Love That Balcony!

I found this large home in the Little Italy neighbourhood and love that 2nd floor balcony. These large homes in this area were built as single family dwellings but many have been divided into flats and this one has a couple of units and also you can see down the driveway that there is a coach house out back. There is a trend now to turn them back into very large family homes so as a result rental units disappear - a major problem in the city.

I like it too, and what a view it must have!

Porches can be a bit tricky. The first floor porch would tend to darken the interior yet keeping the rooms cool. I much prefer the open, sunny second floor porch. Enjoying the sun would be a pleasure up there.

The style of this house is very interesting. There is such a difference between the two upstairs windows. I like that one with the elaborate arch over it.

That's my kind of place and in the summer I'd probably spend a lot of time out on that balcony! What a grand house!

Such an overload of embellishments! (To my eye at least.)

I love this house. I do like the two window room on top. I wonder what the view would be like.
