In 2021, Victorian homes in Toronto come with upper deck hot tubs.

The home at 333 Wellesley St. E. is up for sale for $3,595,000.

That's more than twice its price in 2015 when it was listed pre-renovations.

Dating back to 1878, this three-bedroom in Cabbagetown was first occupied by a woman named Elizabeth Cuthbert who owned a fancy goods store nearby. It was given a heritage designation in 2004.

The property dates back to 1878 and was added to the heritage registry in 2004.

Today, the property has been totally revamped.

Glass fireplaces and a reconstruction of an antique plaster medallion in the living room ceiling won 333 Wellesley a restoration prize from the Cabbagetown Preservation Association.

The house was first occupied by a wealthy shopkeeper named Elizabeth Cuthbert in the late 1800s.

The house now has heated porcelain floors.

On the main floor, a powder room with dark purple walls and gold accents gives the home an old-timey Hollywood feel.

There's a jacuzzi located on a deck on the third floor with skyline views over the city. 

Due to its heritage designation, an initial proposal by owners to add a pool to the rooftop was rejected, so they've opted for a third floor portable jacuzzi instead.
