The Law(s) of AttractionSend This Listing To A Friend
Don’t just imagine living in a classic Victorian on one of the nicest streets in the Junction, manifest it in this 3-bed, 2-bath renovated semi on a huge 163’ deep lot with parking for two cars. Make life at 80 Laws happen for you (and send your teens to Humberside CI at the same time).
Located between Annette and St. Johns on a beautifully tree-lined street, you’ll find this 2.5-storey Victorian semi. The exterior is everything you’d want in a classic Victorian – red brick, pointed roof, lots of charm — while the interior is everything you would want in a contemporary home. Step through the doors to the open concept main floor with its hardwood floors and 9’8” ceilings. The kitchen is open to the dining/living space and features very large windows that bring in a ton of natural light. There’s plenty of counter space, stainless steel appliances and room to move. The kitchen overlooks the living and dining rooms with expansive windows, a skylight and a gas fireplace to warm the space literally and figuratively. There is also a main floor powder room (the Holy Grail of Toronto real estate).
The second floor features two spacious bedrooms and a very roomy four-piece main bathroom. The primary bedroom is bright with large windows, a walkout to a tiny balcony and a pass-through walk-in closet leading to the main bath. The second bedroom is also spacious with large windows. There’s hardwood flooring throughout this level. Up the stairs you’ll find another large space that could be just about anything — a private primary bedroom retreat, teen bedroom/den/hangout or even a separate family room with a walkout to a deck set amidst the trees (almost like a treehouse).
The backyard is truly exceptional. An expansive deck, accessed from the living room walkout is perfect for summertime meals and gatherings under the canopy of mature trees, and a yard made for the green thumb of the family. It’s fully fenced for privacy and parking for two cars hides just behind the back fence, accessed from the laneway.
The home was completely gutted and renovated before the current sellers purchased the property so all of the mechanicals and wiring are updated, along with the waterline – no scary Victorian nightmares here. Charm and character meets cozy convenience with room for everyone.
And did we mention it’s in a great school district? Annette Street Jr/Sr and Humberside CI make it an even more attractive family option.
Now all you have to do is put it out into the universe. 80 Laws could be your next address.
5 Things We Love
- The light- Large windows and lots of them, plus several skylights, let natural light shine in on all floors in this home.

- The ‘hood- It’s on (arguably) the best street in the Junction – but you can make the argument based on the trees alone.
- The character and charm – This home was built in 1895 it has the classic Victorian character on the outside but none of the scary Victorian problems on the inside. The best of both worlds.
