Home of the Week: $2.5 million for a three-storey custom home in the Annex with an income suite

Standing three storeys high at 257 Borden St. is a modern brick home with lots of living space. Along with a third level loft, this 2017 custom build offers a finished lower level that can be used as an income suite. The current owners were able to rent it out for $2,000 per month.

This home makes the most of its 2,400 square feet with three bedrooms, four bathrooms and multiple balconies. It’s located steps away from Bloor Street West in the Annex neighbourhood and is listed for a cool $2.499 million.

The kitchen is beautifully designed with two-tone cabinetry, a white brick backsplash and gold accents. There’s tons of storage and open shelving, along with a spacious island that provides extra counter space.
