The place

A contemporary three-bedroom in Scarborough that’s only a 20-minute walk to the Beaches. The floor plan maximizes space, with no hallways on the main level and a galley kitchen with an island that doubles as a breakfast nook.

Here’s the living area:

The history

Two brothers—one is the property’s listing agent, and the other is a builder—snagged a run-down cottage on this lot in 2014. They knocked it down to the foundation, dug out a new basement and built an entirely new home. Now, they hope to profit.

Big selling point

This house was built with a family in mind. All three bedrooms are located on the second floor, which has two bathrooms and three sinks. There are eight-foot ceilings in the basement, which could serve as a media room or recreation room:

Bonus: the property is in the catchment area for Malvern Collegiate Institute, a highly ranked public school.

Possible deal breaker

There’s no garage here—only a parking pad with space for single vehicle. Street parking is free, though, so multi-car families can still make it work.
