This 3 bedroom, 2 bath semi-detached is the perfect jumping-off point for the home you want to create. With great original features like stained glass on the front door, trim and moulding, you feel warm and welcome as soon as you enter and can see the care that has been taken to keep the good bones of this home in great shape, with lots of little updates along the way. 

The bright living room and formal dining room have great flow and lots of natural light, which reflects beautifully in the gorgeous original handle on the door from the hall to the dining room.

Move further through the main floor, and you’ll find the modern kitchen is clean and inviting. This space is very well laid out, with far more storage than you’d expect in a home this size and vintage. Natural light streams in from the window overlooking the backyard, and there’s a door that leads to the deck and the parking. 

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and the main bath. The primary bedroom definitely steals the show with vaulted ceilings, beams, ceiling fan and heat/AC unit, bay window, newer hardwood flooring and built-in closets. The other two bedrooms are good-sized and bright.  

Downstairs, the finished basement family room has shelving galore. Whether you need room for your library or to display Lego creations (or anything and everything else), this cozy hang-out space has you covered. 

There’s also a private office. This small but mighty space feels surprisingly roomy. The sliding glass door separating it from the action eliminates the closed-in feeling you often find in basement offices. There is also a separate laundry area. 

Outside, the home has good curb appeal with a welcoming porch and beautiful front yard with spring flowers blooming. The cute, East-facing enclosed quiet yard has a cedar deck and a paving stone path to the parking at the rear of the yard. A bubbling fountain and lilac, crabapple and an ash tree all add to the tranquillity. There are 2 sheds and parking for one car – extra spot if you choose to remove the sheds.

This part of the desirable Upper Beach neighbourhood is a secret jewel of the East. With the Beach a short jaunt south and the Danforth subway line a hop, skip, and a jump north, you have easy access to the lake and the rest of the city too. 

This leafy residential area with mature trees and fab schools like Glen Ames Sr PS and Malvern Collegiate is perfect for raising a family, walking dogs and strolling along, getting lost in thought. You are 10 minutes walk to the boutique shops & excellent restaurants and services of Kingston Rd, and just 10 minutes to coffee shops, brewery, the amazing BBQ at Beach Hill Smokehouse and services at Gerrard and Main. There’s a real community feel. Need to shop for the essentials? Loblaws, Freshco, and Metro are all close by. Shoppers World at Vic Park and Danforth has everything you can’t find on Kingston, incl. Staples, Bulk Barn, Lowes, Dollar store and more. Plus, the new YMCA on Kingston Rd. should be opened in ‘21-’22.
