House of the Week: $1.8 million for a contemporary Baby Point home with a park view

Address: 69B Harshaw Ave
Neighbourhood: Lambton Baby Point
Agent: David Anderson Oey, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $1,775,000

The Place: A contemporary detached home backing onto Lessard Park in Baby Point Village.

Bragging Rights: Roomy terraces on the roof and in the backyard should make for great outdoor entertaining. There’s even a firepit for the colder months.

Big Selling Point: This place has spacious rooms, parking, a good-sized backyard and a great location near schools, parks and TTC. Plus, the Old Mill Hotel, with its luxurious spa, isn’t far away.

Possible Deal Breaker: The current owners have turned the basement into a serious workshop, which is great for any handymen/women who might be interested in buying the home. Buyers who are less mechanically inclined may need to paint some walls and lay down a little laminate flooring before the space feels usable as a rec room.
