This 1889 Victorian semi-detached house wasn’t quite as impressive when the owners bought it in 2016.
Real estate agent Lirad Kligman told blogTO that the young family bought it for just over $1 million, and looking at old listing photos, it was a bit of a mess.
But clearly, they saw the potential.
In 2020, Kligman explained that they completely rebuilt the house and spent nearly $1.7 million on renovations.
“Every room, including all four bedrooms and four bathrooms, has been completely custom-designed with the highest quality Victorian marble, millwork and trim,” Kligman said.
The result is a magnificent Victorian house with lots of character.
“It’s absolutely stunning and it’s a perfect family home,” Kligman added.
Listed at $2,995,000, the home is bright, airy, the perfect blend of classic and modern style.
The main floor is open plan with beautiful white oak herringbone wood floors, high ceilings and details like coffered ceilings, stained glass and wainscoting bringing in the historic elements of the house.
The kitchen is top of the line with Wolf and Sub Zero appliances as well as marble countertops.
The living room at the back of the house gets lots of natural light thanks to the large floor-to-ceiling industrial sliding doors.
The bedrooms are upstairs, three of them being on the second floor, while the master bedroom takes up the entire third level.
The master bedroom has a dressing room, a superb adjoining bathroom and a balcony.
There is more living space in the basement with an additional bedroom that could be used as a home office while the family room has a wet bar.
Outdoor space is perhaps the only downside to this home as it is essentially a driveway, but there is room to sit if you are so inclined.
If you want some green space, the house is a few blocks from Wellesley Park.
But who needs outdoor space when you have a house that looks like this?
