191 Carlton Street

House of the week: 191 Carlton Street

191 Carlton Street is the chic Georgian-style abode in the city's Jet Fueled Cabbagetown neighbourhood. The downtown housing market is so hot right now that even $1.8M only buys a two bedroom on a major street.

Built in 1894, the heritage-designated home has good bones. The two-and-a-half storey structure was gutted about nine years ago, transforming the space using a juxtaposition of different materials like wood framing and a custom glass staircase.

The floor plan isn't typical but remains functional. The main level features a living space while the renovated kitchen is located on the second floor. The upper level houses the master bedroom, outfitted with a cozy fireplace and a fully exposed ensuite shower. For a nighttime rendezvous, the backyard deck has a private hot tub.

GOOD FOR

A live/work space. The property, zoned for both commercial and duplex status, also features a separate entrance for a basement apartment. The extra rental income might come in handy paying off the mortgage.

MOVE ON IF

You don't want to live on a main street or next to a restaurant. This section of Carlton is more commercial than residential, and while it's convenient for grabbing some takeout, you don't want rodents as your house guest.
