House of the Week: $1.9 million for a family home a block from the beach
The Place: A four-bedroom home in The Beach with landscaped gardens in the front and back.
Bragging Rights: The roomy upstairs office has a wall of bookcases and a terrace with views of the lake. Imagine showing it off to friends who battle commuter traffic to work in dreary cubicles.
Big Selling Point: Proximity to Ashbridge’s Bay Park, one of the east end’s best green spaces. The park boasts views of the CN Tower and Woodbine Beach, one of eight beaches in the city where it’s safe to swim.
Possible Deal Breaker: The current owners have turned the basement rec room into a modified home gym. If you decide to turn it back, you’ll feel guilty every time you sit down for a movie with a bowl of buttery popcorn.
By the Numbers:
• $11,142 in property taxes
• 5 bathrooms
• 4 bedrooms
• 2 landscaped gardens
• 2 upper-level terraces
• 2-car garage
