Sold! Cute Toronto row house goes for $200K over asking

Sometimes you can tell just from the outside that a place is going to be stunning. This Victorian Cabbagetown home was fully renovated and they did a bang-up job of it.

Inside it’s all modern contemporary open concept living. The 10-foot ceilings on the main level, plus the big bay window and sleek design elements evoke loft-like living, wrapped in vintage Victorian charm.
