All In A Row

This row of houses is found on Belmont St just off Yonge St. Built in the 1890s for labourers these homes now have heritage protection and are snapped up quickly when one comes up for sale. They back onto a park with tennis courts & a hockey rink.

They have a European appeal.

Beautiful - if there are balconies on the other side and if I was rich...

Beautiful houses.

Rather grand dwellings to be built for labourers. I wouldn't mind one myself.

...mighty smart looking.

Worker homes were often built like this so labor had a shorter distance to walk to work. Feet were the major form of transport in the 19th and early 20th Centuries.

I like the look of "row housing".

I don't suppose your average labourer could afford one now.

They are old but built to last.

Amazing to think they were built for labourers and are now much sought after residences, this happens so often. They are so well presented Pat, would love to see inside ✨

Very distinctive! Nice design, and it's good these have a protection too! Save these wonderful beautiful places it's a good thing. Too many things are being plowed down for new to be built.
