House of the Week: $3 million for a heritage home in Rosedale
The Place: A large family home with tons of curb appeal in Rosedale.
Bragging Rights: Despite being a semi, this house feels incredibly spacious. It has six good-sized bedrooms and a finished basement plush enough to be used as a family room.
Big Selling Point: Though most of the home has an antique feel, the previous owners updated the kitchen and bathrooms to make them more functional for a modern family. No awkward claw-foot tubs in this house.
Possible Deal Breaker: The house is a heritage property, which means changing up the outside requires complicated political negotiations. It may sound harsh, but that’s how the neighbourhood maintains its sought-after character.

• $14,814.44 in property taxes (2014)
• 4,680 square feet
• 6 bedrooms
• 5 washrooms
