House of the week: 83 Woodlawn Avenue

A restored turn-of-the-century Victorian asks $3,188,000 on a coveted street in the Summerhill neighbourhood. This is a unique property at 83 Woodlawn Avenue, located off the Yonge Street corridor and around the corner from the best liquor store in the city.

The identical property right next door -- a semi detached -- offers a glimpse of the home pre-restoration. The classic red brick was transformed into a painted stucco exterior, and the interior gutted and renovated throughout.

Everything about this three-level house is dramatic. It's hard to miss the elaborate wrought-iron banister along the staircase, and a wealth of french doors, also wrought-iron. The main living space allows for a spacious modern kitchen and smaller rooms for dining. Upstairs, the master features a mirrored ensuite, canopy bed and walkout.

While many streets in the area are narrow and right-of-way, this property still scores pad parking. There's no garage, but plenty of green space in the backyard and the nearby community ravine. There's a balcony on every level and the yard is ultra-private -- you can barely see your neighbours -- thanks to an abundance of hanging green trees.

GOOD FOR

The eclectic buyer. The interior is ideal for someone who wants to feel like royalty. The current design offers a unique flair for anyone bored with modernism and floor-to-ceiling windows. The custom wrought-iron banister and staircase winds its way to the third level, bypassing a Greco Roman-inspired master and dramatic ensuite with mirrored walls and ceilings.

MOVE ON IF

You could use a fourth bedroom or you have a major dislike for wrought-iron. At just 17 feet wide, the narrow dwelling is conducive to only three bedrooms. Might need to fix up that basement if you need additional room.
