Casa Loma
Where: 730 Huron St.
What: 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2,200 square feet
How much: Sold for $2,000,000
Just steps from Casa Loma, this place is a new-build in a historic part of the city where many detached homes sell for $4 ¬≠million or more. There’s no backyard here, but each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom, and there are two decks, one with views of the castle. Plus, the property is districted for the much-sought-after Brown Junior Public School. There are also well-regarded private schools nearby.
Here’s the kitchen:

Where: 37 Galley Ave.
What: 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2,175 square feet
How much: Sold for $2,000,000
The sellers of this pre-1915 home wanted to retain some of its old-fashioned charm. So, when they renovated the interior, they preserved the baseboards, interior doors, plaster crowns and ornate fireplaces. The basement is just roughed in, so the buyers may still have a bit of construction ahead of them.

What: 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 3,941 square feet

Most lots in Vaughan are around 40 feet wide, but this one spans 50, which gives the house a bit of extra room to sprawl. There’s a three-car tandem garage, and each of the four bedrooms has its own ensuite bathroom. The house is a new-build, so the basement isn’t finished and the backyard hasn’t been fenced in.
