A Turnkey Home That Turns HeadsSend This Listing To A Friend
It’s one thing to be turnkey and another to be turnkey and then some! Everything anyone could possibly want in a new home is ready and waiting at 65 Maria. Completely updated and renovated throughout? Functional, efficient design? High-quality finishes? Open concept main floor with mudroom and main floor powder room? Three good-sized second-floor bedrooms? An insane amount storage? Detached garage? Mortgage-helper basement apartment? It’s all in a lovely family neighbourhood in the centre of the Junction, and across from an Ontario heritage site.
65 Maria stands out from the sidewalk, located on the south side of Maria Street.Take in the inviting front porch and easy-on-the-eyes grey painted brick and contrasting red door as you go up the walkway, which sets the style standard for what you will see within. As you walk in you’re greeted by the wide-open concept living space with high ceilings, pot lights and wide-plank oak flooring. The kitchen features a breakfast bar, subway tile, gas stove and storage on top of storage. Custom lights throughout the main floor add a little funk to the function and the powder room means there’s no need to put away the toothbrushes when guests come over. The mudroom at the backdoor makes taking off little boots and coats much easier when you walk in from the back.
Upstairs there are three good-sized bedrooms – bright and light. The primary bedroom features a custom wall of closets with (yes, again) tons of organization options. High-end vinyl flooring is barely discernable from the hardwood on the main floor. A bright bay window lets in lots of natural light and overlooks tranquil Maria Street. A 4-piece main bath rounds out the main floor offering.
And for those who want a little help with the mortgage, there’s a turnkey apartment with a living room, bedroom, kitchen and 3-piece bath.
Outside is a super cute south-facing backyard with plenty of space for kids and a dog, as well as access to the over-sized one-car garage. Yes, a garage. For a car and bikes and strollers and hockey equipment and all those things that need a place.
But it’s not just what’s inside the home that makes it special. The street is full of the 3 C’s – character, charm and community. Young families and friendly neighbours abound. Parks are everywhere. And, across the street, in view from the front windows of the living room and primary bedroom, is the Congregation Knesseth Israel — the oldest surviving synagogue in Toronto, designated an Ontario heritage site in 1984.
5 Things We Love
- Just turn the key. Completely renovated throughout means there is nothing left to do. Just move in and enjoy.
- Quality with a capital ‘Q’. Almost obsessive attention to detail was put into every aspect of this renovation and it shows everywhere you look.
- Quietly in the heart of the action. Maria is a tranquil quiet street close to all the parks yet steps to the shops and restaurants and bustle of the Junction.
- Help with the mortgage. An income-generating basement apartment makes those monthly payments a little bit more palatable
- All of the extras. Did we mention there’s a detached garage? And custom closets? And a mudroom? And a main-floor powder room? And INSANE storage throughout? It’s too hard to pick just 5 best things.
About The Junction
Well, for starters, it’s as Junction as Junction can get. If you’re looking for a neighbourhood that avoids ‘cookie cutter’ and embraces the idiosyncratic, you’ll feel right at home here. This off-the-cuff quality has attracted a variety of residents and created a strong sense of community and identity. Classic brick stone residential homes, revamped industrial-finished lofts, and new builds are all available in the area – making the options as unique as the people who inhabit them.
