This mid-century $ 3 million bungalow in Toronto looks like it belongs in Palm Springs

While it is not easy to escape from Toronto for a much needed vacation these days, making your home your dream vacation destination is a viable alternative.

And that may be exactly what the current owners of 87 Berkinshaw Crescent did.

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom bungalow looks like it’s inspired by the mid-century bungalows that are everywhere in Palm Springs. 87 Berkinshaw Cres.  Toronto

The living room with gas fireplace and integrated storage.

The home is listed for $ 2,999,000 and has stunning vaulted ceilings lined with red cedar, lots of natural light and a light and airy feel that definitely feels at odds with the current weather.

The home was completely renovated in 2012, and the only thing that may not have really stood the test of time are the bathrooms. While they are certainly still fine, some might feel that they are a bit dated in terms of style. 87 Berkinshaw Cres.  Toronto

The dining area in the kitchen.

Everything else is just in trend.

The living room.

The living room is the coziest room with fireplace and the warm wooden ceilings as well as the beautiful wide plank-white oak floor, which you can see throughout the home.

The soaring vaulted ceilings are a true focal point of the house.

Two of the three bedrooms on the lower level are part of a complete basement suite that has a separate entrance.

The rear terrace.

But perhaps the biggest flex of this home is its award-winning backyard that was featured in House & Home Magazine.

The private backyard is surrounded by trees.

It has a bit of a desert oasis feel with slate and gravel mixed with large plant boxes of tropical plants. It all comes together to make you feel like you have been transported.

But if you do not have $ 3 million to spend on a house that looks like it is in Palm Springs, you can take comfort in knowing that as your travel guide increases, you can see the real deal for as little as $ 242. .
