This small, worn-out bungalow right near Christie Pits just sold for almost exactly double the asking price. Listed on the market at $499,000, it was snatched up for $988,018 just six days later.

69 Muriel – Toronto  Greektown

Ask $679,900.00

Sell: $1,050,000.

Lot   20 x 78 ft

It’s a sign of what little $1-million now buys in Toronto’s soaring housing market – a tear-down home on a skinny lot fetching a premium price in a neighbourhood known for its blue-collar roots.

Last week, the detached bungalow with an asking price of $679,900 in the Greektown neighbourhood on Toronto’s east side attracted a bidding war.

This tiny Toronto house sold for $370,000 over asking (The Globe and Mail)

The front yards in the area, near the major intersection of Danforth Avenue and Pape Avenue, are often taken up by parking pads barely large enough to hold a car. Some properties have a small patch of grass that residents on the Prairies would scoff at for being a poor excuse for a lawn.

A million-dollar property is far from luxury in Toronto.

The sellers of 69 Muriel Ave. have owned their home for a half-century. They listed their property on Jan. 23, and began accepting offers on Feb. 1. “Attention builders, contractors, renovators and envisioners,” the listing blared. “Don’t miss out on this chance to build a fabulous new home.” For good measure, the feature sheet added: “With front pad parking!”

On Feb. 2, after only 10 days on the market, the bungalow built in 1912 sold for an astonishing $1,050,000.

In 1966, the owners paid $10,000 for their modest abode. Adjusted for inflation, it works out to roughly $73,000 today.

The residence had an assessed value of $443,000 on Jan. 1, 2012, and $645,000 on Jan. 1, 2016, according to Municipal Property Assessment Corp.

Multiple bidders competed for the tear-down on a tiny lot measuring 20 feet wide by 78 feet deep. The winning bid emerged 54 per cent above the list price and caught industry observers by surprise – $370,100 higher than the asking price.

COMING SOON – GLEBE MODERNISM BLENDED WITH SUPERB LOCATION

NOW SOLD

FREEN RESIDENCE

ARCHITECT JOHN DONKIN

A home that makes you stop and look. With its easy lines and understated modern design is an alluring home. Architect John Donkin  worked his magic along with the owners to redo a 1950s home. Turning the house into a statement of simplicity overlooking the water of Patterson Creek in the Glebe. The homes is beautifully simple in design, capturing the light and vistas from most rooms of the home yet providing privacy for the owners.

A zen like rear garden, beautifully landscaped front grounds  and a huge terrace off the second floor overlooking the Inlet provides summer havens. The home is full of unique features and design choices that make the house one of a kind.

 Part of ab article from The National Review of Design and Practice written about 5 Clemow known as the Freen House 

ARCHITECT JOHN DONKIN   TEXT JANINE DEBANN

Donkin began by gutting the interior to the framing and stripping the exterior down to the sheathing. He recomposed the south faCade asymmetrically and used floor-to-ceiling glass instead of punched windows. This created a more dramatic diagonal visual path from the living room across the site. Inside, these new openings organize the living room and a conservatory-like sitting space in the southwest corner. The view now terminates at an elegant row of houses some 200 feet away. In addition, Donkin clarified circulation by boldly relocating the staircase from its position in the southwest corner of the house.

The new open-riser steel stair, pulled inward in plan, now leads to a central point in the upper floor, leaving room for both an office and a master bedroom along the south side. The ground floor still consists of the same living spaces as before, but is now reconfigured as visually interconnected zones linking the street to the rear yard. Donkin’s fascination with continuous spaces is evident in every corner of the house. Rooms do not contain, but rather terminate at distant points, giving the house a scale far greater in perception than in measured reality
