Address: 248 Roxton Road
Neighbourhood: Trinity-Bellwoods
Agent: Carl Langschmidt, Royal Lepage Your Community Realty
Price: $1,299,000

The Place: A three-bedroom, three-washroom, newly renovated semi-detached house near College and Ossington.

Bragging Rights: The large kitchen is designed with entertaining in mind (check out the four-seat island and the easy access to the backyard). Plus, the enormous fridge has enough room inside to keep beers and several racks of ribs at the ready for summer barbecues.

Big Selling Point: This home is just a few houses north of College Street. If, miracle of miracles, the sale somehow closes before June 13th, the buyer will have a perfect place from which to enjoy this year’s Taste of Little Italy.

Possible Deal Breaker: At 16.5 feet wide, the property is typical of Victorian semis in the area (and bright and airy enough to feel wider), but anyone looking for a little more square footage may need to broaden their search.

• $1,299,000

• 2079-square-foot lot
