One of less than five houses currently for sale in Cabbagetown, this uniquely historic cottage recently underwent renovations that brought the home’s interior into the 21st Century.
It was built in 1893 as a mill foreman's house, and now it features three surprisingly spacious bedrooms and two baths in a cozy 1,302 square feet.
An open floorplan contains a living room, dining area, and kitchen that appear more spacious than they are thanks to the nine-foot ceilings. Hardwood floors run throughout the home.
The kitchen is a modern mixture of texture and color, from the solid-surface countertops and stainless-steel appliances to the blue and glass cabinetry and tile backsplash.
It’s certainly not the kitchen one would expect in a home from the 1890s.
Both bathrooms are equally contemporary with tiled, glassed-in showers, framed mirrors, and the vessel sink and vanity table in the master bathroom.
In addition to the charming, covered front porch, the house has a low deck behind it in the fenced-in backyard that looks ideal for outdoor entertaining. There’s even a small deck off the master bedroom.
With available inventory at a premium in Cabbagetown, this home might not last long at the $450,000 ask, even if the price/square footage breakdown would make its original late-1800s owners toss in their graves.
