House of the Week: $1.2 million for a renovated townhouse near Trinity Bellwoods Park
A freshly renovated townhouse located right between King and Queen West.

The dining room is inside a rear addition, making it the only room in the house with a side window:
The family room is at the back of the house:
There are two bedrooms on the second floor. Here’s one of them:

Big selling point
The interior gets lots of natural light, thanks to three large skylights.
Possible deal breaker
The house is quite narrow, and there are only two bedrooms, neither of which is particularly large. Even so, it’s a lot more living space than many other people have at their disposal in this condo-heavy part of town.
By the numbers
• $3,940.11 in taxes (2017)
• 12.5-by-120-foot lot
• 3 skylights
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 bathrooms
