About the Property
When this home was last purchased, in 1973, the world was a very different place. The kids raised there saw the first walkman, the arrival of the home computer, the compact disk, the internet! A lot has changed. But the desire to buy a place and create the life you want with it has not. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath bungalow is full of potential.
The large lot is perfect for someone who wants to tear down and rebuild, or someone who wants to expand the current home and keep a large lawn area for kids or pets.
The home isn’t the space that some first-time buyers are dreaming about, but it is in livable condition for someone who’s looking to get into the market and renovate later, or over time. The finished side is perfect for a rec room, with laundry and storage in the rest of the space.
You’ll also have 2 car parking on a long driveway, in this quiet, family-friendly neighbourhood.
3 Best Things About This Home?
1. Location, location, location – Birchcliffe is an amazing neighbourhood with amazing schools and good transit. Easy access to Victoria Park or Warden subway stations.

3. Priced for possibilities – you can get into a great neighbourhood at an accessible price & renovate. Or you can choose to top-up or tear down to make something new.
