Circa 1892 this family home boasts Victorian splendour combined with history and elegance on lovely tree-lined Langley Avenue. This charming, detached, two-and-a-half-storey home features a private drive with 2 car parking and sits on a leafy 37' x 119' lot that will transport you to another world.
The main floor features two original fireplaces, excellent ceiling height, wood floors throughout, and numerous period details. Through the foyer is the gracious living room complete with stain glass window, wood trim, and ceiling medalion. The adjacent sitting room, with its antique wood burning fireplace has floor-to-ceiling glass doors that walk out to the outdoor patio. Filled with natural light and beautiful views of the garden, it is a wonderful entertaining space.
The family sized eat-in kitchen features ample cupboard space, a gas stove, back stairs leading to the second-floor study/bedroom, plenty of sunlight through three good sized windows and a second walk out to the back garden.
The Victorian asthetic continues on the second level which boasts three bedrooms, a study (which could be used as a fourth bedroom), and a renovated washroom complete with free standing soaker tub. The third floor, which is currently an open space, could be turned into an amazing master bedroom complete with ensuite bathroom and walk out to a rooftop deck.
Anna and Brian's favourite space is their large back garden and side patio where they have frequently dined and entertained over the past 35 years. Complete with two stone patios, beautiful trees, hedges, flowers, and Ivy running across the exterior walls, it is a truly unique and enchanting space in the heart of the city.
The basement has a three piece washroom and unfinished utility and storage rooms with 6'8" ceiling height just awaiting creativity and renovation - a new owner's personal touch.
Conveniently located near the best shops, restaurants, and cafes that the Danforth has to offer, this amazing home is close to two major parks, Riverdale Park to the West and Withrow Park to the East. Withrow School which offers French Immersion is a short 5 minute walk and the famous Rooster Café is just around the corner. Getting to and from the city centre is a breeze by either public transit via the TTC Broadview streetcars and subway or by car via the DVP which is a two minute drive from your front door.
