Different Tastes

Semi-detached homes of various vintages are common all over Toronto and sometimes one of the halves will undergo big renovations such as we see here. Originally both sides of this pair would have looked like the home on the left but someone with modern taste has rebuilt and changed the right side a lot. I really like it and think that they work well together. Taken when the weather was warmer than now!

Wow, that is a stark difference and like you I like the modern side.

As you know we watch HGTV all the time and have seen so many renovations of these semi-detached homes in Toronto (Love It or List It). Very enjoyable. Many of them, being very old, need substantial work.

This is a lovely structure (the new side - I like it a lot.

I really like the modern side attached to the old. They actually compliment each other. Great shot!

I kind of like it too! I wonder if they consulted their neighbors before they renovated or just surprised them.

Michelle said...

I rather like the contrast.

Randy said...

I do love that modern look sometimes.

I would love to live on the right side. I like the modern touch. But then again the left side is nice too!

Chrissy Brand said...

What a contrast, certainly makes you look twice Pat!
