The history

The owners of this house are Sarah and Greg Thomson. Greg is the director of research at Charity Intelligence Canada, and Sarah is familiar to anyone who follows Toronto politics: she’s a perennial political candidate with two mayoral bids behind her. (Even if you don’t remember her candidacy, you might remember her hair.) When the Thomsons purchased the home in 2004, it was a triplex, but they converted it back into a single family dwelling.

Big selling point

The third-floor master suite, with its large bay window, wide-plank hardwood floors, walk-in closet and oversized bathroom is a luxurious space for after-work relaxation. Here’s the bedroom:

Possible deal breaker

That large window in front of the third floor guest toilet could make some feel bladder shy. Curtains might be a wise investment:
