Located on a quiet, tree-lined, one-way street this lovely home is sure to impress! Originally built in 1892, it features high ceilings, 4 bedrooms, basement in-law suite with private entrance, beautiful backyard, detached 1-car garage and just a short walk from the iconic Christie Pits Park. Commuting is a breeze with both the Ossington and Christie TTC subway stations only 5 minutes from your front door. Prefer to bike? This home is surrounded by dedicated bike lanes on Shaw St, Bloor St, Harbord St, and Ossington Ave. Perfect for anyone who prefers to get around the city on 2 wheels!
The main floor is a wonderful and inviting space with a living room featuring hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. It is open to the dining room and large eat-in kitchen that features a breakfast bar as well as ample cabinet and counter space. There is also a good-sized mudroom just off the kitchen which has the main floor laundry and plenty of space for coats, shoes, winter boots, and strollers! The backyard is a wonderful retreat with a wood deck, mature maple tree, beautiful landscaping, and stone walkway. It leads to the detached 1-car garage that has electricity, a surprising amount of storage space, and exits onto a quiet laneway.
The upper level features a beautifully renovated 4 pc. bathroom complete with a clawfoot tub. The master bedroom has great space with a double closet and sitting area that overlooks the backyard. The front two bedrooms offer the flexibility to be used as kids’ bedrooms, an office and a bedroom, or the wall can be removed to create an oversized bedroom with two closets. The lower level features a 1-bedroom in-law suite with a full kitchen, 3-piece bathroom, good storage space, and separate, covered entrance.
This wonderful home is also great for families who enjoy walking to school. Both Montrose Junior Public School and Harbord Collegiate Institute are less than a 10-minute walk. And for pet lovers, Bickford park is only 3 minutes away and features a large dog park for your favourite canine to run wild! Not to mention, you are also a short walk to all the shops, restaurants, and cafes on Bloor West, Ossington, and Little Italy.
