94 Amelia Street Toronto

House of the week: 94 Amelia Street

It doesn't get much more adorable than 94 Amelia Street. Located on a quiet stretch of Cabbagetown, this Victorian cottage is cute as a button. Don't let the quaint outside deceive you, however. The interior has been extravagantly renovated. It's a tale of two houses with a modern kitchen and bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a vaulted ceiling on the second floor. It's a modern house inside a Brothers Grimm fairytale cottage. You might not want to replicate the pseudo-Versailles look in the living room, but that's just other people's junk anyway.

This house makes full use of the outdoor space in this leafy neighbourhood. French doors open onto the backyard, and the bedrooms on the second and third floor both open onto balconies. A dipping pool in the backyard may not be at the top of your "must haves" list, but it sure won't hurt when the humidity of July and August set in. And if you're longing for more greenery, it's only a short walk to Riverdale Park -- perfect for families with kids, or dogs, or, frankly, just people.

GOOD FOR

Cabbagetown lovers. A house couldn't be much more reflective of the Cabbagetown vibe than this one. And only a short walk from both Riverdale Farm and Parliament Street, this house is smack dab in the middle of the neighbourhood. Stop for a coffee at Jet Fuel after a bike ride, or take the dog to the weekly farmers market in Riverdale Park, and you can embrace this community within the city.

MOVE ON IF

Alhough the house could be toned down with different furniture and decorations (maybe leopard print carpet isn't your thing, for example), it's never going to have a rustic cottagey feel. Oh, and the feigned elegance of the decor is reflected in the price tag. Even for the coveted Cabbagetown, a near $2 Million dollar price tag is pretty steep. Start counting your pennies!
