Address: 37 Hilton Avenue
Neighbourhood: Casa Loma
Agent: Susan Froese-McHardy and Don McHardy, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $1,899,000

The Place: A completely renovated, detached four-bedroom family home near Casa Loma.

The History: A LionFish Developments project, this home was gutted in early 2015 and fitted with new windows, new heating and cooling, new electrical systems and a tankless water heater. Some of the new finishes include white-oak flooring, heated bathroom floors, Hunter Douglas blinds, a Missoni Home carpet runner on the stairs, lighting by Lambert et Fils and designer wall coverings in the bedrooms.

Big Selling Point: With eight-foot ceilings, the 822-square-foot basement is a viable living space. It adds a living room, nanny suite, fifth bathroom and spacious laundry.

Possible Deal Breaker: The third-floor bathroom seems great to have, but the pitched ceiling could make showering awkward if the new owner happens to be tall.
