House of the week: 125 Bedford Road

There's a host of surprises behind the elegant red brick exterior of 125 Bedford Rd., which recently hit the market at just shy of $6 million. It's one of those renovated Victorians with plenty of character but also modern appeal. 

125 Bedford Road TorontoThe interior design isn't without a few quirks, though. Perhaps the most obvious is the supporting beam that divides the living an dining rooms. Presumably at one point these were separated by a full wall, but when the space was opened up, something was needed for structural support.

125 Bedford Road TorontoI also find the wedge-shaped double fireplace a bit curious, though I'll admit that it actually works quite well in distinguishing the rooms and has plenty of potential to warm both spaces up — both literally and in terms of ambience.

You can imagine the centre area filled with produce in preparation of a large feast.

125 Bedford Road TorontoUpstairs, the historical character of the home shines through on the stairway and in the upper bedrooms. I quite like all the stained glass and the sloped ceilings, but even in the updated master bedroom, the large windows and fireplace are a dramatic reminder of the home's age.
