371 Parkside Drive - RONCESVALLES/HIGH PARK
That was fast!
In December, I posted this house at 371 Parkside Drive over looking High Park in Roncesvalles (or High Park depending on who you ask).
It looked like this...
And it was a gutter. In fact, half of it had already been 'gutted'...
Or more like it was just in really bad shape.
It was listed at the beginning of December for $859,000.
Considering the potential of this house on a 40 x 122 foot lot, I thought this would sell way over ask.
It has now been flipped and is back on the market.
And though the flip is fine, it's not what I was expecting. It's a little new build-ish. There wasn't a lot of character to keep in this house, but they didn't keep anything (except that stained glass window).
I don't get why they didn't keep the living room/dining room layout. Instead, they got rid of the dining room and put in a powder room box in the middle of the first floor. It's really awkward.
Upstairs, it's kind of hard to tell what's going on, but it does look new build-y as well.
Basically, I am not as excited as I had hoped I would be.
The inside actually kind of reminds me of the flip at 161 High Park Avenue...
The new asking price for this house is...
This wasn't a $780,000 reno, but the price isn't crazy.
I don't think it will sit for long, but I think it will sell just under ask.
