Where it is

2941 Toronto Crescent N.W.


The design

Bungalow-style homes are often smaller in square footage, making them ideal for small families or older couples. The open-floor concept in this 1967 character bungalow makes it great for ease of living and accessibility across all rooms. Bungalow homes also tend to have larger lots, which means more green space for enjoying outdoor living or entertaining during the warmer months.


What to love

Packed with charm and history, this beautifully renovated character bungalow brings a sense of welcome from the moment you step inside. The main floor features hardwood throughout, appealingly paired with an exposed brick wall feature and copper wood-burning fireplace in the joint living and dining room. With its huge windows and ample natural light, the lower-level recreation room is a great space for entertaining, or for the kids to play. Outside, the west-facing, canopy-covered backyard is a true oasis. Featuring ample space and a large seating area around a fireplace, it’s the ideal spot to enjoy time with family, sip on a late-night digestif or host some friends for a barbecue.


What to consider

Situated in the community of St. Andrews Heights, this home is within walking distance of the Foothills Hospital, McMahon Stadium and many other local amenities, making it a convenient and ideal location for just about every type of homeowner.
