House of the Week: $750,000 for a Little Portugal row house with the perfect artist’s garret
The Place: An airy row house from the 1870s in the trendy neighbourhood near Dundas and Dufferin.
Bragging Rights: The backyard, though small, contains a mature blossoming cherry tree and cozy nooks ideal for summer cookouts. You’ll never have to lug blankets and beers to nearby Trinity Bellwoods again.
Big Selling Point: The current owners—who love the house but have outgrown it—put a ton of work into it, which means there won’t be a long list of maintenance issues to tackle after moving in.
Possible Deal Breaker: The cute attic, with its two sunlights and reclaimed oak flooring, can only be accessed by a ladder. Fun for the spry, but it may be a pain for those with less physical prowess.
