15 Draper Street Toronto

House of the week: 15 Draper Street

Blink and you might miss Draper Street, the unassuming strip of Edwardian-style houses near Bathurst and Front Street. Tucked away from the city, this two-bedroom cottage recently went for sale, a rarity on the heritage designated street with only a handful of houses, circa 1880.

Draper has an interesting background story, a street once part of the military reserve and the birthplace of former Lieutenant-Governor Lincoln Alexander (he was born at number 29). The street has its own community parkette and every summer, the tight-knit community throws an annual party and sale.

The listed property is a good mix of nineteenth century character meets renewed space. A historical plaque on the front, an impressive stain glass entrance way, high ceilings, and a refurbished fireplace are just some of the features defining the property. The two-level kitchen is an odd layout with a chef's cooking area on the lower level and more appliances and cupboard space on the main.

So what's the asking price of this historical gem? 15 Draper is on the market for $1,199,000.

GOOD FOR

A tight-knit community. It's one of the only streets in Toronto where everyone knows your name, sort of like the TV show, Cheers, just replace the pub setting with a quiet neighbourly street.

MOVE ON IF

You don't like change. A massive new development is planned for Front and Spadina, with neighbouring streets like Draper affected indirectly by the plans.
