This early 20th-century residence sounds so good on paper – situated on a prime 72- by 195-foot lot in South Rosedale with easy access to downtown – the buyer basically bought it “sight unseen,” says agent Elli Davis.
“The appeal was really the location and lot size,” she says, pointing out that many lots in the area are 50 feet wide. “It’ll be a magnificent home when it’s restored to its original splendour.”
Like many houses on the street, the three-storey home is a designated heritage property with three rental units.
It also has a fourth unit in a separate coach house. “That’s not as common,” says Ms. Davis.
“That was certainly an additional factor that was very nice.”
Two garages flank the coach house, which contains two upper level bedrooms, including one leading out to a terrace, three bathrooms and a living room with vaulted ceilings. The ground floor contains a family room, dining area and kitchen.
In the main house, the first-floor unit has two bedrooms, including one with access to one of two full bathrooms. There also is an eat-in kitchen and dining room, plus a living room and den both with walkouts.
The unit on the second floor offers three bedrooms, a dining room with a wood-burning fireplace, a living room with a balcony, a large kitchen with a breakfast area and two bathrooms.
The second-floor apartment is mainly in its original condition, as is the third floor, which is set up as a three-bedroom suite with one bathroom.
The basement is largely unfinished.
Most rooms feature hardwood floors and ceilings over nine feet high.
