249 Major Street Toronto

This $1.5 million Toronto home hasn't been for sale in nearly 50 years

In 1976, the CN Tower opened to the public, the Timbit was introduced to the world, and Canada hosted its first Olympics.

The notable year also marks the last time that 249 Major Street was up for sale. Now, for the first time in 46 years, the three-storey semi is back on the market, and it could be yours.

Situated in the heart of The Annex, the property is billed as a "true family home" with over 2,500 square feet of living space across its four levels.

"[There is] so much potential to renovate and create a spectacular customized property," the listing reads.
