House of the week: 170 Howland Avenue

This fully renovated Victorian has all the classic elements of a historic home, combined with the modern touches that make it beautiful.

The main floor is open concept. Oddly, the kitchen is in the middle rather than at the back, like is common with most Victorians. This is great for being part of all the action even if you’re the one stuck in the kitchen cooking.

Good For

Entertaining. With the kitchen situated in the middle of the house, it’s the perfect spot to play host. Everyone always ends up in the kitchen anyway.170 howland avenue toronto

Move On If

You’re children aren’t the best at sharing bathrooms. With only one bathroom on the second floor, you can guarantee some yelling matches about who gets first dibs.170 howland avenue toronto
