Property Description

Steeped in history, this corner property offers a unique opportunity in prime Cabbagetown. From apothecary to pharmacy, antique dealer gallery to massage therapy practice, 78 Amelia Street has offered prominent positioning for an owner-user or value add investor since being constructed circa 1891. Historically, the intersection of Amelia and Sackville was a merchant corner with a butcher and baker on the southeast corner, and the apothecary on the northeast that served the immediate neighbourhood. Over the course of its history, key aspects of the property’s architecture have remained, including mouldings, cornices, ceiling height and most interestingly, its non-conforming use in a residential neighbourhood.

The property permits the use of the ground floor for commercial purposes and the second level for residential, allowing for the ideal live/work solution. The unique façade and prominent visibility with its northeast corner location, have defined this property as a neighbourhood landmark. In addition, the property offers the potential for single-family or multi-unit residential use.

The ground floor and combined basement offer 1,678 square feet (approximately) with an open main space, corner windows, two partitioned rooms and a full bathroom on the ground floor. The strategic open access to the lower level leads to a large kitchen, a third partitioned room and a secondary full bathroom. This unit is separate from the residence and offers a walkout to the rear courtyard.

Comprised of the second and third floors, the separate owner’s suite offers two bedrooms, including a generous primary suite on the third floor, two bathrooms and a sun deck. The utmost privacy is provided through the separate side entrance.

With its strategic corner location, Cabbagetown recognition, and the wide potential varying commercial and residential uses, 78 Amelia Street offers an exceptional opportunity for a savvy and discerning purchaser.
