Superb Balcony


Just a block over from yesterday's Annex house is this beautifully restored Victorian with probably the best balcony in the neighbourhood. Built in 1899 this house was up for sale this year at $2.5 million and at the time had interior pics posted on-line - just as gorgeous as you would expect. A wonderful den/library opens out onto that balcony - I'd love to sit up there with a book and a big pot of tea! I have no idea what 'Us Thus' refers to.

That is a wonderful balcony. I could handle sitting there drinking coffee in the morning.

Nice find, chandelier and all!

I would never imagine it is a residential house, it's so well preserved!
There are so many details in this house, this place is full of history. :)

I will take the evening pass on the balcony with a glass of wine.

Yes, I think it looks like one I could easily live there. I like the mystery of the sign, too.

I'd like to have the $2.5 million!

You find some of the neatest places in Toronto, that's for sure.

What a beautiful place. I'm with Steffe, glass of wine and evening light.

That is quite a place. The roof even suggests an Asian influence.

Pat said...

I, too, could imagine sitting out there with a good book!

Wonder if 'Us Thus' just means 'Us Like This' or you know 'Us Here', sort of thing!!! It's a beautiful house whatever, well spotted Red..

I'd love to be drinking a martini up there tonight.
