House of the Week: $1.25 million for a totally overhauled former rooming house in Trinity Bellwoods
The Place: A former rooming house that underwent almost two years of renovations to bring it back to its original Victorian grandeur.
Bragging Rights: Realtors often trumpet an art gallery–like atmosphere, but this place has real museum cred: the oak floors are exactly like the quarter sawn ones at the AGO.
Big Selling Point: The neighbourhood is one of the best in the city for relishing the summer. You’re a half-block from Trinity Bellwoods Park and a five-minute walk from countless patios, boutiques and bars.
Possible Deal Breaker: The next-door terrace overlooks the backyard and sun deck. Great for fostering friendships with neighbours; not so good for nude sunbathing.
By the Numbers:
• $4,352 in property taxes (estimated)
• 4 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 2 storeys
• 1 finished basement
• 1 detached garage
