Property of the Week: $559,900 Vintage Parkside Split Level

Virtually unchanged since 1974, this home is a blast from the past.

Where it is

231 Parkside Green S.E.

The history

The property is owned by the original owner who built with Keith Homes in 1974. The four-bedroom, three-bath split level has been updated over the years, including the roof, furnace and sliding doors, but still features much of it’s original retro decor.

What to love

The interior is like a time capsule of design trends from the 1970s complete with shag carpet, ornate wallpaper and wood paneling. We were so smitten with it that we shot the fashion feature for our March issue there. Plus, the beautifully landscaped lot is steps from Fish Creek Park.

What to consider

If you’re not as enthusiastic about the 1970s decor, this home will require some updates.

1,743 square feet, not including a fully finished basement.
4 bedrooms
3 bathrooms
1 brick fireplace
Pretty patterned wallpaper
Shag carpet
Double car garage

The home includes an upstairs den separate from the formal dining and living rooms.

Pretty wallpaper is the focal point of the powder room.

Find wood paneling and rust-coloured carpet in the finished basement.

We added a TV to the console table in our March fashion shoot, but otherwise, left the rumpus room untouched.
