House of the Week: 125 Rosemount Avenue
If you're looking for a Victorian house on a large lot, head up to Weston to this stately home at 125 Rosemount Avenue. The curb appeal of this house is unbeatable. And it has a lot of classic features too like a beautiful front porch, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and dormer windows. This house has good bones to go along with and even better historic charm.
The catch to the intact features, though, may be the loud interior design. The pink walls and loud wallpaper is more 1914 than 2014, so you might want to do an upgrade. Nothing a fresh coat of paint won't fix, though. The kitchens and bathrooms may need an update too. But even that isn't all bad. There's space to shape these rooms into the style of your dreams.
Worried about the location? Don't be. There is plenty to do around these parts.
They say it's the inside that counts. But if the outside counts just as much to you, this might be the spot for you. The cream brick, mansard roof, and front porches make for top notch curb appeal. Not only that, but the expansive yard leaves plenty of room for gardening or a play space for kids. You can have it all still within the city limits.
MOVE ON IF
You're looking for a central location. This neighbourhood is actually quite walkable - it clocks in with a Walk Score of 91. But transit? You're not so lucky. Weston is distant from any subway or streetcar lines. Be prepared to get used to bus routes or make use of the attached garage if you purchase this home.
