A rare opportunity to live on a beautiful 45’ x 150’ ravine lot in a home that has been lovingly owned by the same family since its original purchase from the developers in 1959! Following a sizeable addition, it features 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms over 4 spacious levels with a built-in 1 car garage and private driveway with parking for 2 additional vehicles. Located on tree-lined Birkdale Road, it is walking distance to schools, parks, Midland and Ellesmere LRT Stations, and just a short drive to Kennedy Station for an easy commute downtown via TTC or GO Train. It’s also close to the 401, as well as shops, restaurants, and big box stores at Kennedy Commons and Scarborough Town Centre.
The main floor features a large foyer, office w/ built-in desk, den, 4-piece bathroom, and master bedroom with wall to wall closets and 3-piece ensuite bathroom. Just off the foyer, the upper level living and dining rooms are a wonderful, light filled space with vaulted ceilings and plenty of windows overlooking the east facing backyard with sweeping ravine views. The kitchen offers plenty of counterspace, cabinets, breakfast bar, and walk-out to a side deck – the perfect place for summertime BBQ’s!
The second floor has 4 good sized bedrooms, all with ample closet space and built-in desks. There is also a 5-piece bathroom, 2 linen closets, and supplemental furnace to provide extra comfort on those cold winter nights! The spacious lower level family room measures an impressive 26’ x 13’ with a built-in desk, floor to ceiling windows, and walkout to the backyard. It could be used as a yoga or art studio, fitness centre, kids’ playroom, games or hobby room, guest or nanny suite… the possibilities are endless! There is also an adjacent utility room with washer, dryer, double laundry sink and large crawl space that offers plenty of storage.
And last but not least! The private and secluded backyard will make the city melt away as soon as you step outside. Backing onto the West Highland Creek, this quiet ravine lot features a stone patio, beautiful mature trees, and a large in-ground pool. The concrete, fenced pool is the perfect place to relax on those long summer days or cooling off after a busy day at work. It gets plenty of afternoon sun and is sure to be the site of summer gatherings and pool parties for years to come!
