430 Sackville Street Toronto

House of the Week: 430 Sackville Street

If you've nursed dreams of living in Cabbagetown and have a real estate budget of at least $1.4 million, this restored Victorian on Sackville Street could fit the bill. The red brick exterior fits in with the neighbouring Victorian properties, but projects a little extra curb appeal thanks to a restored railing and standout door. Around back you'll find a modern two-tiered deck and parking space for two cars through an electric gate.

The house has been renovated and restored from floor to (high) ceiling. There's virtually no work to be done, unless you think the wrought iron stair railing feels a bit out of place. The white and grey kitchen doesn't have enough space for a full table, just a space-hogging marble breakfast bar, but whose feet can argue with heated floors?

If you're weak to Cabbagetown's charms, the location really can't be beat. This stretch of Sackville, from Carlton north to St. James Cemetery, is arguably the nicest block in the whole neighbourhood. It's just a short walk to the area's best amenities, from ghosts (Necropolis) to goats (Riverdale Farm) to good fresh food (Riverdale Farmer's Market). And don't worry about the ghosts--they're gentrified, too.

GOOD FOR

Cabbagetown enthusiasts itching to get into this high-demand neighbourhood. Three bedrooms won't fit a large family, but the house is more than roomy enough for two adults, a few kids and a revolving door of guests. The open concept main floor (living room, dining room, kitchen, back deck and all) is well suited for entertaining.

MOVE ON IF

You'd prefer a grassy backyard to a private parking pad. You think a house listed for this price should boast more square feet, or at least more bedrooms. You get the creeps being that close to all those graves.
