House of the Week: 6 Littlehayes Lane
This property in the heart of Kensington Market is as unique as the community. The antithesis of the current condo market, the wood accents here might be overbearing for some, but it gives the space this kind of retro feel with a ton of warmth.
It's currently sectioned off into three units, but could easily be transformed to a single family home or one that could accommodate an extended family. This place also has some pretty cool features like the indoor skylight adding to the openness of the basement kitchen or the rooftop terrace with some serious panoramic views of the city. My only question is where the handrails are on some of those staircases.
This is another property zoned for both commercial and residential use which could be great for a small business or investor. It's hard to say how Kensington Market will evolve over the next few years, but this could be an opportunity to invest before gentrification takes over and prices climb.
MOVE ON IF:
You hate wood and you're not looking to invest time and money to renovate. With a little bit of work this place could be transformed into a palace of awesome.
