House of the week: 237 Lippincott Street
Located steps away from U of T, this home located at 237 Lippincott St. is move in-ready. The interior has been renovated to have modern conveniences without clashing with the red brick Victorian appeal of the exterior. The main living area feels spacious with large windows and wood floors. Though not large, the renovation has made the most of the kitchen with granite countertops and updated cabinets. Plenty of room to accommodate any aspiring chef.
Though the lot is narrow, the house includes a fairly substantial backyard. Plenty of room for summer barbeques or a small garden. And the property also includes a garage, not that you'll have much need of a car in this neighbourhood. With the conveniences of Bloor and Harbord just steps away, this neighbourhood is more for the pedestrian or cyclist than driver. Plenty of room for bikes in that garage, though!

U of T alums. This is probably the house you were imagining living in while you were crammed with six people in the first floor of a ramshackle house in the Annex or on Baldwin. Sure, it's only uphill from a basement apartment with no oven, but this house isn't just better in comparison. It's cute and cozy with charm of its own.
MOVE ON IF
You don't want to take a gamble on your neighbours. This is a row house, so beware of potential noise next door. You might want to investigate for crying babies or party animals next door before you make this purchase. Or maybe you can just invest in ear plugs.
