House of the Week: $1.4 million for a faux-Victorian with a rooftop terrace in the Annex
The Place: A red-brick semi beside Alan Powell Lane. It’s walking distance from Koreatown, Mirvish Village and U of T.
Bragging Rights: Though its exterior resembles those of other Victorian homes in the Annex, this place was built in 1998. The buyer probably won’t have to worry about the types of maintenance issues that tend to come with age.
Big Selling Point: The third-floor den has cozy, angled ceilings and a high-walled terrace, which makes it an ideal getaway in both winter and summer.
Possible Deal Breaker: The basement has two entrances, which makes it perfect as a nanny suite. But if the buyers have any mischievous kids, they may want to monitor the back door somehow.
By the Numbers:
• $6,305 in taxes (2014)
• 16 years old
• 5 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 3 storeys
• 2 entrances to the lower-level suite
• 1 rooftop terrace
