2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms
A rare opportunity to own a little bit of the country in the middle of Toronto. This charming, country cottage home is surrounded by parks and the absolute best of Riverdale. It features an incredible 55 feet of frontage and sits nestled atop a quiet, family filled, one-way street with a picturesque front porch overlooking the terraced front yard. This beautiful home has timeless curb appeal and is sure to be love at first sight!
The main floor is a warm and inviting space featuring exceptionally large rooms, solid maple hardwood floors, California shutters, and excellent natural light from the sunny southern exposure. The living room will make you forget the hustle and bustle of the city as soon as you take a seat. It is a perfect room for all seasons with french doors to the garden for bringing in the crisp spring air or hosting summer garden parties and a gas fireplace for warming up after a winter skate or cool fall day.
The dining room features a vaulted ceiling and is a great space for hosting dinner parties and family gatherings. It is open to the oversized kitchen which features a gas range, excellent cabinet and countertop space, and large skylight. It is big enough that you will never have to worry about having too many cooks in the kitchen! Next to the dining room is the rare main floor family room which features a wood burning fireplace with a floor to ceiling brick façade and built-in bookshelves. There is also a 3-piece bathroom with an oversized shower, walk in closet, and a second sliding door walkout to the backyard. A secluded garden paradise, the backyard features gorgeous landscaping, tiered stone patios, and mature trees. It can be seen from almost every room in the house and is as peaceful as it is beautiful… a gardener’s dream come true!
The main floor master bedroom has plenty of large windows and more than enough space to easily accommodate an office or seating area. The second-floor loft is a unique and wonderful space with seemingly limitless possibilities. It could serve as a guest bedroom, art or yoga studio, tv room, hobby room, library, office… whatever you desire! It receives excellent natural light and has a walkout to a good-sized rooftop deck. The basement is another space that can be utilized for a variety of purposes with excellent ceiling height and brand-new flooring.
This home is truly one of a kind and is perfect for upsizers, downsizers, or anyone looking for a unique space in one of Toronto’s best neighbourhoods. It is mere steps from the 21-acre Withrow Park – one of the largest in the city which features an off-leash dog park, outdoor hockey rink, tennis courts, playground, splash pad, clubhouse, and the famous Withrow Park Farmers Market. It is also walking distance to the Chester TTC Subway Station, Carrot Commons, and some of the best shops, restaurants, and cafes on the Danforth.
