This show stopper, located on Sumach Street in Prime Cabbagetown, holds a special place in my heart. Why? Because it's where I hosted my first public open house some years ago when I began my real estate career. However, it wasn't the heart-grabber it is today. Like many houses in Cabbagetown - renown for being the largest collection of domestic Victorian architecture in North America - it was in original condition and quite worse for wear.
Fortunately, this elegant residence has since gone through a spectacular transformation.
From the curb, this grand semi-detached Victorian retains the magic of its original exterior, but behind its restored facade lays a sophisticated contemporary interior. Boasting four levels of finished space containing almost 2800 square feet, the main level is dedicated to entertaining. With gracious proportions, an intelligent space plan and a custom Valenti Kitchen that connects to a lush professionally landscaped garden, this is pinch me perfect!
The second level provides space for more intimate domesticity. There's a guest suite, a convenient laundry room, and a spacious media room - or third bedroom as required - with a gorgeous bay window perfect for a curl-up couch. The third floor master retreat is a luxurious sanctuary. You'll find bliss in the stunning spa bath, the large walk-in closet, or catching the evening rays on the treetop roof terrace with your favourite glass of Pinot.
Better still, this refuge from the ravages of everyday living is located in Cabbagetown, which is just east of the central downtown core. Here you'll have all the benefits of living in the heart of the city, while enjoying all the charms of a village neighbourhood.
