House of the week: 208A Markham Street

This contemporary three-storey semi is south of College in the Little Italy neighbourhood. The three-bedroom at 208A Markham Street was built in 2013 by GH3 Architects, alongside an identical property. It's listed for just shy of $1.6 million.

The gentrified area has been transformed in recent years. It now features an abundance of architect-designed houses and stellar new shops along Dundas West, likely shocking grandma in her old stomping grounds. Streets like this one and the neighbouring Palmerston Avenue offers luxury condo-alternatives with backyards and detached garages.

The interior boasts an open layout, 10-foot ceilings, large windows and a deep lot extending 128 feet. The bedrooms are spacious, including a second-floor master and ensuite. The upper level features two additional bedrooms and a walkout terrace.

GOOD FOR

Urbanites who want a brand-new, move-in-ready home. The property is fitting for those who don't want the hassle of an aging 100-year-old house. With new electrical, roof and plumbing, along with rear parking, everything's in good working order - at least for now.

MOVE ON IF

You like subways more than streetcars. In this locale, you're on the streetcar line (a 24-hour streetcar line) so you can't really complain. But somedays it's more convenient to head underground, especially if it's cold outside and your streetcar still lacks a Presto machine.
