House of the week: 8 Dale Avenue

I knew houses in Rosedale were nice, but not this nice! This century-old home is stunning. It’s like they’ve restored it to its former glory. The interior is classic and elegant, yet dramatic with a hint of regal.8 dale avenue torontoThe main floor has the large principal rooms, including living, dining room, family room and kitchen.

Good For

Summer BBQ parties. The backyard is surprisingly large for being so central. Plus, a saltwater pool means your house is almost guaranteed to be the go-to hang out spot when the weather is hot.8 dale avenue toronto

Move On If

You can’t afford that Rosedale lifestyle. While it’s not Bridle Path-expensive, at over $5 million this place is certainly isn’t cheap.8 dale avenue toronto
