A charming home on one of the best streets in Riverdale which was just named Toronto Life’s 2nd best neighbourhood in the entire city. Lovely tree-lined Tennis Crescent is an unbeatable family-friendly location.  The breathtaking skyline views from Riverdale Park, highly coveted Withrow Avenue Junior Public School, the famous Withrow Park farmers market, two TTC streetcar lines, Broadview subway station, and the shops, restaurants, and cafes of the Danforth are all just a few minutes walk from the front door!

From the moment you step onto the front porch you will appreciate the beautiful renovations, original features, and meticulous upkeep throughout this wonderful family home. The living room features original hardwood floors, large south facing window, and a fully functional, wood burning fireplace – the perfect spot for warming up after a winter’s day of skating and toboggan runs at Riverdale Park! The adjoining dining room is a warm and inviting space for entertaining. It retains original details including the coffered ceiling, plate rail, trim, stained glass window, and hardwood floors.

The large eat-in kitchen is newly renovated and is a foodie’s dream come true! It features brand new, soft close cabinetry with under cabinet lighting, butcher block countertops, subway tile backsplash, oversized sink, ample storage, high-end stainless steel appliances, recessed lighting, and attractive, highly durable flooring. The absolute showstopper is the professional quality Blue Star gas range which will have you cooking like a master chef in no time.  Be sure not to miss the rear deck and large backyard which is an amazing canvas for a green thumb and home to a stunning Maple tree that provides plenty of summertime shade.

The upper level features hardwood floors, a 3-piece washroom, and master bedroom with wall-to-wall closets and a beautiful 4-piece ensuite. The basement is another must see space. It has been exquisitely renovated and features high ceilings, brand new tile floors, built-in bookshelves, excellent storage space, 2-piece bathroom, and a well laid out laundry room complete with a laundry sink, folding counter, sorting area, drying rail, and front-loading washer and dryer. It also connects to a partially finished utility room with a second utility sink and additional storage space.
