165 Davenport Road Toronto

Sold! Architect's dream home goes for $7 million in Toronto

Semi-detached properties in Toronto are rarely characterized as dream homes, but 168 Davenport Rd. is surely an exception.

Listed as the Toronto residence of star architect Dee Dee Taylor Eustace and her firm Taylor Hannah Architect, it looks like it's been transported from Manhattan with its multi-level design and sprawling rooftop terrace.

This is a beautiful space designed by an established architect with plenty of name recognition. The exact location on Davenport might not appeal to everyone, but the person who ultimately did close this deal was surely looking for a unique property.

The house sold for almost $1 million under asking but I wouldn't read a ton into that given the amount we're talking about. The closing price is nothing to scoff at considering that this is a three bedroom semi right on a main street.
