THE BUY­ERS:

Matthew Naranjo, the 38-year-old owner of Ter­roir Wine Im­ports, and Qumi Naranjo, a 31-year-old ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant at Nestlé.

THE STORY:

Matthew and Qumi had been dat­ing for nearly a decade, each of them still liv­ing with their par­ents. In 2016, they de­cided to buy a house and start plan­ning a wed­ding. They hoped to find a prop­erty some­where be­tween Spad­ina and High Park. It quickly be­came clear that their $600,000 bud­get wouldn’t even get them a two-bed­room town­house south of Bloor, so they be­gan to scour the Junc­tion area.
