In Upper Forest Hill Village, this two-storey house is an ideal property for a couple looking to raise kids in a family-friendly community filled with libraries, parks, trails and recreation facilities.
But more importantly, it is close to desirable schools, such as Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, agent Elli Davis says. “That was the [main] motivation for the buyers because they have children going to the school.”
For more than four decades, the same family occupied the brick house, which contains a traditional centre hall plan, complete with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
“You don’t get too many four-bedroom [properties] in that price range,” Ms. Davis says. “It was well maintained over the years.”
Flooring varies throughout, from hardwood in the fireside living room to linoleum tiles in the dining room to laminate in the eat-in kitchen.
The latter is equipped with several appliances, including a new dishwasher.
Also on the main level are a powder room and a den with a walkout to a deck.
In the basement there is a recreation room with panelled walls.
Assets outside include a spacious lot with a fully fenced backyard and long driveway off to the side.
