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.

By the numbers

• $2,395,000 • $6,130.16 in taxes (2017) • 3,200 square feet • 4 bathrooms • 3 bedrooms • 3 parking spots • 1 fireplace
