House of the Week: $2.2 million for a big family home in the Annex
The Place: An updated detached house from the early 1900s, with six bedrooms, four bathrooms and one great location.
Bragging Rights: Just south of Dupont, a touch north of Bloor and between Bathurst and Spadina, this home has major convenience working in its favour. Hit up Big Crow or Rose and Sons, or stop in at the LCBO and finish the night with a greasy meal at Vesta Lunch. It’s all ten minutes away on foot.
Big Selling Point: The sun-soaked master bedroom’s huge bay window is a great place to enjoy a morning coffee while surveying the neighbourhood below.
Possible Deal Breaker: The dining room—with wood trim, wainscoting and its own fireplace—seems likely to make this place the default destination for extended-family get-togethers. The owner should come prepared to put all those spare bedrooms to use.
By the Numbers:
