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.

^^ No.  It's being sold by a receiver as it is part of a lawsuit right  now.  Once a price is accepted they will then allow for overbids by approved buyers.  It could turn into a mess.

 

I think it would make a great office.  Also potential to turn the water into something.  10K gallons per day bubble up through the cisterns.

The onions really pull it all together.

I think we need to buy it for the SF clubhouse.

This is the home I grew up in. It was up for sale recently so my mom sent a pic from the listing agency. It had much nicer landscaping once upon a time when my Mom took care of it, but it's still quaint.

Can you imagine a house of that size being placed on a lot that large these days? There'd be three garage bays and at least twice the square footage.

They could build a 15 floor apartment block on a plot that size, have probably 500 people living there.

Love that house...

Quaint. Not sure how I feel about the tiny windows though

Moved out of the house and into a rental with a roommate... Place is full of cheap mass-produced flat-pack furnitures:

Damn man...I'd switch to all ikea furniture if it meant I could live there (as long as I could still afford a gallon of white paint).

Thanks guys, wasn't sure if I'd catch flack here for having so much Ikea, which is pretty much everything except the TV stand which I made myself and main couch. But with spacing and layout it turned out perfectly the way I envisioned when I first saw the place unfurnished.

Haha as for the white paint, the opposing wall is beige, so the darkness is actually not that overwhelming. It was originally that dark brown and was planning on going entirely beige since I had to re-paint anyways to patch some holes left over by shelves. I was convinced to keep it dark by a few women at work saying how much sexier it is with colour, so decided to keep it. I am very glad we kept it dark.
