The place

A three-bedroom, two-bathroom semi in Roncesvalles Village. The current owners bought this property in 2021 as a real estate investment and upgraded it immediately. It’s a short walk from Little Portugal to the east, High Park to the west, and TTC and GO lines to the north. 

The tour 

The house has a small front lawn with room for a garden and a covered porch. 

The Roncesvalles house is over 1,300 square feet.

In the foyer: marble floors and an arresting concrete accent wall. 

This home is in close proximity to the shops on Roncesvalles, as well as High Park

The owners tore down the hallway wall to create an open-concept space spanning the entire first floor.
