House of the Week: 38 Ferrier Avenue
38 Ferrier Avenue is a detached home located just north of Danforth Avenue in the Playter Estates neighbourhood, which offers tons of space in a great location. The home couldn't be more convenient to the subway, schools, shops, and restaurants. Inside, the home feels spacious thanks to an open concept renovation and large windows at both the front and rear. The kitchen opens on to a large backyard. And while the yard could use some work, there's plenty of potential here.
The newly added master bedroom is definitely one of the highlights of this house. It offers way more space than you would expect from a house in this neighbourhood, while the three piece ensuite bathroom is a nice surprise. Downstairs, the basement doesn't offer enough space for a rental unit, but with a separate entrance, it's perfect for a guest room with privacy. It also could be good for teenagers sneaking in (or out) so buyer beware!

Families who want a neighbourhood feel. This three bedroom detached house offers plenty of space for a family with a couple kids. And this family friendly neighbourhood is packed full of baby and maternity stores alongside the Greek fare we all know and love. Souvlaki and onesies are a well known great combo.
MOVE ON IF
The interior of the home benefits greatly from the renovations and addition to the rear of the home. Unfortunately, the curb appeal suffers. Though the mature tree out front blocks the upper addition, through the leaves you can see it's not quite original. And it's all siding from the back. But to be honest, I'm just nitpicking at this point. You can't have it all!
