House of the week: 24 Church Street
24 Church Street is debatably one of the coolest and most unusual properties to hit the market. Asking $799,900, the Georgian-style house located near the Humber River is basically made out of wood. From the inside, it looks more like a contemporary farmhouse than an urban Toronto dwelling.
Hardwood flooring, polished ceilings, a sweeping curved staircase, and matching furniture and decor. Huff and puff all you dare--this home, circa 1853, is not going to be knocked down anytime soon, one can hope.
The interior is surprisingly large with only two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a small kitchen. The wood staircase leads to a loft-style second floor with an open layout, a bathroom with a discreet washer and dryer and a shower sans curtain. It feels almost like a chic camping experience in the city's west end. Grab a s'more and take a closer peek.
Those longing for cottage country. Here ya go. A dream house under $1 million for pine-lovers alike and anyone thirsting for a northern experience near downtown Toronto.
MOVE ON IF
There's no basement. A rarity in the city as every house in T.O. is built with a basement or at least a crawl space. The property used to be a church but remains structurally sound, given its been standing tall for well over 100 years. Be weary during the winter months--it might get a little chilly, even with the heated floors and multiple fireplaces.
