64 King up for sale

One of Weston’s most remarkable—and controversial—buildings is up for sale. 64 King, home to In Touch Retirement, is on the market for $3.76 million.

In Touch Retirement made the news in 2010, in 2014, and 2015 when the Toronto Star sent an undercover reporter to document deplorable conditions at the facility. The operator, Elaine Lindo, went to jail for 15 days in 2015 for failing to follow regulations.

64 King was home to the storied Tyrrell family, including Joseph Tyrell, after whom the Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller is named.

  1. Seems like an ideal property and location to repurpose as a quality daycare facility for the Weston community.

  2. Are there any conditions preserving the house? Does the blue plaque make the property something to preserve, possibly as a community resources, like a day care centre with possibly space for a Weston museum room?

  3. I went through the property when it was for sale waaaay back (possibly for around $450,000-ish). I also remember (while returning a lost resident) how my eyes burned while standing in the main entrance.

  4. If the price comes down a bit and if this is not a heritage designated building, I could see a builder coming in and turning that lot into 4 or 5 properties.

  5. Is that horrible woman from the Star articles the owner of the home still?! If so, where is the justice in this world. How does a woman like that deserve to sell a home for $3 million dollars and go live on a sunny island somewhere. There’d better be a special place in hell for people like her. Hope the karma comes back to her ten fold.

    1. Exactly what I thought. She becomes a multimillionaire, having spent 15 days in jail for all the broken regulations and mismanagement and pain.
