The place

A renovated three-storey semi in midtown Toronto.

The history

The hosts, a young family, bought the century-old house in 2010. They kept the brick structure, but gutted the first two floors. It’s their full-time home, so they only rent it out while they’re travelling.

The place is exceptionally bright. The reupholstered love seats used to belong to the hosts’ grandmother. A fig tree and some Moroccan carpets add visual appeal:

The kitchen has a Carrara marble island and backsplash, and a 20-foot sliding door system that opens onto the backyard:

Here’s a view of the large eating area, with a built-in bench:

The second floor has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a den. This is the master, which has a king-sized bed:

It also has a five-piece ensuite, complete with rain shower:

Here’s the other bedroom, with a queen-sized bed:

And the second-floor den, which has a fireplace and TV:

The two kids’ rooms are on the third floor. Here’s one of them, with a fancy teepee:

The washer and dryer are in one of the second-floor bathrooms:

The sizeable backyard comes with some chic patio furniture:

Major perks

The home has a great balance of luxurious touches and practical essentials. The owners will be away over Christmas break, making this a prime place to store out-of-town relatives.

Possible deal breaker

It’s possible that a young family will have a touch more clutter in their home than what’s shown in these photos.
