213 carlton street torontoWhy it sold for what it did?

It’s a huge old Victorian house in a prime spot in Cabbagetown with so much potential.

213 carlton street torontoWas it worth it?

Depends. If the new owners are going to use this place as an office, hostel or Airbnb I think $2.25 million is pretty cheap. If they plan on turning it into a home, then maybe not. It definitely needs a ton of upgrades and, as it’s an old home, who knows what’s lurking beneath the surface.213 carlton street toronto
