Welcome to the MASH where we gossip about current real estate listings.


399 Pine Avenue - OAKVILLE

399 Pine Avenue - OAKVILLE

This is a 4+1 bedroom, 3 bathroom house on a 50 x 140.5 foot lot with 1 garage parking spot and 3 other spots at 339 Pine Avenue in Oakville.

And though you might not recognize the outside, if you read this issue of Style at Home magazine in January 2013...

Or if you are into design blogs like Apartment Therapy or One King's Lane or Style Me Pretty Living...

Or if you are on Pinterest and have seen this photo once or twice...

Or this...

You might recognize this house.

Because it is the home of Christine Dovey...

A designer and the author of the popular blog Bijou and Boheme.

And though the house doesn't look super large, it looks amazing.

The kitchen was redone in 2013 with the help of designer Meredith Heron.  The bathroom has had a recent renovation...

And basically, the house is a really great house top to bottom (that basement does not look like a basement).

But what happens when all that furniture and art is gone?  

It's still a good house.  

I am not sure if it comes with the light fixtures or not because the listing doesn't make it clear.  But it does say...

There are 3 more bedrooms on the second floor, each with unique details such as designer wallpaper, dormered ceilings, fabulous light fixtures & custom draperies.

That sounds like they are including the light fixtures and the draperies, doesn't it?  

But if they aren't including them...

Because this house is being sold on the fact that this is the home of a specific designer and the light fixtures and the drapes are part of what might draw people to this house.

But as I mentioned, it is still a good house with everything gone.

It is listed at $1,379,000.

It's located across the street from a large apartment building which isn't awesome...

And it backs onto a busy street..

Which isn't great. 

But if that doesn't bother you, this is a good price for a done house on a big lot with 4 bedrooms.

And who knows, if they are throwing in the light fixtures and the drapes...

 Maybe they will throw in some of the furntiure and art as well!
