House of the Week: $1.75 million for a completely renovated Victorian in Parkdale

Address: 11 Cowan Avenue
Neighbourhood: Parkdale Agents: Tracey Logan and David Patrick Bailey, Re/Max West Realty Inc., Brokerage Price: $1,749,000 Previously sold for: $990,000, in 2016

The place

A recently renovated house in an increasingly trendy part of Parkdale, near a Grant Van Gameren restaurant.

The history

The home was built in the 1880s and then converted into apartments in the 1960s. When the sellers bought the property in early 2016 they removed the additional kitchens, floor coverings and dividing walls. That revealed some of the home’s original Victorian details, like the leaded glass entry. Now, after a complete overhaul, the house is back on the market.

Here’s that entry, with all the glass:

There are three bedrooms on the second floor of the house. Here’s one of them:

The master bedroom has the third floor (and its cathedral ceilings) all to itself:

Big selling point

The bathrooms in Victorians tend to be small. Not here, where the second floor bathroom is large enough for a glass shower and a tub:

And that’s to say nothing of the sprawling master ensuite on the third floor:

Possible deal breaker

The 1,000-square-foot basement isn’t as flashy as the rest of the home.

By the numbers

• $1,749,000 • $3,621.41 in taxes (2017) • 4 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • 2 fireplaces • 1 parking space
