Holy f&*@, we did it! I never thought we would get there, but we just bought a house on Queen St. West.
With hipster mainstays such as New Golden City Chinese Restaurant, Steelers Restaurant & Pub, The Elmvale Bakery, and the Springwater Library, we think it’s the best Queen St. West around. It even has a weekly farmer’s market.
For those of you who have been waiting for the gory details, here is the most important stuff from the listing:
- 1900 sq ft
- 3 bedrooms + a finished attic/loft
- 2.5 bathrooms
- Massive yard
- Big, eat-in kitchen
- New roof, furnace and electrical
Here’s the stuff that wasn’t on the listing but should have been:
- Acres of wallpaper
- Windows that don’t open
- Creaky floors
- Exposed pipes in two of the bathrooms
- A leaky basement
- A yard that must recently have served as an angry rhino’s enclosure
Hits and misses aside, we are very excited. A tiny bit terrified, but mostly excited. Let’s say 95% excited. Because at its core, this is a beautiful home that has a good, happy feeling about it. And it’s really nice to know that before us, a family grew up in it.
The closing date is August 16 — four days before my birthday. Thank you, Jean-François, for the best birthday present in the history of the universe.
Niceeeeee!! Congrats! 🙂
Wow – congrats!!
Congratulations!!!! That’s great news! Can’t wait to see it! 🙂
When do we get to see some pictures of the inside?
Inside pictures when we move in! The ones on my phone seem to really emphasize the weird wallpaper.
Squeeee! Mik, it’s gorgeous! LOVE it.
Looks so pretty! BTW, wallpaper is making a come back….
Awesome! I have to visit next time I’m in Ontario!
So, so lovely! We Torontonians shoved in our little shoeboxes are very, very envious.
