The property

A four-bedroom Victorian near Ramsden Park.

The history

The sellers bought the home in 2009 for just under $2 million. They completed extensive renovations about eight years ago but preserved some of the Victorian charm, including original crown moulding and stained glass windows.

The front entrance is lovely:

And so is that stained glass. It’s original:

The living room is off the foyer:

And here’s the dining room:

The kitchen comes with some seriously high-end appliances and heated floors:

And it has basically another dining room:

The family room is on the second floor:

And so is the master bedroom:

It has its own private deck:

And a huge ensuite bathroom:

The master bathroom even has a little waiting room area next to the built-in closets:

There are two more bedrooms on the third floor. Here’s one of them:

The fate

The buyers are from the west end and want to be closer to their downtown workplaces.

The sale

The home was first listed exclusively and the sellers held more than a dozen showings before it hit Toronto’s Multiple Listing Service, the online database for property information in the GTA. It garnered two competitive offers on the first day on MLS and sold right away for asking.
