If you, like me, have ever wandered by Trinity Bellwoods Park and wondered why those stone entry columns at Queen and Strachan are there – well wonder no more! I have solved this (non) mystery for you!  You’re welcome.

The land used to belong to Captain Samuel Smith who named it Gore Park – after Lieutenant-Governor Gore, with Vale coming from the ravine that is now the park that we love.

Here is what it used to look like in 1800’s when Trinity College was there. Wasn’t it gorgeous? (Thank you for coming to my Sunday Toronto real estate TED talk.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

But let’s talk more about this amazing house that sits there now:

  • it has 5 beds, 5 baths over 2.5 storeys
  • outdoor walk-outs on every floor
  • exposed brick walls EVERYWHERE – all professionally restored
  • the master suite and en-suite have GOLD fixtures – plus a steam sauna in that killer shower
  • the fireplace is draped in Italian stone
  • chandeliers for everyone
  • the slate roof has a 100 year warranty for those of you that would be pleased by this
  • all of the unsexy things have been done; sump pumps, weeping tile systems, emergency drains, new electrical, new plumbing, fire ratings – basically all of the things
  • 3 Nest systems
  • the basement apartment is legal
  • parking for 2 cars
