Classic yet modern 1930’s bungalowSend This Listing To A Friend
In a land of open concept living, this classic 1930’s bungalow is open, spacious, and inviting. It’s a perfect place to call home, 321 Mortimer Avenue.
Walk into a quaint and classic foyer. A place for boots, coats, mail, keys, dog leashes, all the bits and pieces. But it’s the kitchen that needs to be talked about! It’s newly renovated- complete with stainless steel appliances, gorgeous cabinets, and granite counter-tops. It’s airy and allows an amazing flow through the house, so entertaining is easy and open.
The living room is warm, with bright windows that bring in the sunshine. The beautiful dark hardwood floors, custom made mantel and classic built-ins (created by the current seller in the downstairs workshop) make this room one you’ll love to spend time in. Crown moulding, custom window shutters, an electric fireplace insert… Truly, chef’s kiss.
The formal dining room boasts custom wainscotting (again created by the current owner), pot lights, a big window with custom shutters, crown moulding, and original glass doors. The room is perfect for dining, and large enough to host 10!
Two gorgeous, newly updated bathrooms, complete with classic wood doors and hardware. Hard to say what the highlight is! The claw-foot tub in the main bathroom is mesmerizing. And heated floors in both bathrooms? Unforgettable.
The basement work-shop is perfect to take on home projects of any size. Not into DIYs? The space can easily be converted into a family recreational room!

About East York
It’s hard not to be drawn to the quiet, community-oriented, feeling of this eastern area of the city. The rare ‘town-like’ feeling of East York brings together a diverse and tight-knit community – bound by their mutual appreciation of peace and quiet. Money Sense, Canada’s go-to personal finance website, voted East York as #21 of Toronto’s ’25 Best Neighbourhoods to Invest in’ in their feature ‘Best Deals in Real Estate 2016: Toronto’, and it would likely rank even higher today. There’s so much to love here. The proximity to open green space, local tourist attractions like the Ontario Science Centre, pastoral residential streets, and positioning close to local schools, make East York a natural selection when looking for a new home.
For those with a starter-home budget, this is one of the best areas to explore. It’s difficult to find this kind of variety of homes in one neighbourhood in the city – particularly one with this short of a commute to the downtown core. And if you’re looking to escape the city, or need to commute further afield, there is easy access to the DVP. For nature close to home, the Lower Don Recreational trail is 0.5km away. Plus there’s a little of everything nearby: the Beach at Ashbridges Bay, shopping in the Beach, festivals on the Danforth and the colour of Little India. All doable on transit! You are a 15 minute walk to all that the Danforth has to offer – shops, restaurants, cafes. Plus you can be at the TTC’s Donlands subway stop in less than 10 minutes.
