Cabbagetown's 103 Pembroke Street, a Gothic revival style Victorian house built in 1879, has been lovingly redeveloped and converted into a mansion containing four luxury suites which are now on sale.
103 Pembroke Street was originally part of the estate owned by George W. Allen who developed most of the property around 1854, one year before serving as Toronto's 11th mayor. The mansion at 103 Pembroke was built in 1879 by Frederick J.A. Stewart, a tea broker and land developer. The mansion changed hands many times during the 20th century; in the 1920s, it was even run as a boarding house for workers and labourers. More recently, 103 Pembroke was acquired by the father-daughter team of Mac and Sonal Champsee, of The Rainbow Group, who redeveloped it once again into a luxury residence.
The high-end Cabbagetown suites are all spacious two-bedroom units of approximately 1,400 square feet across two storeys. Ceilings are between 10 and 12 feet high, each suite has a gas fireplace and luxury finishes which recall the historic grandeur of the home. Kitchens will feature six high-end appliances plus a stove hood and granite countertops and bathrooms will be marble. Prices at 103 Pembroke will range from $500,000 to $600,000 and include garage parking at the rear.
Viewing of 103 Pembroke is by appointment only. Interested parties are suggested to contact Brian Elder of Royal LePage Real Estate at 416 921-1112 or visit online.
