Listing agent: Lucais Shepherd, Re/Max West Realty Inc.







Agent Lucais Shepherd has sold a couple properties on this popular street running through Little Italy and the Annex, but this semi-detached, 2½-storey residence attracted one of the largest crowds.

The century-old home had a professional makeover with exposed brick walls, timber framing and a floating staircase with wrought iron railings.

"Attention to detail created a truly warm home that people fell in love with," Mr. Shepherd says. "It's hard to come across something of this calibre. It was really fine workmanship throughout."





The fine woodwork stood out, including original plank floors, custom kitchen cabinetry and a unique island topped with a tree trunk segment on the second floor.

"Everyone loved it," the agent says. "It was included in the deal, so many people asked about it."

Including the basement, there is 2,387 square feet of living space divided into three rental units, each with a kitchen, a four-piece bathroom and access to either the private backyard or one of three decks. "That's attractive to a lot of people," Mr. Shepherd adds.

On the main floor, there is a one-bedroom apartment with an open kitchen and living room that features a bay window and a brick wood-burning fireplace, plus a deck off the bedroom.

A two-bedroom unit occupies the upper levels, starting on the second floor where there is a kitchen, a fireside living room and a bedroom with a walkout to a deck. A skylight illuminates the landing to a third-floor bedroom, skylit bathroom and a door to a terrace.

There is a front entrance to the lower-level apartment, which contains one bedroom and a combined living and dining area with kitchen facilities tucked into one corner.

Off the rear lane, there is a garage for parking. But the property's proximity to the subway, shops, restaurants and the University of Toronto proved equally important to buyers. "It's very well located," Mr. Shepherd says.
