An Old Beauty

This old house on Spadina Ave is being given a fresh up which will hopefully restore all of the wonderful details it has. I love how those round windows are made to look like they are hanging from above. It was built in 1909 and has heritage protection so things have to remain as they are after the renewal.

It always makes me so happy when I hear those words 'heritage Listed'. This one is going to be gorgeous again when finished ✨

Wonderful old building. Its front almost looks like a face. Good thing it is being restored.

The details of this place are wonderful. It should look bright and fresh when it's done.

I don't think many modern builders could build you a house like that. Great that it's being so well looked after.
