Dreaming in DanforthSend This Listing To A Friend
Looking for a family home in the city? This large 3+1 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom detached home balances city life and residential neighbourhood, boasting quiet tree-lined streets in East York – just a 10 minute walk from the Danforth!
This 2 storey solid brick home was built with generous proportions and a huge 2 car garage. Having guests over? The driveway fits 6 cars!
Curb appeal here is gorgeous, with wide front steps leading up to a lovely front porch. The yard is low maintenance and the porch is spacious, in case you wanted to join the friendly porch sitters.
Step into an open concept living area, where natural light from the windows floods the room. There are two stained glass windows here, on each side of the fireplace. The walls are freshly painted, and the hardwood floors gleam throughout the main floor.
The family room, just off the kitchen, has an attractive skylight and powder room. It’s an awesome set-up to hang out with family or guests as you prepare a meal. Step out onto the rear deck and find the perfect place to enjoy peaceful summer evenings. From charming details like stained glass windows, to main details like big and bright bedrooms, there are a lot of wins here. The second floor carpet is new throughout!
The basement is a versatile space that functions as a fourth bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. It can easily be opened up and changed into a functional rec or family room. There are extra storage options here too, between the crawl space and cold room. Updates like new carpets are a huge bonus – but the real treat is the unsexy money spent: a new furnace and AC less than a year ago!
There’s a strong sense of community in this neighbourhood, so it’s no surprise that neighbours on the street stay a long time. This quiet neighbourhood is close to epic amenities like parks, baseball diamonds, ice rinks, a library, tennis club, community centre and more. It’s a 10 minute walk to Michael Garron Hospital, and a 10 minute walk to Danforth Ave.
