Add a 2nd house to these 6 corner-lot properties listed for sale

Garden suites can be an impressive addition to most properties in Toronto.

But for corner-lot properties, they have the unique ability to let you add a “2nd mini-house” to the lot, that is almost completely independent from the existing house, because it faces a completely different street.  It can be separately metered for hydro and gas.

With the corner configuration, you have no tenants walking through your back yard, deliveries are made easily to the new mini-house, and for all intents and purposes, to an observer standing on the corner, it looks like two houses on two different lots.

Below are SIX properties currenty listed for sale, that would be ideal candidates for a 2nd house on the lot.  Adding a garden suite is that 2nd house!
