349 Manning Avenue toronto

The price of this $3.4 million Toronto house has more than doubled in just five years

Toronto is known for its many charming old Victorian homes dating back to the 19th century, but one newly-listed Victorian offers much more modernity and income potential than most of its counterparts. 

The two-storey home at 349 Manning Avenue was constructed in the 1800s and features not one, but two additional revenue streams, which explains the price tag of just over $3.4 million.

349 manning avenueIt's a hefty price when you consider the home was sold for just $1,175,000 back in 2018 and again at $2,225,000 in 2021.

So why the huge increase in price?

The main structure features an entire basement apartment while the backyard boasts a newly-constructed laneway house, meaning somebody could live in the upper levels of the home and rent the basement and laneway home, which is an approximate monthly income of $5,500.

The possibilities are endless. But first, let's look at the homes themselves.

First and foremost, the restored red brick on the exterior of the home is beautifully contrasted against the black trim, doors and roof sidings.

Moving inside, the interior welcomes visitors and prospective homeowners with white oak hardwood flooring and an exposed brick wall surrounding a fireplace.

The open-concept main-floor living space offers some added versatility in that it can be transformed into a formal dining room or even an office.
