The house is on a long lot, so there’s plenty of backyard space:
Rather than clad the exterior in flat grey siding, like so many other modern homes, the owners chose to outfit this place with red brick and walnut trim. As a result, it blends in with its less modernized neighbours.

The house has four outdoor decks: one on the front porch, one on the back porch, one off the third floor and one off the largest bedroom on the second floor. Here’s the third-floor one:
Possible deal breaker
There are no parking spots, although the current owners have applied to the city for permission to add a parking pad in the front yard. Regardless, street parking is available.
