It typically isn’t news when a home in Summerhill sells for $1.275 million. It is, however, when that home isn’t even on a street. 40R Shaftesbury Ave. is an example of a rare but growing phenomenon in the real estate scene: the laneway home.
The 850-square-foot, two-storey detached dwelling may pose some challenges for your Uber Eats driver, but the property makes up for it with a fantastic location, two bedrooms, two baths and proximity to top tier schools. The dwelling sits on a 40-foot by 18-foot lot and does not come with parking, but it offers a spacious rooftop garden space along with skylights throughout to bring in as much daylight as possible.
