Is that Wedgwood, or are you just happy to see me? Take in this charming, 2 storey, semi-detached Victorian house in the heart of Roncesvalles Village. Renovated throughout, it has 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms, and a generous square footage in which to build your nest. It has hardwood floors throughout, pot lights for days, which make the ceilings seem extra high, and has a notable amount of original character still intact. So bright and shiny, like an antique penny that’s just been cleaned! The formal living room sports a good ol’ fashioned fireplace, while the spacious modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and Caesarstone counter tops. I’m down with the old, and I’m into the new! Each spacious bedrooms boasts a closet, which is kind of a big deal because, fun fact, in Victorian days, houses in Toronto were taxed by the number of rooms they contained, and closets counted as rooms. Consequently, to trip up the tax man, many Torontonians of the day elected not to have closets built into their homes. Rest assured, at 208 Galley there are closets for all. It has updated bathrooms (hooray!), central air conditioning (because in this heat, I know you’re wondering), and the most adorable of urban yards. What are you going to do back there? I don’t know, but it’s entirely up to you. The unfinished basement is just loaded with potential, so bring your dreams along with you. This house may be old, but it has some new tricks up its sleeve. And so much life left to live! Offers August 15th at 7pm. Contact me today for a showing. xo
This unique, cottage-style home on Howard Park Avenue is truly a pearl in a bed of fancy oysters. It’s the most charming detached, 1 ½ storey house in the area, with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and an incredibly deep lot. Loaded with character, it has hardwood floors throughout, crown moulding accents, paned windows and French doors aplenty - it’s certainly not wanting for style and grace. Has a galley kitchen with butcher block countertops, a high-end gas stove, built-in dishwasher, and it overlooks the backyard. And what a beautiful backyard it is – scope out that deck, with walk-out from the dining room! Think of the fun you can have with all of that space. Are there any gardeners in the house? Rocking out in a 1 ½ storey digs means vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms. Yes please! The master even boasts a skylight for that extra bit of airy magic. Has a partially finished basement. Located in the midst of Roncesvalles Village, High Park, and in close proximity to Dundas West, it’s a killer spot to call home. It’s in a great school district, is only minutes away from the new rail link to the airport, has a walk score of 89 and a transit score of 100. No car? No problem. This house may be wee but with so many little details to note, you’ll instantly fall in love. Offers Accepted Feb 10th, 2016. Contact me today for a showing! xo
I hope you're not made of sugar, because you're about to melt. This incredible 2-level apartment in a 3-storey detached Victorian house is certainly a site to behold, in all it's newly renovated glory! Located on Westminster, just off Sorauren, the location doesn't get better than this (assuming you're a West-ender, of course)! It has hardwood floors throughout, a galley kitchen with cut outs and stainless steel appliances, and more windows and skylights than you'll know what to do with. Take note of how spacious, bright and airy this apartment is - but, like, actually. With an ethereal vibe to it, it feels more like an oasis than a trendy new apartment in the city of Toronto. Has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a stackable washer and dryer ensuite, and a walk-out to a private deck off the second level with a great view of Sorauren Park. And 2 parking spots. That's right, parking for 2! That's really exciting. If you're still in one piece after all of that, get yourself up and at it and make a home out of this show stopper. Available immediately.
