If you're a buyer who loves the patina of a classic Victorian but doesn't want the madness - and expense - of a renovation, you know how difficult it is to find a property that doesn't require a head-to-toe 'gut job' where it takes months before you can unpack your belongings. Fortunately there's a solution, in this elegant Cabbagetown residence.
Located in Prime Cabbagetown - which features North America's largest collection of preserved Victorian residences - this character two-and-a-half storey semi-detached house is located on Sackville Street, which has long been coveted as one of the premier streets in this neighbourhood. Situated just north of Carlton Street one block east of Parliament - in the very heart of this heart-grabbing neighbourhood - this dwelling is just a short stroll to the Riverdale Farm, where neighbourhood families visit the animals or view outdoor movies in the park during the summer months. Allan Gardens at Gerrard and Sherbourne, one of the oldest parks in the city with its magical conservatory, a playground and two fenced off-leash areas for dogs. And for city commuters, it's steps to the Carlton Streetcar or a 20 minute walk to the Financial District!
Yes, this stellar location is exactly where you want to be; just steps from Cabbagetown’s village shoppes on Parliament with its dynamic collection of retail, grocers, cafes, an LCBO and a Starbucks to boot! Some of my favourite haunts include Jet Fuel, The House on Parliament, St. Jamestown Steak and Chops, and Spruce for designer home furnishings.
