Loyal Housefly readers may remember my recent post House Crush Goes Green about HGTV host Emmanuel Belliveau‘s eco-friendly flip of a detached house in Danforth Village.  The house went on the market in early May for $679,000, later dropped in price to $649,000, and then to $619,000.  I’m pleased to report that the house has finally sold for $611,000.  This is obviously quite a bit below asking, but it is still one of the highest selling prices in the nabe. While the demographic of new residents is similar to other gentrifying areas like Leslieville or the Junction – newly married couples and young families – the area is still very much in transition and lacks the hipster amenities these nabes offer in spades.  I think buyers may have stretched to the premium price for an eco-friendly renovation had the house been located in an area that supports other elements of a green lifestyle, such as walkability, restaurants (lunch at Rawlicious, anyone?), and shopping (I’ll take two bamboo cotton onesies, please and thank-you Baby on the Hip).  It is a lovely home though and I’m sure the new residents will be very happy.
