House of the Week: 451 Woodfield Road
451 Woodfield Road is a diminutive east side home that's a perfect fit for a small family on a condo budget. Only 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, you won't be left wondering how to fill space. But with the open concept plan, you can make the most of what you've got. The kitchen is renovated with a cottage-y feel, and looks over the main living area opening up the opportunity for entertaining, especially with the back deck ready for seating. Start grilling up some burgs and dogs, I'll bring the beer.
Though you may have previously thought this location was a bit of a no man's land as the bustle of the The Danforth tends to taper around Jones, new restaurants have livened this stretch of road considerably. Just a short walk away on Danforth, visit the Greenwood Smokehouse, Mother's Dumplings or The Wren, just to name a few. And The Only keeps serving up pints in classic and casual east side fashion.
Property virgins. This house is ideal for a couple or someone rolling solo. The second bedroom could be used as a nursery or kid's room, but it's equally well used as an office or library. And the asking price clocks in at well under $500,000, a seeming rarity these days. Owning a livable house suddenly seems more possible!
MOVE ON IF
This home on a "budget" comes with drawbacks. No parking spaces to start. Only one bathroom, and an unfinished basement. And the small kitchen doesn't leave room for a dining table. You'll have to leave your entertaining for the summer when you can dine on the deck. Hey! No one said living in Toronto came cheap!
