Address: 183 Willow Avenue
Neighbourhood: The Beaches Agents: Rick and Rochelle Declute, Declute Real Estate Inc., Brokerage Price: $1,388,000 Previously sold for: $470,000 in 2005

The place

A large semi, located a few minutes’ walk to Lake Ontario.

The history

The exterior is very turn-of-the century, with three storeys of solid red brick. The interior is more modern. Renovations completed in November included the creation of a new, open floor plan on the main level. Although the inside of the house no longer looks its age, it does retain one throwback feature: an unusually generous amount of square footage.

Here’s the foyer:
