Price: $2,295,000 Size: 2,226 square feet Last renovated in: 2019 Previously sold for: $2,140,000 in 2020 Bedrooms: 3 Bathrooms: 3


The place

A three-bed, three-bath home in Cabbagetown. The property comes with an outdoor parking space next to a laneway as well as an EV charger. There are also rooftop solar panels, which the owners say cut their electricity bill in half. Future owners can walk or bus to Sherbourne and Castle Frank stations, and Riverdale Park and the Don Valley are nearby.

The history

The house is located next to the Wellesley Cottages, a row of historic workers’ homes built in the 1880s. It was renovated just before 2020. Over the pandemic, the owners purchased a cottage as a full-time residence, so they’re putting this property up for sale.

The tour

The mahogany front door—which opens to this dining area—comes with a curved transom window. The front windows have California shutters.

The dining room leads into this galley kitchen. It has a Bosch five-burner gas stove and an integrated fridge as well as a Gaggenau dishwasher. Both the backsplash and the island are marble.
