In 2020, 1356 Oak Lane sold for $3 million, which is already extravagant for a three-bedroom, three-bathroom bungalow.
But if we’re being honest, it was sold at lot value as the house sits on nearly five acres of land in Lorne Park.
“Truly a unique property with the option to build your dream home or possibly split into two lots!” reads the 2020 list.
Now, two years later, the home is listing for $4,288,000 and the listing still reads, “Truly a one-of-a-kind property with the option to build your dream home or possibly separate into two lots!”
If there is a $1 million jump in price, the house has usually been renovated or something. But nothing, and I mean nothing, has been done about this house to improve the property.
In fact, according to the photos, the house has probably been empty for the past two years. If anything, it’s in worse shape now than it was in 2020.
And although the listing states that the house comes in “as is” condition, that condition is – to put it nicely – passé.
The interior has dated wallpaper, odd colored carpets and lots of wood paneling in the living room.
Although the living room could be so dated, it’s coming back in style again. The vaulted ceilings are quite impressive.
The kitchen is unsurprisingly dated but surprisingly very small for a property in this price range.
There are also some strange things in the house, such as For example, a hot tub in the middle of a carpeted bedroom, or a stove in the middle of a wall. Why?!
But no matter how weird or out of style the decor is, it doesn’t matter because this home is still being sold at lot value.
And apparently real estate prices have gone up 30 percent in two years — or at least at 1356 Oak Lane.
