House of the Week: $990,000 for a Moss Park semi with a mansard roof

House of the Week: $990,000 for a Moss Park semi with a mansard roof

Address: 386 Berkeley Street
Neighbourhood: Moss Park Agent: Suzanne Catherine Lewis, Keller Williams Advantage Realty, Brokerage Price: $989,000

The Place: A three-bedroom, four-bathroom brick semi on a very desirable stretch of Berkeley Street in Moss Park.

The History: This home was built in 1880, and it still has some of its original exterior details—most notably the red-brick facade and striking mansard roof with cedar shingles. A total gut job in the 1980s updated the interior, and the current owners added the skylights and renovated the two upstairs bathrooms.

Big Selling Point: There are two working kitchens, one on the main floor and the other in the basement. It’s a perfect setup for families that keep strictly kosher, or that have heavy-duty entertaining needs. (Thanksgiving meals come together so much more easily with several ovens, after all.) Or, the new owner could cordon off the basement and have a ready-made rental unit.

Possible Deal Breaker: The baby-pink bathroom in the basement is so kitchy it almost qualifies as retro. It could probably stand to be updated.

By the Numbers:

• $989,000 • $4,699.55 in taxes (2015) • 135 years old • 4 bathrooms • 3 bedrooms • 2 parking spaces • 1 wood-burning fireplace
