House of the Week: $550,000 for a condo-sized home in the Junction Triangle

Address: 98 Edwin Avenue
Neighbourhood: Dovercourt-Wallace-Emerson-Junction
Agent: Holly Chandler and Julie Kinnear, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty, Brokerage
Price: $549,900

The Place: An updated two bedroom semi just off Dupont in the Junction Triangle.

Bragging Rights: A house in Toronto at this price point is a rare find. This property is on the small side, though, meaning some buyers may view it as a condo alternative. It comes with parking, good-sized rooms, two bathrooms, 1,200 square feet of space and a backyard.

Big Selling Point: The main floor’s open concept layout makes 625 square feet feel much more spacious than it actually is.

Possible Deal Breaker: The surrounding neighbourhood is still pretty industrial, and the house backs onto a massive storage warehouse. For some, though, that’s part of the charm of living in this part of town.
