Miranda's Pick!

PROPERTY:  1376 Paul St in Lakeview, Oshawa

WHY IT'S A COOL FIND:  A very well laid out bungalow with spacious bedrooms and an open concept kitchen plan. Original hardwood throughout that is incredible condition! The greatest feature of this house was the basement - it's massive and has excellent ceiling height. Great potential! Many young families are moving into the area and updating the older bungalows. A great place to invest in as house prices are on the rise!

PRICE RANGE:  This house was priced at $280,000 and received 14 offers on offer night.  It sold for $350,000.  Oshawa is experiencing a very busy winter market with nearly all properties in this price range going into multiple offers.  Due to the 407 expansion into Oshawa and increasing price points in Toronto, Oshawa is becoming increasingly popular as a commuter city.

COOL FEATURES:  The basement could easily be converted into an income suite or can be used as a huge family room.  It is currently set up as a game's room with a separate bedroom at the back of home.  There is a lovely back deck that is perfect for entertaining.  Loads of parking & a huge kid's park & splash pad is just a stone's throw away from the home.  Paul St is a tiny street so it feels very intimate & quiet.  Being on a corner lot makes this home extremely bright! Big windows and lots of sunlight shining in!

THE AREA:  Lakeview is a lovely pocket of Oshawa that many people may not be aware of! This home is just North of Lakeview Park which is a huge waterfront park with so much to do!  It has a beautiful boardwalk, ample walking paths, a beautiful sandy beach, picnic areas and parks & splash pads for the kids!
