Listed: Charming 2.5-Storey Detached on The Danforth Asks $1.3M
A great pocket for first-time buyers, The Danforth is one of the city’s hot spot for shopping, dining and culture — known for its authentic Greek restaurants, fresh produce markets, and unique front porches. And if you’ve been thinking about moving to this part of the city, this charming, two-and-a-half-storey detached home might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Over the last few years, the neighbourhood has transformed but is still considered to be an “affordable” area of the city, making it a very attractive option for homebuyers looking to purchase a house but still be within reach of downtown.
And with a listing price of $1.3 million, this humble abode, located at 70 Muriel Avenue, is below the current average price for a detached home in the neighbourhood, which currently sits at $1,654,992.
The stylish house has three + one bedrooms, two bathrooms and is complete with a professionally landscaped garden, and parking.
As soon as you arrive at this home, you’ll be charmed by the white and black facade, while the tiny — but sweet — wooded front porch will entice you to the front door.
Inside, you’ll find a spacious, open-concept main floor with warm and inviting features like rich hardwood floors, crown mouldings, a cozy gas fireplace built into a gorgeous white mantel, modern light fixtures, and plenty of windows that flood the home with natural light.
On this floor, you’ll find the living and dining rooms, and to the back of the home, a large eat-in kitchen with cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a sliding door that walks out to the private garden oasis, which features plenty of greenery, wood fencing, and space for multiple seating areas.
Ascend the staircase and you’ll find the bulk of the bedrooms, which feel bright and airy. The master features a large bay window and a mirrored wall-to-wall closet, which serves to make the room feel even larger. There’s also a second bedroom that also features a large closet and a window.
Journey up to the top floor and you’ll find a large open space that could be used as the fourth bedroom, an office, or even a children’s playroom. We love that this room is housed below the peaked roof, which makes it cozy yet inviting. In here you’ll also find hardwood flooring, pot lights, and a large window that overlooks the neighbourhood and beyond.
There is also a small basement, with a carpeted bedroom that has a window, as well as a small area near the stairs that the future owners could get creative with and convert it into an entertainment space or even a gym.
