This five-bedroom, five-bathroom charmer on a High Park Boulevard corner lot was listed at $2,365,000, and sold after just four days on the market. Built in 1913, it's been updated fully—the kitchen has a huge marble island and big, shiny high-end appliances, and they've put in a new roof and electrical system—but the gorgeous original woodwork and floors are intact. Check out the amazing Art Nouveau light fixture on the newel post; classiest ring-toss ever. The built-in bench in the landing's bay window would be the perfect spot to curl up with a book (or a laptop, more likely). The top floor could be an ideal office space, or a private retreat for a teenager. Even the basement is stylish and bright, the ductwork hidden by coffered molding. The house looks a lot different than it did in 2011, when it was last on the market (for $1,299,000); the renovations have made the interior a lot lighter and brighter, but they've also given the house a little bit of that generic white marble/slate-grey-paint sameness. Have a look at the photos at the end of the linked gallery; it's kind of a shame they didn't at least preserve the incredible murals on the dining room walls and ceiling. What's your take?
