House of the week: 41 Melville Avenue

41 Melville Avenue is a house with good bones. From the outside, it looks old but in classic Toronto sort of way: unimposing, unassuming, but dignified. It's anything but an enormous house -- and some might scoff at $900K for two bedrooms -- but the upstairs loft is like it's own apartment and the basement is quite nicely finished, both of which add crucial living space to the home.

GOOD FOR

You want to move in and do nothing. This is not a fixer-upper. The home is recently renovated and the back area well landscaped. You might want to do something about the loud wallpaper in the dining room, but otherwise this place is move-in ready. The neighbourhood is, of course, also a big plus. It's highly walkable, dotted with parks (most notably Christie Pits), and proximate to both the Annex and Bloorcourt.

MOVE ON IF

You want more space. The price for this house is $899,000. While that's comparable to other houses of its size in the neighbourhood, the two bedroom limitation just won't appeal to some who need to house more than three or four bodies under one roof. That said, the basement could easily accommodate an unruly teenager better left sequestered from the rest of the family.
