  • absolutely gorgeous. Love the woodwork. Probably worth that much given the sqft and number of bedrooms.

    Though… is that an electric stove?

  • mmm. $2+m for stucco exterior and formica countertops. #loveit #1980

  • Beautiful. I, too, love all the woodwork. It adds a great element without being overpowering and dark. Also love the skylights in that one bedroom. What’s with all the white on white on white on white kitchens lately though?

  • I suppose if I had $2.25m to buy this house, I’d also have the tens of thousands of dollars I’d need to spend on curtains throughout. I couldn’t live there otherwise.

  • I think you’re spending the 2mil+ on the location and gutting those terrible portions of the house. A few blocks from the CP metro (and 5000 sq ft to boot)? Seems like a good deal to me.

  • Holy cow, this is incredible. Love the interiors and everything that’s not to my aesthetic taste is very serviceable and appears well maintained. Personally I can’t afford a $2.25M home and have no need for 7BR, but for whoever does this is a great deal. I’d want to install more-era-appropriate baths and kitchen, and perhaps would try to negotiate a $75K price reduction for half of that.

    I hate it when someone’s basement looks bigger and nicer than my apartment!

  • christ, i wish i was wealthy.

  • Just curious what folks think of having stained wood in one room next to a room where it is painted. I’m having this dilemma. Decorator types have told me the wood should either be all painted or all stained to maintain a visual flow in the house. However, I kinda like mixing it up a bit. I want to paint the wooden coffers in the dining room, but leave the wood natural in the living room and foyer.

  • OMG WANT. Great location, too. Drool.
