Groovy meets grit in a 3-bedroom detached home in Weston Pelham ParkSend This Listing To A Friend
Nestled in the heart of one of Toronto’s coolest emerging neighbourhoods is this 3-bed, 2-storey, detached (yes, you read that right – DETACHED) home that’s got a cool factor to the power of ten.
Step through the front door and into a very wide foyer. One of the first things you’ll notice is how spacious it feels, thanks to the width of the home, the soaring ceilings (8.5’) and the big windows that let in lots of light. Hardwood floor flows through the foyer, living room and dining room, large enough for dinner parties and family gatherings of all sizes. The eat-in kitchen has a walk-out to a backyard that is the envy of the neighbourhood. What makes it so great? For starters, it’s 25-feet wide and incredibly private. In the summer, the back wall is covered in vine making the yard lush and green. Want to have some friends over for a backyard barbecue and guitar singalong? Go right ahead, they’ll feel like they are miles away from the city, while still being in its heart.
The perfect balance for work and life – this detached home delivers on good size and functionality with three bedroom spaces for sleeping or working. Light oak engineered hardwood flooring leads you upstairs and throughout the second floor. There are two hall closets and an extra large (renovated) four-piece main bath with lots of storage. The windows let in a lot of light, and the bedrooms are much brighter and larger than those in nearby semi-detached homes. The (mostly) finished basement has decent ceiling height (6’4”) and additional areas carved out for entertainment and a home office. There are also a lot of great storage units and systems included in the purchase price. Overall the home has enormous potential already realized, and still to be realized. And because it’s detached, and an older home with thick walls, it’s as quiet as it is private.
The cool factor continues with the home’s vibrant location. Practically at the doorstep is the West Toronto Railpath with easy access to all the Junction and other surrounding ‘hoods have to offer, not to mention the UP Express and GO to get to the airport or out of town quickly and easily. And it’s only a matter of time before you can head downtown via the Railpath too. Not to mention Bike Share and Zip Car locations are all just a short walk away.

About Weston Pelham Park
The best part about a neighbourhood in transition? All the cool kids move there first, which is exactly what is happening in Weston Pelham Park right now. The craft breweries, independent art galleries and super cool indie coffee shops that have all but deserted Roncy and Bloor West have decamped to Weston Pelham Park and surrounding area. The newest, Caffe Brasiliano, is literally just around the corner. The shops and restaurants of the Junction are super close by as are all of the eateries and other fun places along Dupont where the creative classes gather and chatter. Hanging out in any of these places — from Alison Milne Gallery and Carlton Park’s Tuck Shop to Wallace Espresso, Farmhouse Tavern, Mattachioni and the People’s Pint Brewery — you’re elbow to elbow with those in the tech industry, local artists, tattoo shop owners, craft brewers and art directors, photographers and even the client service folks from Toronto’s advertising, marketing, public relations and design firms. The kind of people for whom the quirk of the ‘hood — with its marble and granite supply stores juxtaposed with wholesale fishmongers and indie coffee shops — is part of its charm.
