House of the Week: 266 Brunswick Avenue

Who knew a row house could be worth $1.5 million? Or rather, who knew a row house could be listed at $1.5 million? This 1886 Victorian row has been updated top-to-bottom with plenty of post-Victorian interior renovations, including an integrated kitchen wine bar, floating staircases, and heated bathroom and basement floors. Just don't mind the whole 16-foot-wide thing.

GOOD FOR:

University of Toronto deans or wealthy student trust-fund babies. Good for wood-lovers, wine-lovers, and those who can function in narrow spaces. Good, also, for those with an appreciation for history (but who still need a modern six-burner gas range).

MOVE ON IF:

You have wide furniture, arthritis in your knees, or multiple vehicles. Move on if you want four walls of windows for your $1.5 million, or, at the very least, some distance from your neighbours.
