58 Beaty Ave Toronto

This creepy $1 million Toronto house has a bathroom straight out of The Shining

How much of a discount would it take for you to buy a house that reminds you of an iconic horror flick?

58 Beaty Ave TorontoBecause ladies and gentlemen, the size, location and build of this newly-listed home for sale at 58 Beaty Ave. in Toronto makes its asking price — $999,999 — seem like a real steal.

And it'll steal your soul in return, if Stephen King has taught me anything.
