Hi.

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

Enjoy!

60 Columbine Avenue - BEACHES TRIANGLE

60 Columbine Avenue - BEACHES TRIANGLE

This is a 4+1 bedroom, 4 bathroom detached house with 1 parking spot on a 25 x 100 foot lot at 60 Columbine Avenue in the Beaches Triangle.

It is a house that looked like this when it was for sale a year ago (skip to 0:45)...

It has been flipped and is back on the market.  And for the most part, I like what they have done.

I don't get why they switched the location of the kitchen to where the dining room was.  Is there more room?  Was the powder room door taking up too much space?  I don't get it because I would have preferred the traditional layout of the dining room beside the living room but it is a good kitchen.

And how much did that full third floor dormer cost?  I get that it gives you more space and a proper third floor master suite.  But couldn't that money have been better spent on a family room addition?  Or to rearrange that back so that the bathroom wasn't in the way of a walk-out to the backyard. 

Or maybe those dormers weren't that expensive.  Anyone know?

Overall, this is a good house (with no photos of the backyard so maybe they haven't touched that).

I'm not sure what this house was listed at a year ago but I am guessing around $1.1.

A year later, it is listed at...

$1,749,000.

Is that too much for a house with no family room?  Maybe not if you can rent out that basement apartment for a good rate.

And there is Pellegrino.
