128 Mount Pleasant Road

House of the week: 128 Mount Pleasant Road

This Rosedale house might be the perfect fixer upper project for someone who loves old homes and has tons of money to burn. Right now, it looks like a feral house from the outside, but it's on a sizeable corner lot in a highly desirable location.

It's not as if the house is remotely un-livable right now — it's just not showing its fullest potential. Given the sub $3 million price tag and the prestigious area, prospective buyers will surely be looking at the bones of the house and its property lines more than its present condition.

Anyone who wants a turn-key purchase will want to stay well away from this one.
