House of the Week: 10 Dault Road

Posted by Robyn Urback / March 19, 2013

10 Dault Road TorontoNo, this isn't a sprawling, multimillion-dollar McMansion. (For that sort of thing, check out last week's post.) But who says small packages (or rather, mortgages) can't offer a little charm? This east-end home is ideal for fat-cats who are stuck in the skinny-stray stage, offering great views and designer perks without the seven-figure deposit.

10 Dault Road TorontoSPECS:

Address: 10 Dault Road
Price: $649,900
Lot size: 65.00x70.75
Storeys: 2
Bedrooms: 2+1
Bathrooms: 2
Parking spaces: 2
Walkouts: 3

10 Dault Road TorontoNOTABLE FEATURES:

Wrought iron gate entry
Mature trees
Seasonal lakeviews
Stainless steel appliances
Quartz kitchen island
French doors
Skylights
Infrared sauna

10 Dault Road TorontoGOOD FOR:

Nature lovers, Bluffs lovers, those who want to bathe under the stars (or "star" — this is Toronto, after all). Good for those who envision a starter home as something more than a 23rd floor one-bed-plus-den.

10 Dault Road TorontoMOVE ON IF:

You have an anti-Scarborough-and-vicinity bias. You realize all of that green will be grey and/or absent for most of the year.

Have a friend who bought a home with open shelves in the kitchen, great design, but a year later they were replaced with closed glass fronted cabinets. As he said I have more everyday stuff then pretty glassware. Difficult to tell but is looks like the place has several quirky design elements.

THAT BATHROOM. I would have parties in that bathroom. I would buy this for the bathroom alone.

The place is probably smaller than it looks, though...but the big trees are gorgeous.

I suspect there are more than a few quirks with this place. It was listed over the winter, didn't sell, disappeared for a few weeks, and now has been re-listed.

Take a closer look at that bathroom. Is there enough headroom to stand up by the sink and toilet?

Maybe it's the photos but it looks really small, as in low ceilings, plus that nook looks really cramped.

It's staged beautifully, and as a starter home, the price is reasonable...but as Ford4ever pointed out, as a tall person, i don't want to crouch to use the washroom. That bathroom ceiling looks AWFULLY low.

Cute home though- worth taking a drive out to look.

I would not buy this. This is way too far out in the east for the price tag. You can buy better homes than this a little closer to the core. The design elements look pretty on a photo, but for me practicality has to trump design - and practicality seems a little lacking here.

Beautiful house but would have perpetual concussions from using bathroom for midgets.

Beautifully designed house but the lot size is tiny

I would absolutely buy this if the price was $350, 000 lower! ;)

@ Fritz, I'm not sure what your point is, but 'women' is the plural form of the word 'woman', which is a different word altogether. Like men and man, for example.

This error always amazes me when I see it, almost as much as not knowing that 'then' and 'than' are two different words. I suppose such errors must be the result of a lack of enunciation.

Whoah: check google street view. Looks like some nasty neighbours just a few doors away...

I would take my 6.5 and buy a condo in heart of the city with tearrace I can barbq on and don't have to rake leaves and clean bird poo from all those beautiful trees.

This house is way too green, in an ugly-like-hospital-green-paint way.

It's cute in a whimsical granny kind of way. Too bad the neighbours are hoarders though...

How the hell can a $650,000 home be classified as a "starter home". Is this really what Toronto real estate has come to? Two people with normal paying jobs can no longer afford to buy ANYTHING here. It's a shame, because this is a great city, but the average person is being totally priced out of the city. Even condos are too expensive now.

Wow! Love everything about this place!

Dear Googs, as much as it sucks, it's time that Canadians learn that not everybody is and will be able to be a house owner. It's not personal, but I see all the time: people making 50k and complaining that they are not able to afford a house. Not everybody can be an owner, and only because the generation of boomers was able to afford to own, does not mean that our generation is entitled to expect the same.

There's probably going to be a bust. Save your money and wait.

One of the best things I had ever ordered for the baby's rooms is a high bunk style bed with space with a desk/play space under it. Our kids love going to bed up high and I love that we've been using any and all of the space.
