The place

A three-bedroom, five-bathroom, 2,282-square-foot home within walking distance of Trinity Bellwoods Park.

The history

The house was built in the late 1800s and purchased by the current owners in 2021. It was previously divided into rental units, and the design hadn’t been updated in decades. The owners intended to renovate and move into the home. However, they’ve since changed their minds and are looking for a buyer with a taste for luxury.

The tour

The home’s façade was refinished with painted wood over the original brick. The parking pad doubles as a front patio.

There’s also a covered porch out front.

The owners opted for a glass-walled staircase to maximize sight lines.

The kitchen, by Trevisana, comes with quartz countertops, Fisher and Paykel appliances, and a six-burner cooktop. There’s a built-in coffeemaker and speed oven (think a convection oven mixed with a microwave) to the left of the cooktop and an integrated fridge and freezer to the right.

The 11-foot-long waterfall island, also quartz, seats six. Floor-to-ceiling windows with sharp black trim were added during the renovation, enhancing the walkout to the backyard.

The powder room is just behind the kitchen. Its entrance, with ceramic tiling, functions as a mini mudroom.
