6635 Lindy in Idylwood

The historic East End community of Idylwood is replete with comfy bungalows and newer homes but few could be more charming than this 1934 dwelling updated with all the right touches. Just north of inner-loop Idylwood is the Glenboork Park Golf Course which the City Council has voted to renovate as a botanical garden, providing what could be an attractive amenity to the neighborhood.

Details: While maintaining its original architectural charm, including original hardwood floors, this cozy yet sophisticated home offers a contemporary lifestyle with the possibility of three bedrooms or two bedrooms and a study. The second bedroom, accessed by a spiral staircase, is located in an upstairs attic space that also offers loads of storage space.

The updated eat-in kitchen is a natural for the light-filled dining room that opens to the living room through a graceful arch indicative of the period. Ample windows provide maximum light and the updated master bath is picture perfect for the bungalow.

The bonus here is the detached two-car garage with quaint quarters above, which could easily double as a home office. 

Square footage: 2,301.

Asking price: $465,000.
