House of the Week: $1.5 million for a restored Victorian in Cabbagetown
The Place: A restored Victorian row house in Cabbagetown that was originally built in 1885.
Bragging Rights: The home is a classic example of an inner city Victorian, and its period-friendly updates have landed it in the pages of Style at Home.
Big Selling Point: A smart layout makes the 19-foot-wide lot feel spacious: every bedroom has an ensuite and there are three communal living areas.
Possible Deal Breaker: Historical details, like leaded glass windows and plaster mouldings, are preserved on the main floor. Much of the home’s character disappears, however, once you go upstairs.
By The Numbers:
• $5,861 in property taxes (2013)
• 4 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 2 built-in espresso machines
• 2 wood-burning fireplace
• 2 skylights
• 2 terraces
