The place

A four-bed, three-bath detached in Baby Point. The property is a short walk from the shops on Annette as well as Old Mill and Jane subway stations. Future residents also have access to the many trails along the Humber River.

The history

Built in the 1920s, this home was purchased by its current owners for $890,000 in 2012. Then, in 2014, they completed a major renovation, adding a second storey and a garage.

Baby Point is located on a plateau overlooking the Humber and its natural oxbow formation. The neighbourhood’s mill infrastructure was crucial to Toronto’s early economy, and it was one of the city’s first garden suburbs.

The tour

The front entrance opens to this hallway with a slatted stairwell accent wall. There’s European white oak herringbone flooring throughout as well as walnut accents.
