Interesting house for sale

49 Church Street. From Zoocasa

We’ve all seen this house, uncomfortably close to the CP tracks with a fascinating Grand Trunk Railway, Weston Station mural on the side. The image by Michele Van Maurik, is now showing its age, having withstood the elements for over 20 years by the tracks at 49 Church Street. The house is advertised on various agents’ sites but the most complete set of images seems to be on Zoocasa.

Because of the lack of details on the house itself, I assume that the value is in the site. The 73 x 165-foot lot has its longer side along the tracks.

Looking north alongside the tracks. From Zoocasa.

It’s advertised at $499,000.

Update: Thanks to a reader who comments that the house next door at 51 Church Street is also for sale. It’s being offered at $599,000. This would combine to give a lot measuring 99 x 155 feet (approximately).
