House of the Week: $2.8 million for a Wilson Heights home on a roomy lot
Address: 9 Bowring Walk
Neighbourhood: Wilson Heights
Agents: Laureen Unroth, Re/Max Ultimate Realty Inc., Brokerage
A house on a triangular lot, with high ceilings and lots of bedrooms on a very quiet street.
There’s a formal living room with a peaked ceiling:
A similarly formal dining room:
A little crown moulding in the kitchen:
And popcorn ceilings in the family room:
There are five bedrooms. Here’s one of them:
A puppy-and-bunny-themed bedroom, complete with classic floral wallpaper border:
And the master bedroom, with a hardwood floor:
The master ensuite:
And there’s a fluorescent-lit rec room in the basement:
The irregular lot makes for a big backyard:
The home was built in the early 1990s. The lot is irregularly shaped, and it’s a little larger than most others in the area. The buyers can enjoy the large backyard or, possibly, expand or replace the existing structure.
Big selling point
The street is circular, which limits outside traffic.
Possible deal breaker
The current owner is in his late eighties, so the interior of the house reflects North Toronto’s high-end trends of a few decades ago. It may require some updating, depending on the tastes of the buyers.
