Breathtaking laneway home in Toronto sells in just 6 days

A unique laneway home tucked away in one of Toronto's only European-style mews just sold for $2.3 million.

This home sold in only six days and it's the third home sold on the laneway in recent years.

Laneway homes have become a new way to increase the city's housing offerings and a great alternative to condo or apartment life. They are often modern with unique designs.

A laneway home that was for sale at 7 Croft Street has enough space for a family and is just steps away from some restaurants and shops in Little Italy, Kensington Market and the Annex. It's also conveniently close to the University of Toronto and the downtown core.
