All across Toronto there are residential streets lined with uniform, unremarkable homes. So when someone breaks the mould with a strange front yard or weird architecture, it tends to stand out. Some express their individuality with front yard ornaments, others through bold design.
Here my picks for the weirdest homes in Toronto.
The half house
During construction of the Village by the Grange, many of the homes that once lined the west side of St. Patrick St. were bought and demolished by developer Windlass. The owner of #54 1/2, however, was a staunch holdout. While the other properties in the six-house terrace were demolished, the middle one stayed standing, its pitched roof sliced perfectly in half.
