104 Lowther Avenue

House of the Week: 104 Lowther Avenue

104 Lowther is a Annex Victorian with plenty of character features like inlaid hardwood floors, stained glass windows and original fireplaces.

Like turrets? This house has three, providing more than enough cozy reading nooks for everyone in the family. This is quintessential Toronto architecture on a huge corner lot, located just a short walk from Bloor Street.

The living room, dining room and bedrooms are all large and the master bedroom includes access to a south-facing deck. The kitchen has some new appliances and a mirrored backsplash, but the galley style might make you feel a bit cramped. Although the house itself is quite large, there isn't much of a backyard to speak of: in terms of outdoor space, you'll have to make do with just the sizeable front yard, covered porch and deck off the master. There's potential to convert the basement into a rental apartment, but keep in mind renovation costs.

GOOD FOR

Someone looking for a classic red brick Victorian that hasn't yet been gutted of its charm and character. For this price, you should also really want to live in the Annex - the house is so close to restaurants, shopping, the University of Toronto and transit that it would be a real shame to stay inside.

MOVE ON IF

This house veers traditional rather than modern, so move on if you're not thrilled at the idea of regularly oiling all that wood. Also, it's worth noting that this house is actually semi-detached. The adjoining house is completely separated by a recent sewer linkage, but there are a few walls that will be shared with neighbours. Proceed with caution if you're hunting for privacy.
