Despite all the fancy contemporary homes in Toronto you see listed on the market, not everyone wants a slick minimalist space to call home. For people out there who like historical character in a property, this listing at 17 Wells Hill Avenue is sure to stick out.
It's a stately old Toronto home done in the Tudor style located around the corner from Casa Loma in a neighbourhood that's known for a huge tree canopy and wonderfully quiet streets.
Inside, there's wood everywhere, which exudes a sense of warmth that's only broken in the various white-painted sun rooms, which offer a somewhat stark but not undesirable contrast to the rest of the space.
To qualify as a dream home, this property could probably use an update to some of the bedrooms and the basement. The master bedroom and en suite have been renovated, but the other rooms could use a bit of polish to bring them inline with the rest of the house.

Move On If
Walkability matters to you. For all its benefits, the Casa Loma neighbourhood ranks quite poorly when it comes to walkable amenities. Transit access is decent, but you're going to be driving a lot here.
