The history

The agent bought this property hoping to demolish the existing bungalow on the lot and replace it with a multi-storey home for his family. He started the permit process in 2014, but things didn’t go smoothly, and he ended up having to pay multiple visits to the Ontario Municipal Board. He did eventually get the house built, but now he’s moving to a farm north of the city.

There’s a fireplace in the living room:
