A house doesn't have to be huge to be swoon-worthy. After all, the larger a spot's square-footage, the more there is to clean!
This newly-listed bungalow in Scarborough gets it, and is making a strong case for smaller abodes. The little brick house, which isn't boasting its exact size, sits atop a large, 140-sq. ft. lot in Cliffside Village. Asking $749,000, the property is located in walkable surroundings; shops and necessities are nearby while downtown is only 20 minutes away via transit.
All-new electrical and plumbing flow through the compact space which, by means of large windows and sleek, minimal design, maintains a sense of airiness. The vibe continues in the modern, open-concept kitchen, which overlooks the cozy living and lounge area. Here, and through the rest of the home, LED pot lights make each room glow in an ultra-hygge fashion.
Two bedrooms and two bathrooms mean this space is perfectly suited for a young family, or for a couple hoping to convert one room into a work-from-home station. Downstairs, the waterproofed basement features hydronic heated and polished concrete floors, and could easily be transformed into an additional bedroom, an at-home office, or a rec space for the kiddos.
And speaking of kids, if little ones are running around, they're sure to adore the vast backyard space on this property... but they won't be the only ones. Adults, too, will find much joy in outdoor dinners, afternoons in the garden, building snowmen in the winter, and basking in the July sun.
Tucked away on a quiet street, this home is mere steps from the amenities of Kingston Road. From bigger-box favourites like No Frills, Starbucks, and KFC, to more niche offerings like Cliffside Village Books or Scarborough Animal Hospital, accessibility is optimal from 145 McIntosh.
