parking pad in the backyard) and the house is located on a busy street. It looks like the current owners have started on a whole home renovation but stopped short – there are no baseboards or trim, there is no finished flooring in half the interior (the chipboard subfloor has been painted over, elsewhere lies dated and cheap-looking laminate), and the kitchen and bathroom is original and lacking cabinetry.

My final thoughts:

The price is both reflective of the rough and unfinished condition of the house and the sellers setting for a multiple offer situation. Although a home inspection is provided by the sellers, it wouldn’t hurt and not that much more trouble to have a more thorough inspection of inside some of the walls where the sellers have started on the renovations.


Is this similar to what you want but not the right location, budget or style?
