87 Gloucester St.

Home of the Week: $3.29 million for a skinny heritage home with a solarium in the village

A piece of Toronto’s heritage at 87 Gloucester St. is on the market for $3.295 million near Church Street. The protected Victorian was built in 1879 and was officially listed as a Toronto heritage home in 1979. Preserved elements of this property include the exterior facade, crown mouldings, and a wood-burning fireplace.

While much of the home’s original character remains, the previous homeowners expanded the property with a modern family room and airy solarium. The semi-detached house has three bedrooms and four bathrooms.

High ceilings and the home’s original mouldings are quick to catch the eye in the foyer.
