September 2011 Home Of The Month - South Cabbagetown

September 30th, 2011 | Buy Of The MonthReal EstateCabbagetown / Corktown

For years South Cabbagetown has suffered a bad reputation. Located east of Sherbourne and south Of Gerrard all the way down to the other revitalizing neighbourhood called 'Corktown', this pocket of Victorian and infill housing have long been wrapped by the social housing 'projects' of Moss Park and Regent Park to the east, and… Read Full Entry

Hello, My Name Is Autumn

September 29th, 2011 | Lifestyle

The Penthouse Edition

September 23rd, 2011 | Word On The Street

September 15th, 2011 | House And HomeReal Estate

In the past I've railed on about my disdain for House Flippers who renovate properties for profit without committing to quality (or style!) during the process.

When I embarked on the renovation journey of my Movie House loft I, well, reached for the stars. This place is my version of a bespoke hotel residential suite. Executing a deluxe reno to the highest calibre and standards is not easy. Perfection is in the details. And given there are still a few more… Read Full Entry
