That "castle" looks like shit. Sorry.

I love how it looks, and would love to find a place like that to live. All that kitchen really needs is a giant butcher block island and a new refrigerator and you would be set..

Isn't it like the OK Corral out there?

These caverns are beyond awesome. Rather Lovecraftian in fact. The flat area above the trough looks as though it should be an altar for what ever antediluvian rites you might be comppeled to practice.

How cool to have a water supply and cistern in your basement.

Indeed the area does suck a bag of dicks but the powers that be are working as fast as they can to run the poors out and develop it. That site will be cleaned up and I'd imagine the direction is up.
Anyway, who cares about the neighborhood? You're in a castle! If folks get uppity just release the hounds.

So I just saw the castle.  Pretty impressive place.  The underground cisterns are from another world.

 

Sold 10 years ago for over 2.2M and now a potential steal for someone at under 1M.  Needs a ton of work: roof, electric and plumbing systems, and it is a shitty location.

 

Still...

Are you seriously considering making an offer?

It us actually one of the big reasons we did not buy a house in that area for a steal of a price, all other things considered.

Where did you end up settling? I love the area, we're also looking a bit further west and north. House prices in the area have just exploded though so it's hard to find anything reasonably priced.

Late reply, but we settled "north and west" - in the self-named Junction Triangle. We are loving the area - still developing (Bloor and Lansdowne is still pretty sketchy), but a great feel and one of the last affordable neighbourhoods along the Bloor subway line. However, that is changing as the neighbourhood is getting discovered.
