The place

A newly renovated four-bed, five-bath semi-detached home in Roncesvalles. The sellers bought this place back in 2020, when it was a two-storey house, then gutted it down to the studs.

After that, they spent over $1 million redoing the entire place, including the kitchen and bathrooms, front and back decks, and garage.

The location is great for a family, with a junior public school and High Park just minutes away, along with the shops and restaurants of Roncesvalles Avenue.
