House of the Week: $3.4 million for an Annex home that looks old, but in a good way

Address: 52 Elgin Avenue
Neighbourhood: Annex
Agent: Andrew Bolton, Keller Williams Realty Centres Brokerage Price: $3,425,000

The Place: A restored heritage property in the Annex, with plenty of original features.

Bragging Rights: Well-crafted details give the house an air of permanence that most newly renovated buildings lack. The herringbone floors with brass inlay are a particularly nice touch, and so are the decorative plaster ceilings.

Big Selling Point: Although the house was originally built in 1898, it has some contemporary comforts. The Scavolini kitchen has marble countertops, and there’s also a Sonos home sound system, complete with iPad control panels.

Possible Deal Breaker: Finding parking in this part of town is a nightmare on a good day, and this home doesn’t come with a spot. Then again, with Yorkville in easy walking distance, the owners might consider giving up their wheels.

By The Numbers:

• $3,425,000 • $17,705 in property taxes (2013) • 2,800 square feet • 1,280-square-foot finished basement • 340-bottle wine cellar • 116 years old • 4 bathrooms • 4 fireplaces • 3 bedrooms • 2 storeys • 1 home sound system
