Ripe For Conversion


One more shot from the same laneway/alley to show you. This one has so much character that I am sure it will be wonderful when it is converted. These laneway buildings are basically in the backyards of some of the homes on the neighbouring streets, adjacent to the garages and parking spaces of the other houses as you can see in the pic. Although the lanes themselves appear a bit rough, the homes in this area sell for over $2 million so I don't think this building will stay empty for long. The church steeple that is just visible towards the right will be in my post for tomorrow. Stay tuned!

It sure is amazing that this structure borders on a $2 million-dollar property!

Two million dollars? As in money? Loot? Moolah?

Holy cow! So what would this laneway building going to sell for?

Yikes! Wouldn't you like to have bought some of those properties years ago?

Laneway housing is neat! I've always thought laneways were a great idea, though with property values the way they are, just not affordable anymore. Progress.

This sure does not look like an outbuilding on a posh property.

Last night I saw a TV show about people looking for homes in Toronto. I was amazed how many new towers have been built in Toronto. It looks very prosperous.

Love the faux mansard roof on this - gives it sooo much potential

That really would look great fixed up.

Wouldn't it be fun to design a conversion for a great-looking backyard building like that?
You find the most interesting places.

Interesting post.

Birdman said...

Things are not always as they seem. And that's mostly a good thing.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Yup, as Birdman says, you can't judge a book by it's cover. People love something a little different these days and they're willing to pay for it! Great series Red.

$2million, wowzers. Nice composition though.

Looks like an area that is becoming very rapidly gentrified and up-market, Pat.
