On a 40-by-115-foot lot at the corner of two residential streets, this centre hall home was oriented horizontally on the land, which allowed for about 3,000 square feet of living space inside, agent Elli Davis says.
“It’s a very spacious home on three levels,” she says.
The buyer and the seller – both from England – enjoy its aesthetic appearance with a white façade, bay windows and dormers. “We used to call it the White House on the corner,” Ms. Davis says.
Within the 1930s residence, there are five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a library. There are also formal living and dining rooms – the former contains a wood-burning fireplace and the latter is decorated with wainscoting.
Most rooms feature refinished hardwood floors, though the kitchen is covered with tile.
There are four second-floor bedrooms, including a carpeted master suite with a five-piece bathroom. The fifth bedroom is on the top floor.
The lower level is finished with a fireside recreation room.
Parking is available on the driveway or in the double garage, which may be converted into living space overlooking the in-ground pool and south-facing backyard. “It’ll be beautiful because [the buyers] will be able to have a family room that opens up to the pool area,” the agent says.
Buyers were also intrigued by the premium Forest Hill location close to parks, public transit and public and private schools.
