Big selling point
The courtyard’s tall fences and newly planted trees create privacy while allowing light to stream into the two-storey living room and atrium:
Also, out back, a studio space atop the two-car garage has a bathroom and a roughed in kitchenette. It could be used as a gym space, home office, or in-law suite.
Possible deal breaker
The home is a semi, which might be a deal breaker for anyone who expects a detached home in exchange for their $2.4-million outlay. But the property is, at least, on a 24.42-foot-wide lot, making this one of the wider semis in the west end.
