The place

A furnished three-bedroom townhouse near Kensington Market.

The history

A previous owner preserved the house’s 136-year-old heritage exterior while completely renovating the interior, with design assistance from Toronto-based Mazen Studio. The current owner took possession in 2016 and is leasing the place out while travelling.

Here’s the entry. The herringbone floors are oak:

Possible deal breaker

Anyone who loves older homes might find the clash between the Victorian exterior and the modern interior to be a bit of a bait and switch. But everyone else will love the new amenities and non-creaky floors.
