The place

An extensively renovated bungalow at Avenue and Lawrence with an eclectic interior and an oversized backyard.

The history

The home was built in 1945, and the seller bought it in 2017. He used the space for television production and filming before renovating it last year.

Here’s the living and dining area. It has a natural gas fireplace and two custom chandeliers:

Big selling point

The backyard has mature trees, a canopied hot tub and extensive landscaping, making it quite the setting for entertaining. There’s ample garden space in the front yard, too.

Possible deal breaker

The statement wallpaper and blended rustic and modern design may be too brazen for buyers looking for a more traditional style.
