Sold! Toronto row house sells for $231K over asking

This house is kind of like Doctor Who’s TARDIS, in that it’s bigger on the inside. If you were to just pass by this Beaconsfield home it looks quite tiny and squished between two neighbouring houses. And yet on the inside, it’s super roomy.

While the place was listed back in November 2017 at $1.3 million it was taken down and then re-listed at $999,000 in March this year.

11 brookfield st torontoWhy it sold for what it did?

Back in 2013, this place sold for $770,000 and according to real estate gossip site The Mash, the new owners put a ton of upgrades into this place. This place got new floors, new railings, a whole new kitchen, and a new bathroom vanity.11 brookfield st toronto

Was it worth it?

In the words of the listing: “you just want to hug this house.” So for the location and amount of work that was put into the place, it definitely deserved the price it got.11 brookfield st toronto
