576 Manning Ave. Toronto

This $1.7 million Toronto home looks like it was split in half

"Bigger than it seems!" yells the listing for 576 Manning Ave., which, if we're honest, is a weird thing to say, no matter what you're talking about. 

But it's not really what you expect to hear when talking about a detached house. 

However, the listing has a point – this Victorian house looks like it's only half a house, cut down the middle.

The living room in the second-floor unit. 

It's like it used to be a semi-detached house and the other half of the house just kinda disappeared at some point.

But despite its missing left-twin, this home is actually a good-looking duplex with two units.

"[It's the] perfect option for live-rent, rent-rent (investment) or inter-family set-up," notes realtor Simon Wright in the listing.

The backyard. 

As for outdoor space, there's a small backyard and it has laneway access, which in Toronto is a big selling point.
