9 Withrow Avenue - RIVERDALE

9 Withrow Avenue - RIVERDALE

This is a 4+1 bedroom, 3 bathroom semi on a 20 x 130 foot lot at 9 Withrow Avenue in Riverdale.

It's a good sized house in a good location, especially if you want to be right across the street from your kid's public school...

Not the nicest streetscape, but very convenient.

Inside, it doesn't look super bright but that could just be the day the photos were taken.  The kitchen is kind of dark with the darkish cabinets, black countertops, and dark backsplash (of which I am not fan at all).

But those doors with the transom and sidelights really help to brighten it up.

Upstairs, the rooms are all a good size with a good sized bathroom that has double sinks and the third floor is all for the master suite.

The basement is finished but has pretty low ceiling heights and there is no parking.

So, as it is now, it's a good move in ready house.  But it could be an amazing house with an addition and a reno that would give a more ceiling height to the basement, a larger bathroom on the third floor with a large closet instead of that office...

And if you wanted even more space, there is room at the back for an addition.

But as I said, it's more than fine as is.

It's just that there is no parking, but that doesn't seem to be a big issue, at least not during the winter when half the city is parking on your street to go tobogganing.

The asking price is $1,189,000.

The full reno that I mentioned could cost up to $400,000, so could this be a $1.6 house?

Yes, if done right.

But considering that the 5 bedroom 4 bathrooms semi on a 19 x 137.08 foot lot down the street at 99 Withrow Avenue...

Sold for $1,358,000 in June...

It might be a stretch.

But, since this is a move-in ready house as is...

I think it will sell for ask...maybe even $1,235,000.
