Toronto Heritage Mixed-Use Property Selling for $3M

A 151-year-old Toronto heritage mixed-use property is selling for $3 million.

The property, located at 161 Winchester Street in the Riverdale neighbourhood, is currently the home of Park Snacks. The popular café peddles ice cream, hot dogs, burgers and fries.

BlogTO describes the tourist destination as a “bustling” business.

The semi-detached building includes a one-bedroom loft above the café and a one-bedroom cottage in back.

According to the Cabbagetown Heritage Conservation District Committee, the property was built in 1872, and has been used as a bakery, grocery store, temperance house (or alcohol-free hall) and  shoemaker.

The semi-detached building was designated as a heritage property in 2004. Chestnut Park Real Estate is listing the property.
