It’s not often we describe a property as a “perfect family home,” but it’s also not often we come across a place as quaint — or as well-priced — as 20 Mountalan Avenue.
Sitting pretty in the Greenwood-Coxwell neighbourhood, the new listing is spacious, is complete with a deep backyard, and is asking less than $1 million — making it a winner across the board in our books.
Priced at $899,000, the three (+2) bedroom, two bathroom home features hardwood floors throughout, plus stunning details including a black fireplace in the living room and wood counter space and drawers in the kitchen.
Space-wise, the interior experience really feels like it goes on and on. Alongside the formal living room, there’s also a den that provides the perfect place to cuddle up for a movie. The kitchen is complemented by a proper dining room, and the back of the house features a large sunroom type space, ideal for setting up as a kid’s playroom or office area during the work-from-home era.
Where location is concerned, this house is situated in the crème de la crème of the east end. Mere metres away from Felstead Avenue Playground, the ability to run around and play in snow-covered fields in the winter, or set up a picnic on a warm summer night, is, truly, just steps away from the front door.
Nearly just as close is Greenwood TTC Station, as well as a long list of shops, restaurants, bars and experiences running along Danforth Avenue.
And, as winter weather doesn’t just approach but has actually already claimed its territory in Toronto for the season, we’d be remiss not to point out another major benefit this property’s boasting: a hot tub.
Indeed, the backyard is complete with an expansive deck, providing the perfect place to set up an outdoor dining set and barbecue to be enjoyed during warmer months. But today, nothing sounds more enticing than prancing to the far end of said deck and sinking into the bubbling tub that waits toward the back of the lot.
A long soak under the stars sounds like the perfect way to transition into the new home experience — one that won’t lose its charm as winter carries on and warm weather eventually comes back around.

Considering what $1 million (and more) gets you in some pockets of Toronto — you remember the shed-home, right? — to find an endearing, multi-bedroom property complete with pluses like a hot tub and proximity to a park sounds like a daydream that’s too good to be true.
As such, we’d recommend you don’t sleep on it.
