House of the Week: $3 million for a heritage home in Rosedale


Address: 19 Maple Avenue
Neighbourhood: Rosedale-Moore Park
Agent: Susan Froese-McHardy and Don McHardy, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $2,995,000

The Place: A large family home with tons of curb appeal in Rosedale.

Bragging Rights: Despite being a semi, this house feels incredibly spacious. It has six good-sized bedrooms and a finished basement plush enough to be used as a family room.

Big Selling Point: Though most of the home has an antique feel, the previous owners updated the kitchen and bathrooms to make them more functional for a modern family. No awkward claw-foot tubs in this house.

Possible Deal Breaker: The house is a heritage property, which means changing up the outside requires complicated political negotiations. It may sound harsh, but that’s how the neighbourhood maintains its sought-after character.
