A Toronto prohibition-era home sold in just seven days for the high price of $4.6 million — $100,000 over the asking price.

The breathtaking 1920’s-built home, located at 80 Lytton Boulevard in the Lytton Park area, was listed on February 9 for $4,495,000 and sold just one week later for $4,595,000.

The inside of the home is just as grand as the outside, with two large bedrooms, plus an additional two bedrooms in the basement. There are also four bathrooms, one of which even has a library in it.

If you ever thought finding closet space in an old home might be hard, think again. This house has a walk-in closet that might be bigger than some Toronto studio apartments.

The buyer of this home will also be able to enjoy the luxury of taking a bath and having dozens of books right at their fingertips, thanks to the sizeable library in the master bathroom.

Although the home got scooped up quickly, it hasn’t always had such luck. It was listed back in 2015 and 2016 and never sold.

“Since it was last listed, the home had gone through some renovations including upgrades to kitchen, bathrooms, and flooring, which seem to have been well designed and keep with the Lytton Park aesthetic in mind, which is traditionally more classic and timeless in design,” said Zoocasa agent Doug Vukasovic.

Vukasovic added that this home may have had a harder time selling in the past because it only has two bedrooms while most homes in the neighbourhood have three to five.

The finished basement adds two additional bedrooms and even has its own bathroom, making it a perfectly comfortable place to stay.

The kitchen, which has a large island as its centrepiece, and is an aspiring chef’s dream, with plenty of counter space, a large fridge, and a gas range stove. The nearby formal dining room is perfect for entertaining several of your closest friends.

The Toronto prohibition-era home is on a south-facing corner lot, and thanks to the abundance of windows throughout it, plenty of sunlight shines in throughout the day.

Outside there is a large patio and a two-car garage. The previous owner has said that the garage served as a popular speakeasy during prohibition, but Zoocasa was not able to confirm this.

After seeing everything this house has to offer, it’s not too surprising that it was sold so quickly.
