As Toronto's real estate market continues to adjust, one of the city's most famed homes has taken a substantial hit.

After four months on the market, an unsual abode at 118 Sorauren Avenue sold last week for $2,375,000. When the property last changed hands in November 2021, it fetched $2.8M. It was put back on the market just six months later, although the $2.85M price tag failed to attract a sale.

Dubbed "Sorauren 118," the home is one-half of a recognizable residential development by Ancerl Studio, a Toronto-based architectural and design firm.

Coupled with "Sorauren 116," the properties appear from a distance as a single unit, their pitched roofs and triangular features melding together. Upon closer inspection, a distinct gap between the two Roncesvalles homes is revealed.

Billed as an "architectural masterpiece," 118 Sorauren Avenue combines industrial elements with modern flair - hardwood floors, exposed brick, wooden beams, and black steel accents can be found throughout. Despite its svelte appearance, the three-storey abode spans more than 2,000 sq. ft.


Thirty-foot cathedral ceilings and large industrial windows create an airy feel throughout the open-concept main level. The dining area flows effortlessly into the living room, which features a water vapour fireplace. The kitchen, with its panelled appliances, marble breakfast bar, and floating shelves, lies beyond, gazing onto the fenced-in backyard.

The second level houses two bedrooms -- one has a roomy built-in closet, while the other overlooks the front garden. The primary suite sprawls across the entirety of the third floor, with a glass catwalk connecting the sleeping area to the sun-soaked five-piece ensuite. It offers a plethora of closets and a private balcony, too.

Despite the recent price cut, 118 Sorauren Avenue maintains its position as one of the most striking homes on one Toronto's most sought-after streets.
