Sale of the Week: The $1.95-million Annex home that shows a triplex’s afterlife
Address: 59 Sussex Avenue
Neighbourhood: The Annex
Agent: Ophira Sutton, Sutton Group Associates Realty Inc., Brokerage
The property: This Annex Victorian used to be a three-unit rental property. Now it’s a spacious modern home with a third-floor loft.
The history: The seller bought the triplex in 2010 and converted it into a single-family home, complete with a basement nanny suite.
The fate: The buyers are a couple with children. Coincidentally, one of their fathers had rented out one of the units in the house before the renovation, adding an element of personal history to the sale. They loved the property’s central location, and also the open layout and high ceilings.
The sale: The property was on the market for 24 days and received two offers, a few days apart. The seller accepted the second, higher offer.
By the numbers:
- $6757.92 in property taxes (2015)
- 24 days on the market
- 20.58-by-147 foot lot
- 5 bathrooms
- 3 + 2 bedrooms
- 2 parking spaces
The living room has a bay window and a little bit of exposed brick.
The house used to be divided into three separate apartments, but the seller turned it into a single-family dwelling. Now, the main floor is completely open.
Here’s the dining room.
The powder room has heated floors.
The kitchen has almost too much wine storage.
The countertops in here are marble.
