What Do You Do With a 124-Year-Old House? Not Much, According to This Toronto Artist

Toronto has a thing for cannibalizing its history. Throw a stone and you’ll inevitably hit an address where an architectural relic once stood. Such was the fate of the 110-year-old Bank of Montreal building at Yonge and Eglinton, the Stollerys building at Yonge and Bloor, and – most recently – Honest Ed’s, Toronto’s kitschiest landmark, which was bulldozed to make way for high-rises. So it comes as little surprise that artist Anna Church struggled to find a house that hadn’t been totally gutted when she went looking in 2015. Anna and her husband, Nick, wanted a place with character – and, after plenty of searching, that’s exactly what they found. Their Riverside home, built in 1894, has 10-foot-high ceilings, original crown moulding and a wood-burning fireplace. The best part? The floors still creak.
