Laneway Home and Triplex in Queen West For Sale

Impressive Laneway Home for Sale at 54 Croft Street

Over the years, I’ve had countless discussions about this home – with most of them revolving around “If only…”.  Many of those conversations involved the people at the forefront of the recent push for laneway housing in the city (which I’m delighted to see come true) but just as many were people who admired this home for precisely what it is: a home of consequential design, in a discrete location along a much-admired street, that
