House of the week: 7 Parkview Avenue
Thia restored Victorian home in Cabbagetown has hit the market at $2.35 million. The two-and-a-half storey semi-detached home at 7 Parkview Avenue is situated on a dead-end street with the Rosedale Valley as a stunning backdrop and the Parliament retail strip within walking distance.
Gentrification took place here long ago, and the area is now one of the city's most sought after, with unique shops, great cafes and Riverdale Park as central selling points. This is one of the highest concentraions of Victorian houses in North America, and this 4,310 square foot gem is no exception.
The original Victorian features are still intact, with the beautiful stained glass windows in the front of the home and the regal front facade hosting the end of the street. The back end of the home is an addition, with an array of skylights and a large glass conservatory to admire your extra large, green backyard.
A family looking to ditch the car and enjoy nature. With this abode's proximity to transit and ravines and parks, you're getting the best of both worlds: urban accessibility and nature all in one.
MOVE ON IF
You're not keen on cleaning that many rooms. With two-and-a-half storeys plus a finished basement (and three separate patios), there's a lot of floor space to think of - and to clean up after a party.
