House of the Week: $6.8 million for a sprawling Rosedale bungalow
The Place: A 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom mid-century-style bungalow in the heart of Rosedale.
Bragging Rights: The backyard is not only well manicured, it has that ever-so-important staple of summer, a private pool. Whenever the temperatures spike—and they’re sure to do so eventually—the owner will be glad to have it.
Big Selling Point: Even for Rosedale, this is an expansive lot. It comprises 142 feet of frontage and a whopping 340 feet of depth (that’s over an acre of property, or 4,485 square metres for the metric system fanatics) in the center of the city.
Possible Deal Breaker: The floor-to-ceiling windows that let in all those beautiful garden views are not made for smudges. Follow Martha Stewart’s “simple” 8-step window-washing method for the best results. (Or, you know, get a hose and some Windex, whatever works.)
By the Numbers:
• 37,126 in taxes (2013)
• 4,485 square metres of land
• 5 bedrooms
• 3 baths
• 1 floor, for the most part
• 1 backyard pool
