If you’ve always wished you could live in a cottage but don’t want to move out of the city, this Toronto house that just hit the market could be exactly what you’re looking for.

This little cottage in the city is located at 51 Ennerdale Road in the Caledonia-Fairbank area of Toronto and was recently listed for $799,900.

It’s a fully renovated one-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow with even more natural wood touches inside.

The main floor of the house has a good-sized kitchen and living area that has walk-out access to the backyard. It also features two skylights to let in plenty of natural light.

Down in the basement is another living area, a built-in desk — convenient for those working from home — and a large bedroom. With the bedroom being in the basement, the buyer would have to be okay with having small basement windows and lower ceilings in that room.

And for anyone worried about the basement’s concrete flooring being too cold, there’s no need to be because it comes with an in-floor heating system.

The backyard, although narrow, fits a deck, barbecue, several planters, and even has a storage shed at the back.

Although the home may not be for everyone, Zoocasa agent Claudio Castro says that it has a number of features that make it a great property.

“Definitely a rare opportunity to own a detached property, with a legal front parking pad, in the city for less than seven figures,” Castro said. “The fact that you will be paying lower annual property taxes is a plus. Also, since the home is fully renovated, and small, [it] means maintaining it will also be easier. A very good option for both first-time homebuyers or downsizers.”

Having a cottage to escape to is great, but for someone who wants the best of both worlds, this house could be a perfect fit.
