LISTING AGENT Lucais Shepherd, Right at Home Realty Inc.

The Action: This century-old Victorian was priced just over $1-million to undercut other pricier Annex properties listed at the same time. By the time the presentation date arrived, there was an offer with a $55,000 premium.

What They Got: This 2 1/2-storey structure shelters classic and unconventional details, from its original banister, stained glass and bay windows in areas such as the dining room to a fireside family room with 12-foot ceilings, patio access, brick walls, and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace and oven when it served as the Bathurst Bakery in 1888.

Updates include new black iron fencing at the front of the 20-by-125-foot lot, a second bathroom installed in the basement and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, which also has an exit to a deck, koi pond, fountain, shed and laneway exiting to Loretto Lane.

The second floor is laid out with one of two bathrooms and three bedrooms, including one with a sky-lit cathedral ceiling, and another with stairs to a loft.

The Agent's Take: "What's great about that area is that it's literally steps to the Bloor and Bathurst subway stop … and it's a historic intersection in Mirvish Village," says agent Lucais Shepherd. "[This house] also has frontage on two streets, which is kind of handy."

Inside are more marvels, from four bay windows to a red ceramic-tiled bathroom with skylights and a clawfoot tub.

"This house was a Victorian and … the bakery built off the back of the house became a huge family room. It's roughly over 21-feet [wide] – and there are some lots in Toronto that are not much bigger than that – so that was a room that was a real surprise," Mr. Shepherd notes.

"[Plus] the library had a small hidden wet bar where the owner kept his Irish whiskey. It was a neat room."
