The place

A renovated Moss Park home with a Victorian-style exterior and two parking spaces.

The history

The home was built in 1984. A previous set of owners gutted it in 2005, at which point they installed Douglas fir beams, two skylights, a new powder room, new central air, shiny new hardwood and a huge spa tub, among other things. The only features that remain from the original home are the basement staircase and wood-burning fireplace.

The living area has a gas fireplace:

Big selling point

A two-car garage in this part of town is a rarity—and it’s especially critical at this time of year, when everyone without covered parking is spending half their mornings de-icing their rides:

Possible deal breaker

One of the bedrooms has been custom-built as an office, meaning converting it back to sleeping quarters might take some work:
