House & Home Real Estate

Reimagined Retro at 1295 Monmouth

Monmouth Road is in an area of the city that we frequently write about. It’s a street that buzzes with the energy of those it tends to attract; lovers of historical townhomes, city dwellers, walkers, bikers and creatives who have a penchant for urban living, culture and design. Another thing we love about it is the mix of price points – the homes range from affordable (like this starter for $199,000) to more executive levels up the street. So if you’re just starting out, you may be interested to know that this newly restyled listing is ready for a #BCL first look!

This small, but mighty, 3 bedroom townhouse is currently home to a dear friend with a background in and passion for interior spaces, books, antiquities and the outer limits. We are in awe of her commitment to the laborious hours she’s spent restoring the home and getting it prepped for market (based on some early consultations with our BCL team). Others would have opted for a quick & cheap fix, but not this team! Together, with her reigning thrift Queen sensibilities, and our ‘restyling’ approach to staging, we were able to hone in on the spirit of the space and accentuate some truly refreshing retro vibes.

This turn of the century charmer is in the centre of it all, close to independent shops, restaurants and a mere zip across the border to Detroit. Although, the lucky new owner may go through a period of hibernation because now that it’s ready to go, we never want to leave!

1295 Monmouth didn’t last long, as we knew it wouldn’t (it sold in a matter of days for 70k over the asking price). Contact us at hello[at] if you’d like more information on what we can do to help you get your home ready for the market!

Onto the next!!
