Sometimes you can tell just from the outside that a place is going to be stunning. This Victorian Cabbagetown home was fully renovated and they did a bang-up job of it.
Inside it’s all modern contemporary open concept living. The 10-foot ceilings on the main level, plus the big bay window and sleek design elements evoke loft-like living, wrapped in vintage Victorian charm.
The place is three storeys. My favourite is the third-storey master bedroom that walks out onto a balcony.
The master bedroom comes complete with his and hers walk-in closets and a showstopper of an en suite bathroom. The dark oak hardwood floors combined with the old-school freestanding tub is so luxurious!
The second floor offers three bedrooms, a four piece bathroom and a powder room. One of the bedrooms at the top of the stairs was converted into a media room.
There’s more living space in the basement with a large recreation room and some additional storage closets.
But as with every place, there’s always a weak point and for this house it’s the outdoor space. There is absolutely no lawn and the patios remind me of a treehouse. For $2 million I would haved hope there would be something other than a deck as a backyard.

Why it sold for what it did?
It’s a fully renovated 1900’s Victorian house in a great location. Houses like this always end up selling for around $2 million.
Was it worth it?
Definitely! It’s hard to go wrong with a beautifully-upgraded character home.
