Former 1950s triplex transformed into expansive $3 million Toronto home
Believe it or not, this home was built as a triplex in 1956.
But at some point, a family turned this into a single-family home, which in this current market is a bit of a tragedy.
All that is to say, we could use more multi-residential homes in the GTA.
But single-family home or triplex, this home has a lot to offer for its $2,999,000 listing price.
The custom-built home has over 4,000 square feet of living space and offers six bedrooms and four bathrooms.
It's also sun-filled and has plenty of charming retro details that add character to the home.
You'll notice wainscotting, arched entryways, intricate medallions, original fireplaces, parquet wood flooring and mid-century details like the stair banisters.
The main floor is open concept with combined living and family rooms.
The dining room has French doors.
However, the home is being sold in an "as is" condition.
So while some elements are charming, others are very dated and in immediate need of replacement.
For example, the kitchen is right out of the 50s with the dark wood cabinets and red melamine counters.
The appliances likely haven't been updated since the 80s or 90s just by looking at them.
Upstairs you'll find the bedrooms.
The primary bedroom was probably once a living room as it's massive.
It also has an office, a six-piece ensuite and a walk-out to the balcony.
The other bedrooms on the upper floor aren't as large but they're decent.
Finally, since this house was a triplex, it has a one-bedroom basement apartment with large windows and two walk-outs.
There's also a decently-sized backyard and enough parking for seven cars.
If this was turned back into a triplex, it could be a solid income property – especially considering the average rent for just a one-bedroom apartment is over $2,300 a month.
