What we like about this unique house:

  • It is a wide house and you can feel the space inside.
  • The dark blue board and batten and red window frames.
  • The basement is high and dry w/walkout
  • The open concept staircase to the basement
  • There is opportunity to add value 
  • Only cosmetic work is needed
  • Really neat kitchen
  • Curb appeal

Final Thoughts:

This is a unique property that has many strong fundamentals: large lot, detached, high basement with walkout, 2 car parking, outdoor space, etc. The neighbourhood isn’t for everybody, but I believe by adding some tasteful upgrades (removing carpet, updating washrooms, possibly kitchen) the house will be a great investment and a large family home.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD –  South Cabbagetown 


“A small town in the heart of a big city”. Funky, artsy, Victorian prim and proper with a dose of real urban grit. You can make your life in Cabbagetown whatever you want it to be. Perfect for a strolling ramble with lots of lingering stops in parks, coffee shops, boutiques and galleries.


Gritty, urban, elegant, hard-scrabble, upscale, sophisticated and working-class. Today’s Cabbagetown is all of that and then some nestled into the heart of downtown Toronto where it is sandwiched between Gerrard St. East and Wellesley to the south/north and Sherbourne/Parliament to the Don Valley Parkway on the east/west.


Cabbagetown is for those who embrace city living and its inherent advantages such as the extraordinary range of cultural and gastronomic opportunities just steps from home. If you want to explore a little beyond Cabbagetown’s own borders, the rest of the downtown core is within easy reach. The Cabbagetown ‘hood celebrates a pocket where culture and the arts live, breathe and literally dance at the renown Toronto Dance Theatre and Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre.
