The place

A four-bedroom, four-bathroom detached in rapidly growing Oakwood Village, sandwiched between Little Jamaica and Corso Italia. The three-storey home is a short walk from Cedarvale Park, with easy access to Eglinton West station, the St. Clair streetcar, the Dufferin bus and the coming Eglinton Crosstown.

The history

This building was a two-bedroom bungalow until 2018, when its previous owner bought the place for $750,000. The following year, they completely rebuilt it, transforming it into a modern three-storey home. A garage in the back was also torn down and replaced with a cedar deck and cabana.

The current owners acquired the revamped property for $2.1 million in 2020. They’re now cashing in to raise funds for a new investment opportunity.

The tour

The entrance leads to an elevated main floor, showcasing the dining area and its floor-to-ceiling windows.
