505 Ontario Street Toronto

House of the week: 505 Ontario Street

From the outside, 505 Ontario Street looks like your typical Cabbagetown Victorian with original brick and a well-manicured front lawn. However, step inside and discover a funky two and a half storey home with personality.

Currently listed for $1,299,000, the front hallway greets you with a decorative wall of mirrors, antique double doors and a stain glass window. Head past the living room with its original fireplace and vents, the modern Scandinavian kitchen, and look up at the ceiling once you get to the back sitting area. A large wood inlay covers much of the ceiling in this over 120 year old house. What's the story with that?

Apparently, the wood ceiling is a decorative piece from Indonesia, purchased by a previous owner to give the house some additional flair. Speaking of flair, the master bedroom features its own wild black and white wallpaper and with four bathrooms, there's plenty of house to love. See if you agree. Take a look at the photos.

GOOD FOR

Backyard entertaining. The private yard has been renovated with ample space for barbecuing and two car parking. Having no garage isn't necessarily a bad thing, given Toronto's exploding raccoon population, there's less places for those crafty coons to hide.

MOVE ON IF

You want a deal. The house was listed last fall for less at $1,249,900. It didn't sell and as the real estate market heated up, the owners increased the price about four percent.
