Tragically Hip Gord Downie's former home in Toronto on sale for $6 million
Now that MTV Cribs is back we can all experience the joy of seeing inside celebrity homes again. Usually the homes are outrageous and over-the-top but perhaps that's just the American way.
This four-bedroom, seven-bathroom home at 12 McKenzie Avenue is pretty typical for a South Rosedale home.
So I was surprised to learn Tragically Hip's Gord Downie owned it back in the early 2000's.
For a rock legend I didn't really expect such a normal house...
Don't get me wrong it's a gorgeous house, and it's been nearly 20 years since he lived there but I kind of assumed there would be a recording studio or something in the house.
Not to worry, the house makes up for the lack of rock and roll in other ways.
The home has more than 6,000-square-feet of living space.
The principal rooms are bright and airy with huge windows and high ceilings everywhere.
There's also plenty of character and architectural details throughout such as the arched entranceways and wainscotting.
The bedrooms are spacious.
The basement has an infrared sauna and heated floors.
The only let down of this house is the backyard, which is kinda meh.
And if you wanted to live where the Canadian rock icon himself lived it will cost you $5,988,000.
Which seems pretty reasonable considering some celebrity homes can be worth more than $100 million.
