208 Galley Avenue - Listed at $899,999

Is that Wedgwood, or are you just happy to see me? Take in this charming, 2 storey, semi-detached Victorian house in the heart of Roncesvalles Village. Renovated throughout, it has 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms, and a generous square footage in which to build your nest. It has hardwood floors throughout, pot lights for days, which make the ceilings seem extra high, and has a notable amount of original character still intact. So bright and shiny, like an antique penny that’s just been cleaned! The formal living room sports a good ol’ fashioned fireplace, while the spacious modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and Caesarstone counter tops. I’m down with the old, and I’m into the new! Each spacious bedrooms boasts a closet, which is kind of a big deal because, fun fact, in Victorian days, houses in Toronto were taxed by the number of rooms they contained, and closets counted as rooms. Consequently, to trip up the tax man, many Torontonians of the day elected not to have closets built into their homes. Rest assured, at 208 Galley there are closets for all. It has updated bathrooms (hooray!), central air conditioning (because in this heat, I know you’re wondering), and the most adorable of urban yards. What are you going to do back there? I don’t know, but it’s entirely up to you. The unfinished basement is just loaded with potential, so bring your dreams along with you. This house may be old, but it has some new tricks up its sleeve. And so much life left to live!  Offers August 15th at 7pm. Contact me today for a showing. xo
