Set amidst a lovely backdrop that incorporates lines of mature trees, this elegant semi-detached home is a stone’s throw away from the University of Toronto. Its proximity to academic energy compliments its sense of architectural intelligence, both in its stately red brick exterior and contemporary finishes that grace the interior of this recently renovated home.

Located in the South Annex, the appeal of this home is not just the property itself, but is also about what is offered to the lucky owner, right at their doorstep, as a matter of their daily life.

Minutes from your own dining room table is Harbord House, with its selection of craft beer, along with French cheese shop Chabichou. Foodies will relish in calling Harbord Village their neighbour- with all of its acclaimed eateries and gastronomic delights a mere five-minute walk away. A few minutes in the other direction will deliver you to bustling Bloor St. W. Meeting with friends? Looking for an evening together to relish in each other’s company and good conversation? A quick walk away is the Victory Cafe, the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema and Lee’s Palace.

Those coveting green space will appreciate being within walking distance to Christie Pit Park with its outdoor rink, playing fields, splash pad and playground, and to Bickford Park.

This three-storey semi-detached dwelling with enchanting curb appeal (we love the brickwork), was constructed new in 1998 which you know, if you’ve been actively searching for a residence, is extremely rare to find in the downtown core. Being a more recent build offers the benefits of four full levels of living (the lower level hardly feels like the typical dank damp city basement), and requires significantly less maintenance than surrounding 100+ year old dwellings.

Better still, this executive residence was recently renovated with classic contemporary finishes and fittings. From the ground up, this stylish space has been thoughtfully re-organized to suit today’s busy lifestyles.

On the first level, the well-proportioned foyer with porcelain tile floors, discreet powder room and front hall closet welcomes your guests. This welcoming foyer is the perfect transition into the entertainment space, which boasts wood floors, a gas fireplace, and recessed lighting. We love the proportions of this space, and the generous windows with bathe the space in natural light. The newly renovated eat-in kitchen is brimming with panache, with ample storage, a terrific centre island and calibre appliances. We adore its connection to the landscaped city garden with its southern aspect.

On the second level, a master sleeping sanctuary boasts vaulted skylit ceilings, wall to wall closets and a fresh ensuite washroom. Two additional bedrooms have wood floors and closets, with a second renovated 4-piece washroom (also a semi-ensuite) serving these rooms. Unlike the sister half of this property, this house also has the benefit of a top floor attic aerie with walk-out to a cityvista deck. Well-suited to a home office or media room, this could also be used as a fourth bedroom if required.

The lower level offers great opportunity and additional living space, whether it be as used as nanny/teen quarters or an optional non-conforming income supplement. Having its own separate entrance, this floor could be converted into a studio apartment with kitchenette (currently roughed-in), 3-piece washroom and laundry facilities. One could also annex the lower level hobby area to create a larger lower level suite, or it could be converted into a second laundry room with minimal effort (the plumbing and drains are on the opposite wall). Unquestionably, this space plan offers enormous flexibility depending on your particular needs, wishes and wants.

Having a south-facing city lot, the landscaped garden has sliding doors for parking as required. At the moment, the Seller has parked on the right-of-way granted the adjoining neighbour without incidence, which has remained uninterrupted during her ownership.

For those who want the luxury and privilege of an exceptionally-beautiful newly-renovated home in a Triple AAA location, this is a phenomenal opportunity. Available for occupancy in 60 to 90 days, this is a worthy offering we’re delighted to bring to market. Here it is featured in Toronto Life Magazine!
