House of the Week: $1.65 million for a Little Italy semi with a backyard coach house

House of the Week: $1.65 million for a Little Italy semi with a backyard coach house

Address: 290 Palmerston Avenue
Neighbourhood: Trinity-Bellwoods
Agent: Stefani Konidis and Catherine Black, Chestnut Park Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage Price: $1,649,000

The Place: A Little Italy house with Victorian red brick charm and a fully-finished coach house out back.

Bragging Rights: When friends start comparing their carbon footprints, you’ll have the ultimate trump card: the solar panels on the roof of the house have produced 13,000 kilowatt hours of energy since March 2009.

Big Selling Point: The backyard coach house is 850 square feet of cool. Built with reclaimed brick from the old Massey Ferguson building on King Street, it contains a sitting room and library, a workout room, an office and a powder room.

Possible Deal Breaker: Though the home has already had $250,000 in renovations (including upgrades to the skylights, fireplace and kitchen), a couple of design features—like the dark green marble tile in the master bathroom—are still begging for an update.

By the Numbers: • $1,649,000 • $5,398.39 in taxes (2012) • 5 bedrooms • 4 bathrooms (including one in the coach house) • 3 levels, plus basement • 1 walk-in closet • 1 fireplace • 1 walk-in pantry • 1 coach house • 1 parking space in the garage
