The property

A 4,000-square-foot home near Bloor and Bathurst. This four-bed, five-bath semi has a modern façade, with a mix of glass and brick.

The history

This house was built in 1898. It had two different owners, until 2018, when the current sellers bought it for $1.7 million. Over the next 18 months, they gutted the interior and splurged on a major reno, adding a two-storey glass window to the Edwardian façade, replacing the carpets with hardwood and converting the unfinished basement into a nanny suite.

The sale

In 2019, the sellers listed the home for $3.5 million, but didn’t get any bids. So, they dropped the price and eventually accepted an offer for $3 million from a young couple with two kids.
