4 Jersey Avenue Toronto

House of the week: 4 Jersey Avenue

It's hip and funky and under a million at the crossroads of the Annex and Little Italy. This back alley house at 4 Jersey Avenue comes in at $739,000., which in today's pricey real estate market is a rare find. (Note: the home was listed for $649,000 just last week before upping the price significantly).

Laneway houses are an interesting breed in Toronto with many modern and cottage-style homes hidden away in the alleyways. Jersey Ave. is a mix of houses and garages, beginning just south of Bloor, backing onto Clinton, to almost College.

Like a handful of other laneways, Jersey is considered a real street and serviced by the city with water, snow removal, and, at least for now, mail delivery.

The home packs extra pizzazz into the small property. Tight and cozy at 13 feet wide, the main floor features a good size combined living/dining room, reno'd kitchen (note the vintage Honest Ed's sign above the stove), and walkout to a fenced-in backyard patio.

The second floor boasts a long, narrow hallway leading to the three bedrooms and a black spiral (walk-with-caution-when-you're-tipsy) staircase to the third floor.

Nice digs if you like back alley houses, and at this price, this house will be sold before you can say gelato.

GOOD FOR

Privacy. Living in a back alley has its advantages--it's quieter and more private than most city streets. People aren't likely to walk or drive past this cul-de-sac on a Saturday night.

MOVE ON IF

You need parking. There's no parking (or street parking) on this property. You'll have to snag a spot on Clinton Street, if you can find one.
