House of the Week: $1.1 million for a quirky, vine-covered row house in Yorkville
The Place: An 1890s Yorkville row house renovated in 1965 by architect and historical preservation advocate Joan Burt.
Bragging Rights: Unique design features like fabric wall treatments and a brass stair railing from an old Eaton’s department keep this from feeling like every other revamped townhouse.
Big Selling Point: The location is strolling distance from the Mink Mile and the leafy streets of Rosedale, our top-ranked neighbourhood in Toronto.
Possible Deal Breaker: A somewhat unusual floor plan has the kitchen and dining room on the lower level.
By The Numbers:
• $5,826.29 in property taxes (2013)
• 3 bathrooms
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 storeys
• 2-car parking
• 1 wood-burning fireplace
• 1 grand piano-sized living room
