House of the Week: $1.5 million for a century-old home in North Rosedale

House of the Week: $1.5 million for a century-old home in North Rosedale

Address: 36 Standish Avenue
Neighbourhood: Rosedale-Moore Park Agent: Gillian Oxley and Joseph Robert, Royal LePage R.E.S. Ltd./J&D Division, Brokerage Price: $1,549,000

The Place: A newly renovated home with sturdy bones—it was built in 1911—and major curb appeal, in North Rosedale.

Bragging Rights: The main floor offers a perfect place to entertain. There are built-in cabinets near the dining area, high-end Viking appliances, wide-planked wood flooring (red wine spills aren’t a worry), a gas fireplace (or right above, for those who’d rather watch a chicken turning than a fire burning, a spot for a television) and French doors that open out into the backyard.

Big Selling Point: Located on a quiet street near the Summerhill Market and Chorley Park, this home is also walking distance from the Moore Park Ravine and Evergreen Brick Works. These are just some of the perks of living in leafy Rosedale.

Possible Deal Breaker: Though the ceilings on the second floor are of standard height, the slanted corners may be tough for interior designers to work with (though they have been used advantageously in the master bathroom, where strategically placed windows allow the sun in while keeping prying eyes out).

By the Numbers:

• $1,549,000 • $6,524 (2013 taxes) • 25-by-136-foot lot • 4 bedrooms • 4 bathrooms • 113 years old (with a two-year-old renovation) • 1 fireplace
