A tiny shack of a Toronto home for sale at $900K hides a luxurious interior

Don't always judge a book by its cover. Or, in the case of one new real estate listing, don't judge a tiny shack-looking bungalow by its rustic exterior.

Described as a "cozy detached bungalow," this little house at 53 Regent Street in the Keelesdale-Eglinton West area might look a little rough around the edges for its sticker price of $899,000, but if you venture past its budget-looking front doors, you'll be welcomed by a gorgeous luxury interior.

Principal spaces come complete with hardwood flooring and are staged in a contemporary style, giving the relatively cozy space an airy feel.

This aesthetic carried through to a large primary bedroom that features a walk-in closet.

This basement unit comes with its own kitchen and separate laundry.

Even with the basement unit and a large yard, the house's almost $900K list price — not far below the current average Toronto home price of $1,089,428 — is a sign of just how tight the market has become in recent years.
