This $2.25 million Toronto house is the stuff of nightmares
If you've ever wanted to live in a haunted house, and have $2,250,000 to spare, look no further than this recently-listed Toronto house.
From the outside, 134 Upper Canada Drive looks unassuming; the lawn is cut, the leaves raked. There are no signs of disrepair.
Situated near Yonge Street and Highway 401 in North York, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow is "close to everything," including (maybe) the gates of hell.
At best, the front hall is dated - the listing does note that the interior is "vintage." At worst, it's the last step before a wall-to-wall carpeted nightmare.
Despite a sole pair of rubber gloves in the sink, the kitchen counters are visibly filthy and worn down in some places. The lace curtains and vintage radiators add to the ghostly aura.
As do the chandeliers.
What appears to be a piano and a pair of boxes are all that remain in the living room.
The dingey carpets, dirty walls, and broken blinds found in the very lived-in bedrooms do not seem conducive to a good night's sleep.
Things get even creepier in the basement.
The main room has blood-red floors and peeling, wood-panelled walls. They're plastered with degrees, photos, and clippings, as well as a strange orb of green light that the listing makes no effort to hide.
A sole shadeless lamp sits in one corner.
The bathroom is, unsurprisingly, grungy. The toilet seat is, surprisingly, fuzzy.
Arguably the most unsettling part of the house, though, is the furnace room.
Phantom pipes and single-hanging lightbulbs abound.
The backyard is vast — large enough for a pool, the listing says. And there are no rear neighbours, so no one can hear you scream.
