This $3 million Toronto home seems to take inspiration from the movie Inception.
Though there are several examples across the city of modern buildings taking the historic locations they’re built on and integrating them in clever ways, this Victorian Cabbagetown home at 414 Sumach Street in Toronto is one of the most unique examples out there.
The original home, a two-storey gardener’s cottage, was originally constructed in 1860 and then in 1982, another, more modern home was built around it, creating a house within a house.
According to blogTO, the unique concept comes from Michael Hatch Designs. Adding to the unique look, the front facade of the two-storey gardener’s cottage is now a fascinating architectural feature in the home’s living room.
On the listing, Sotheby’s International Realty writes that 414 Sumach Street “really is hands down the coolest, hippest house I’ve ever seen in Cabbagetown…and maybe all of downtown TO!” While that might be selling the house a little too much, images of the home are undeniably impressive.
The house features several open concept rooms that offer ample natural light, a backyard, a detached double garage with a Tesla charging station and even several skylights throughout the home.
However, as expected, this unique three-bedroom, three-bathroom home is rather expensive, even by Toronto real estate standards, coming in at $3,195,000.
