The little house includes a big yard and a roomy deck

What this little bungalow in Highland Park lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in charm and stellar city views. Located on Le Gray Ave about a half-mile north of York Boulevard, the three-bedroom, two-bath home was built in 1928, though it has clearly been updated considerably since then.

The living room retains some vintage-style features, including hardwood floors, built-in shelving, and a tile-fronted fireplace. Behind it, a small dining area includes a wide panel of windows looking out onto the spacious outdoor deck and the hills and city views beyond.

The master bathroom has been recently overhauled with a new tile floor, double vanity, and large shower with overhead faucet. Meanwhile, the home’s lower level includes a studio or third bedroom with a half bathroom.

Behind the home is the above-mentioned deck, which leads down to a roomy yard with pathways and terraced gardens. Below the deck are two walkways that could be used as storage areas or transformed into further outdoor living spaces.

The 1,179-square-foot home was last purchased in 2005 for $550,000. It’s now asking $780,000.
