A 2,000-square-foot laneway home in Little Portugal.
The sellers, developer Mark McGroarty and Caricari Lee Architects, bought this rare T-shaped lot in 2007. There was an existing home at the front of the lot, so they renovated that. Then they built three completely new homes in the backyard, including this detached laneway house. The three backyard homes share a walkway from Dovercourt Road. Each has its own laneway entrance and a separate garage.
Here’s the living room and entry:
The kitchen has quartz countertops:
There are three bedrooms on the second floor. Here’s one of them:

The buyers are upsizing from a condo. They liked the home’s unusual laneway location.
