It’s pretty tough to argue about homes with “good bones”. And it’s also pretty challenging to argue about homes in great neighbourhoods. A bigger obstacle is arguing about homes close to amazing parks. And shopping. Oh, and great restaurants. Ok – so, here’s a great house, with great bones, in a perfect neighbourhood close to great stuff. No argument from me.
Welcome to 161 Bellwoods Avenue.
This handsome semi-detached home is located on a tree-lined street, just one block to the city’s cherished Trinity Bellwoods Park.
Extensively updated, while maintaining many period details and charms, the property is ideal for anyone looking for a spacious home, on a deep lot, with a private yard and 2 car garage parking. While much has been attended to by the current owners – with updated electrical, windows, roof, kitchens and bathrooms – this property also presents a superb opportunity to further expand and refine a sturdy home in a perfect neighbourhood.
The main level presents and oversized living room / dining room, complete with a STUV wood burning fireplace at the centre. It’s ideal for daily living and more serious entertaining. Newly-sanded hardwood floors are complimented by overhead lighting, while a large front window looks out onto the porch. Beyond is the home’s kitchen, with updated cabinetry and appliances including a gas range, french-door fridge, dishwasher and microwave. The centre island provides additional storage and is a great breakfast spot.
To the rear of the home is a terrific flexible space, equally suited to a breakfast room as a den or study with large windows and a walk-out to the garden. A discrete powder room is also located on this level.
Upstairs are 3 generous bedrooms, including an oversized primary bedroom. Plans exist to add a primary ensuite to this room, and vastly expand the storage options by slightly encroaching on the middle bedroom. That middle bedroom is huge! And the third bedroom provides ample space, with views over the rear yard. The home’s main bathroom is located in the centre of the floorplan.
While unfinished, the lower level of the home presents endless opportunity to further expand living space thanks to its generous size.
Our back is a good-sized yard, leading to a large 2 car garage with parking right off the laneway.
This home presents a stylish and spacious opportunity to live in one of the city’s most prized neighbourhoods.
