House of the Week: $1.3 million for a former munitions warehouse in a Junction Triangle laneway
Address: 350 Wallace Avenue
Agent: Richard Silver, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Brokerage
The Place: A renovated former munitions warehouse from the 1850s, tucked into a laneway in the Junction Triangle.
Bragging Rights: This house once hosted Meg Ryan. It doubled as a movie studio while she was filming 2004’s Against the Ropes.
Big Selling Point: The main-floor open-concept studio space is equipped with a kitchen and bathroom, making it ideal as a home office, or even as a potential rental unit.
Possible Deal Breaker: The layout and design of the ex-industrial space are a little unusual. The new owners will have a home-decorating challenge ahead of them.
By the Numbers:
• $6,210.36 in property taxes (2013)
• 3,400 square feet
• 3 bedrooms
• 3 washrooms
• 2 storeys
• 2 kitchens
• 2 skylights
• 2-car parking
• 1 movie-star anecdote

Lots of potential,but wow, what a mess. How much money should you put into a house on Wallace near the tracks?
That painting of the woman squeezing her boobs is hilarious but it looks like a failed musician is currently occupying this space. The Chinese characters on the wall make this look like a rice rocket circa 1998.
No lot size?
what a hot mess… and then you have to pay over $1mil to do the renovations.. the kitchen is nice, just needs some sunlight but overall…WTF is this ?!
The kitchen is fantastic; this modern style
makes it look wonderful! But there are so many things there, that sometimes it makes
an impression of a messy and cluttered house. It’s my opinion. The furniture is
good, the rooms are spacious but something is wrong here, too many things to my
mind. I’m not a minimalist, but in this case I’d rather get rid of some things.
