20 Garden Avenue - RONCESVALLES
This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached house on a 27 x 127 foot lot with 3 parking spots at 20 Garden Avenue in Roncesvalles.
When I first saw it, I immediately thought of the house at
Both are small bungalows at the front with multi storey extensions at the back. But this house is only considered 1 1/2 storeys where the Richmond house was 3 storeys.
And this house isn't as 'new'.
As it is, it's a good move in ready house, but the floors on the first floor look a little tired and the first floor has a strange floor plan. And even though there are 3 bedrooms, this house is more for a single person or a couple (plus there is no bathtub).
But with a 2 storey extension at the back to square it off and add more bedrooms and a finished basement, this place could be amazing.
It is listed at $899,000.
A 2 or 3 storey extension with a new kitchen and a basement reno would probably cost about $400,000 (guesstimate). So, is this a $1.3 house with more bedrooms, an updated kitchen and bathrooms, a full basement, and a better floor plan?
Yes, if the reno is done right with a better flow and lots of windows at the back. Plus, it's on a good lot.
This place will probably sell closer to $913,000...maybe a little more.
