When I was a kid, the absolute coolest and most popular kid on the street had a pool. He also went on to be very successful in life. I’m just saying…
This grand, detached family home is perfectly situated to enjoy the conveniences of Roncesvalles’ shops and restaurants, while also being only 2 blocks from High Park.
If convenience isn’t enough, the home’s meticulously restored interior and stunning rear yard are bound to impress. Inside, period details and the charm of this 1910 home abound, but with modern conveniences and updates. For mom and dad, for example, there’s a generous master suite complete with dressing room and spa-like ensuite. For the kids, there are ample bedrooms and a lower level finished with a family room, which could easily be expanded to a full teenager suite.
While it’s said that ‘what’s on the inside is what counts’, we have to boast a bit about the outside: a rear yard transformed into a summer retreat, equally appropriate for afternoon pool parties with the kids as it is for grown up affairs with fancy cocktails for adults. This tranquil space is beautifully landscaped, with careful attention to lighting. It’s like a cottage, sans commute.
The carport doubles as a covered living area in the summer, but is quickly turned back to private parking as required. This inventive use of space is utterly urban, and very clever.
With modern amenities, a remarkable rear yard, proximity to the finest the west end has to offer and charm in abundance, this rare opportunity in Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighbourhood is a perfect urban home.
