House of the Week: $2 million for a sprawling Humber Valley bungalow with a backyard waterfall

The house for sale at 1 Country Club Drive

Address: 1 Country Club Drive
Neighbourhood: Humber Valley
Agent: Theodore Evan Babiak, Royal Lepage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $2,048,000

The place: A sprawling four-bedroom, five-bathroom bungalow with a Californian feel, complete with its own waterfall in the backyard.

The history: Built in 1957, this home has been updated continually over the years: the kitchen was renovated in 2002, and the lower level and master bathroom were both refurbished last year. Other, less sexy updates include a new furnace, a backflow preventer and a new washer and dryer.

Big selling point: The new master bathroom has a heated tile floor, a deep soaker tub, a rainfall shower head and double sinks. A frosted barn door admits light while maintaining privacy.

Possible deal breaker: Though the kitchen is relatively new—with custom-built cherry cabinets, black granite counters and top-of-the-line appliances—anyone seeking ultra-modern marble surfaces and open shelving may need to look elsewhere.
