This Sunny Toronto Home is the Definition of Cozy Chic

Sometimes, buying a house in Toronto can be straight-up weird. The homeowner, a civil litigation lawyer, learned this when she and her husband, a consultant, started looking for a home in Wychwood in 2017. They’d been searching for months when they spotted a rickety For Sale sign. Strangely, the house wasn’t listed online. When they reached out, they learned that the seller – an older man – was a bit peculiar. “He treated it as a beauty pageant. He wanted to make sure his beloved home was being handed over to someone he was comfortable with,” the homeowner recalls. The house had its flaws: avocado-green toilets and a totally outdated kitchen. But the couple saw potential. And, for reasons unbeknownst to her, the seller took a shine to her. “We just clicked.” The house was sold off the market and the couple spent the next 10 months fixing it up.
