Historic Toronto meets modern urban living at this newly-listed Cabbagetown semi.

A picture-perfect family home, the Victorian residence that is 102 Seaton Street blends old-fashioned charm with sleek, urban architecture for a luxurious and well-connected living experience — right in the heart of the city.

The Cabbagetown neighbourhood is well on its way to becoming one of the downtown core’s most coveted spots to call home. Situated on a double-sized lot, this stately three-bedroom, three-bathroom home epitomizes timeless style and charm.

The home features well thought-out, intricate details like exposed brick, intricate crown moulding, whimsical-meets-sophisticated chandeliers, vintage doors, and stained glass windows — nods to its storied past. Meanwhile, elements like sleek interior window walls, spa-like bathrooms, skylights, and sophisticated wood wall paneling offer a modern, design-forward contrast. Further adding to this feel are custom, black-framed doors and windows in the office and upper-floor bedroom.

A bright and contemporary kitchen features a large central eat-in island, plus top-of-the-line appliances, and is further illuminated by two skylights. This central hub leads out to a beautiful backyard, which offers a peaceful juxtaposition to the hustle and bustle of the downtown streets just a few blocks away.

The breezy backyard oasis features a stunning new deck, skillfully curated gardens, a hot tub, a fireplace, and an outdoor shower.


Meanwhile, three charming bedrooms wait upstairs, the principal located on the home's third floor. This peaceful retreat is spacious and character-rich, complete with arched ceilings and a skylight. The two other bright bedrooms feature vintage doors and built-in shelving.


At a time when ground-level homes in the downtown core are becoming an increasing rarity, beyond being a warm and convenient place to call your own, this property undoubtedly makes for a wise investment. It’s safe to say that the value of this property will only increase in the next several years, given all of the development taking place in its surroundings (case in point: the nearby Corktown and Canary District).


Our Favourite Thing

While the design details shine in this home's interior, our favourite thing is the dreamy backyard oasis. The abundance of wood and an outdoor fireplace offer a peaceful, earthy vibe, while the hot tub is the type of spot you'd love to enjoy with a glass of wine. Beautifully lush gardens, filled with colourful blooms, add to the urban-escape feel. It seems a million miles away from the Eaton Centre or St. Lawrence Market — which are both just around the corner.


Furthermore, the home comes with the ability to build a laneway suite on top of the two-car garage, or create a basement apartment with its own separate entrance; either option translates to rental income generating potential.

Of course, the location of this home couldn't be better for those in the market for convenience and walkability. It sits within close proximity to transit, schools, grocery stores, convenience stores, parks, and community centres.

In summary, if you're a true urbanite who's looking to lay family roots in the heart of the city, 102 Seaton Street is calling.
