7 Lumley Avenue Toronto

This multimillion-dollar Toronto house hasn't been on the market since the 70s

The last time 7 Lumley Ave. was on the market, Pierre Trudeau was Prime Minister, and Canada was playing the USSR in hockey. 

Now, the USSR doesn't exist, and Pierre's son is the Prime Minister, but this house looks pretty much the same as it did a half-century earlier.

It's kind of unreal that this house has only ever had two owners, and the second owners have been in the three-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow since 1972.7 Lumley Avenue Toronto

The front entrance. 

That's 52 years of life and memories that have taken place here, and by the looks of it, it's been a good life. You can tell just from the pictures that this home has been very well maintained.

The living room with a fireplace. 

Sure, things are definitely giving retro vibes. For example, the living room has lime green floral wallpaper, and the dining room has pink wall-to-wall carpeting.

Built-in bookcases in the living room. 

But despite some of the interior choices being very much "of its time," the home has tons of potential.

The dining room. 

7 Lumley Ave., located in Bennington Heights close to Moore Park, boasts an incredible 60-foot frontage and a spacious main floor spanning almost 2,000 square feet.7 Lumley Avenue Toronto

The primary bedroom. 

The home is flooded with natural light and the bedrooms are really well sized given the age of the home.

The kitchen. 

According to the listing, the kitchen has been updated, although it could probably use another refresh in the near future.

The basement. 

The basement is fully finished, with a double-wide recreation room and tons of storage areas, one of which is "perfect for an oversized wine cellar."

The elevator. 

But possibly the coolest thing in the basement is the old-timey elevator. According to the listing, it is still operational and connects the two levels of the house.

Another bedroom. 

The house is actually super accessible, if that's a priority. It has an elevator, and the walk-out basement has a ramp.

The backyard. 

As for outdoor space, there's a nice garden and patio.

While the home is definitely fine as-is, we wouldn't be surprised if it underwent a complete transformation.

A third bedroom. 

Given this neighbourhood, where detached homes frequently sell for upwards of $4 million, this bungalow is primed to become a fancy new build that eventually goes for over $5 million.

But right now, 7 Lumley Ave. listed for $2,700,000.
