House of the Week: $2.9 million for a heritage Annex home with a decidedly un-heritage interior
The Place: A three-bedroom Annex home that’s business in the front, party in the back.
Bragging Rights: This home, a heritage property overhauled by local design firm Superkül, attempts to harmonize a contemporary interior with a historical facade.
Big Selling Point: From the street, the home looks like a tiny 19th-century cottage. The interior, meanwhile, is surprisingly spacious, with open-concept rooms and contemporary woodwork that seems bound to please potential buyers.
Possible Deal Breaker: The selling agents believe this property’s unique mix of old and new has left some buyers confused. It has been on the market since February.
By The Numbers:
• $12,872 in property taxes (2014)
• 4 washrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 3 levels
• 2 skylights
• 2 gas fireplaces
• 1 finished basement
• 1 heritage designation
• 1 parking space
