A renovated rooftop deck that’s ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining is one of the many features of 488 Ontario St., says listing agent Daniel Bloch. It’s part of a “rare row of yellow brick Victorian homes.”

Built circa 1871 and featuring a traditional bay-and-gable design, the Cabbagetown home is “a combination of well-preserved original Victorian details and high-end contemporary renovations,” he says.

The three-bedroom, five-bathroom home has five fireplaces, extensive mouldings, ceilings that are up to 11 feet high and a main-floor powder room. The renovated eat-in kitchen has granite counters. The foyer has stained glass and crown moulding. The living room has a marble fireplace and the dining room has pocket doors.

A walk-in closet, a fireplace and a four-piece ensuite bathroom are features of the master suite. The second floor also includes a study. The third-floor bedroom has a cathedral ceiling and a fireplace.

A kitchen, a three-piece bathroom, a laundry room and a separate entrance are features of the lower level.

A landscaped front garden and one parking spot at the back of the 22×103-foot property are other features. Parks, schools and other amenities are within walking distance of the house.
