The finishes of this home really are the star of the show. From the walnut hardwood floors that run throughout the first two levels, to the various accent walls and attention to detail, there is never a dull turn.
From the front door, the open concept main floor is well lit with pot lights throughout; there’s even a main floor powder room with heated floor. Cozy up on a chilly winter day by the electric fireplace in the spacious living room. Through the open concept dining area is a huge kitchen; the renovated space includes a butler’s pantry, more counter space than you’ll ever need, a portable island, deep double sink and stainless steel appliances. The dining room also features additional cabinetry space, perfect for a coffee nook or the perfect place to store your barware.
The bamboo and walnut wood staircase, featuring glass partitions is truly a statement piece. At the top you find the primary bedroom, secondary bedroom and a third bedroom–perfect for a den or office space. The snazzy main bath featured marble flooring and a glass walk-in shower.
The third floor attic is easily accessible with a drop-down ladder, providing an additional area for storage.
Downstairs, there is a fully finished basement, recently waterproofed including a sump pump. Say hello to the laundry area of your dreams with a built-in designated folding space. Relax in the soaker tub in the luxuriously upgraded washroom in between loads. You deserve it.
Outdoors, the fully fenced-in backyard greenspace is perfect to kick back and relax (while the dog or children play!).
The Rockcliffe-Smythe neighbourhood is a great place to set down your roots. This family-friendly community is surrounded by tons of greenspace, restaurants and shops, and tons of transit options. The Eglinton Crosstown LRT, set to open in 2022, is also within walking distance!

Rockliffe-Smythe used to be one of the best kept real estate secrets in the city. Now, it increasingly attracts media coverage touting its attributes and affordability. What’s not to love about a neighbourhood with all that green space? Access to the outdoors in Rockliffe-Smythe will have the joggers, cyclists, golfers, walkers, skateboarders, hikers in other ‘hoods green with envy. A commuter’s heaven! When the Eglinton Crosstown LRT opens in 2022, it will connect this community to the city’s transit system.
The area borders on The Stockyards, which means quick and easy access to a combination of restaurants and stores. While Rockliffe-Smythe won’t make the top ten fine dining destination lists, its diversity makes it a mecca for authentic ethnic eats. Head to Martin’s Churrasqueira for Portuguese grill or north to Royal Noodle for some delicious Vietnamese spring rolls.
And for the architectural buff who also likes to read, the Jane/Dundas Library is one of the most modern in the city. Outside is a mix of glass box design and inside is one of the city’s most family-friendly children’s collections.
The area schools are a bit of a mixed bag with some scoring well and some not as well. As the neighbourhood gentrifies, scores will likely improve.
For Toronto Maple Leafs fans, there’s some quirky hockey cred in the neighbourhood. The Smythe in Rockcliffe-Smythe references Leaf great, Conn Smythe, who once owned the storied gravel pit and built many of the post-war homes for soldiers returning from WWII.
