61, 63 and 67 Vine were sold on June 12th at 100 percent of list price which is $800,000 total, this has been reported by two readers John U. and the another who has told the blog to refer to him as a reader a while ago.
As a recap for people who may not know, these three houses were much abused for many years (decades) by the owners, which greatly affected the avenue and the community. Many people were very happy to see them go up for sale, and a lot of people want to see new houses built on the site.
Yet there may be the loss of 67 a wonderful built home of a particular character that exhibits a great deal of the historical fabric, which appeared on so few houses in the Junction – two examples on this house the slate roof and the detailed eves which have more ornamentation than most houses in the Junction.
It is probably safe? to say that a series of new house will be built on the site, which will be good for the avenue, in that they will bring more people to live in the area, and will provide a fresh atmosphere. Or there could even be live/work units built.
Glad to see that these eye-sores in our community are soon to be gone.
