The Chase A mil­lion­dol­lar find near Bloor and Christie

A fam­ily find house hunt­ing seren­ity by sell­ing off their old prop­erty first

Toronto Life - - News - By gra­ham slaugh­ter

The buy­ers: Michael Krauss, a 52-year-old cin­e­matog­ra­pher; his wife, Lhara Eben, a 46-year-old writer, ac­tor and pro­ducer; and their nineyear-old son, Oliver.

The story: Lhara and Michael were liv­ing in a Dupont and Spad­ina semi that they’d in­her­ited from Lhara’s par­ents, who bought it in 1974 as an in­vest­ment prop­erty. They adored the kid-friendly neigh­bour­hood, but the heavy traf­fic on Dupont made it dan­ger­ous for Oliver to play out­side. They de­cided to look for a place on a quiet side street some­where nearby. Be­fore they set out, they sold the Dupont house, which gave them the lux­ury of know­ing ex­actly what they could af­ford to spend on a new home. Their ini­tial bud­get was $1.25 mil­lion.
