House of the Week: $1.3 million for a family home (with income property potential) in Bloor West Village
ADDRESS: 410 Armadale Avenue
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Runnymede-Bloor West Village-High Park North
AGENT: Michael Alexander Moore, Tradeworld Realty
THE PLACE: A five-bedroom brick home in Bloor West Village with a newly renovated, open-concept interior.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: You’re steps away from the chi-chi enclave of Baby Point, but if fancy houses don’t impress you much, the Humber River and Etienne Brulé Park are also just a few streets over.
BIG SELLING POINT: Flexibility. The primary living areas are located on the second and third floors, which means that, though the home is currently set up as a single-family dwelling, the main floor and basement could be converted to a second unit with little fuss.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Open-plan living spaces are all the rage, but they’re not always ideal. For instance, when you’re not getting along with your partner, you might want a private space to retreat to (or a door to slam to make your point).
