The place

This three-bed, three-bath detached was built in 1906.  The same owner has lived here for an impressive 44 years, since 1978.

Inside, there are plenty of features from the home’s original Arts and Crafts-style, including stained glass windows, a wood-burning fireplace and casement windows.

The home underwent a major renovation in 2008, when the kitchens and bathrooms were redone. That reno also included an addition with a dining room and rear mudroom.

Summerhill Station is a five-minute walk away. And since the home isn’t on a through street, it’s quiet and doesn’t get a ton of car traffic.
