90 markham street torontoWhy it sold for what it did?

When your home is featured in the Globe and Mail and House & Home Magazine, it’s obviously going to fetch a pretty penny.

90 markham street torontoWas it worth it?

Absolutely. Not only is this a gorgeous Victorian house in one of Toronto’s most coveted neighbourhoods but El-Abdallah’s renovation also brings this home up to another level. If the new owners fix up the rental unit this place could easily sell for twice as much in the future.90 markham street toronto
