House of the Week: 1 St. Ives Avenue

This home at 1 St. Ives Ave. in Lawrence Park (At Lawrence Ave. E. and Mt. Pleasant Rd.) is much like your ex: it has lots of crazy personalities all rolled into one big ball of it's-impossible-to-see-what's-going-on, but that's kind of what you like about it. In some moods, like the wine cellar, this house thinks of itself as a modern, wooded Tuscany situation. In others, it's more Victorian-mod, with a touch of the pearl-clutching but relentlessly stylish elderly lady. There's even a touch of the lumberjack in the exposed beams in one of the dining rooms—something for everyone!

GOOD FOR

People with as many personalities as the house, who get bored easily and require room to wander. Winos. Cinephiles.

MOVE ON IF

Redecorating a house this size will give you a headache/anxiety attack. Or if you want a more low-maintenance kind of life.
