Our tale begins on beautiful Garden Avenue, just west of Sorauren Avenue. Once upon a time, there was an all-brick, semi-detached, two-storey home in the charming Village of Roncesvallles, just waiting to be discovered by its new owners. All the previous people who lived there loved its character, neighbourhood, and community and felt it was the perfect place for a young couple or family to settle into the Roncy lifestyle. 

75A Garden Ave in Toronto - full of charm and character

Looking at the house from the sunny sidewalk, the all-brick exterior and porch are warm and inviting. Much like a good story, this house has a lot of character, evident from the moment you step through the door. The living and dining areas are opened up, featuring a large, bright front window, exposed brick wall, and custom, wide parquet floor unique to this home. The previous sellers got the flooring from a building renovating a retirement home and lovingly cleaned and installed it — all by hand — over a winter.

75A Garden Ave in Toronto - Living Room

A window in the dining room is angled in a way that brings in the light streaming in from the south-facing backyard. And where the light most especially shines is in that kitchen – a morning person’s dream come true with a walk-out to a deck and the backyard. Oh, and did we mention the functional, authentic woodstove in the kitchen, which lends character, warmth, and ambiance to the space?75A Garden Ave Toronto - Kitchen

The storybook charm continues upstairs with a huge skylight that brings in light, a large primary bedroom with a big picture window, and a closet with organizers. The other two bedrooms are a decent size—perfect for working from home or tucking in kids at night. A four-piece bath rounds out the offering on this level.

The basement features an all-brick foundation (unusual for the neighbourhood – usually, they are stone) and is waiting to be imagined as extra living space for a growing family.

75A Garden Ave in Toronto - lush back garden

Stepping into the backyard is like stepping into a fairytale garden. It’s an English-style garden with annuals and perennials thriving in the bright sun under the watchful eye of Bruce the Spruce – we can’t quite determine his height, but he’s certainly taller than the two-storey home. Walk through to the laneway parking, which is big enough for two cars. The laneway comes with everything that makes Toronto laneways special- neighbours hanging out, people walking dogs, and kids playing baseball, hockey, and basketball with each other.75A Garden Ave - front porch

The home was built in 1925 and renovated (opening up the main floor) in the 80’s. It is move-in ready for the Roncy couple or young family who wants their dogs and/or kids to grow up in the ‘hood and live happily ever after at 75A Garden Ave.

5 Things We Love

  1. Arguably (or not) one of the best streets in arguably (or not) one of Toronto’s best ‘hoods. Steps to literally everything — groceries, restaurants, transit, parks, boutiques, doctors, dentists, vets and dry cleaners. There’s no reason to leave.
  2. The (not so secret) Garden – a beautiful English garden is a sunny retreat, under the watchful eye of Bruce the Spruce – a massive mature Spruce tree
  3. Character in spades – from the extra wide parquet wood floors to the (operating) wood stove in the kitchen to the brick exterior and interior exposed brick, this house is filled with storybook charm
  4. Let the sunshine in and face it with a grin – the back of the house faces south, bringing in tons of natural light.
  5. Sorauren Park, the beating heart of the neighbourhood, is only a five-minute walk away (maybe eight minutes tops if you’re holding hands with someone with little legs). With its Farmer’s Market, ball and soccer fields, winter skating rink, dog park, pizza oven, community centre and Town Square, the neighbours gather to watch summer movies (and once-in-a-lifetime events like an eclipse).

About Roncesvalles

Roncesvalles. IYKYK; if you don’t, you should discover it. There are some neighbourhoods in the city where the residents wear it like a badge – not of status but of pure love and appreciation. That’s what it’s like in Roncesvalles—all the convenience and charm of a small town in a 15-minute neighbourhood. Strolling down the street to get dinner ingredients — cheese from Thin Blue Line, a pork chop from The Meat Department or chicken from Rowe Farms, a pint of pistachio gelato from Ed’s Real Scoop — you are likely to run into the people you know from outdoor yoga, the kids’ schools and the dog parks. People from all over the city flock to restaurants like Barque, Pizzeria Defina and, of course, the neighbourhood staple, Cafe Polonez, where the Polish food is so authentic there are always elderly Polish people eating there – the sign of great ethnic cuisine. The schools are great, and the access to transit (TTC and UP) is plentiful (with direct access to the West Toronto Railpath from Sorauren Park in the works). Sorauren Park itself is the nucleus of the ‘hood. Walk past the cafes on the street and amble through its ball diamond and soccer fields. Take the dog to the dog park and the kids to the swings. Watch movies in the Town Square with the neighbourhood in the summer with a slice of pizza from the pizza oven. Get fresh veggies on Monday nights from the Farmer’s Market and, in the winter, skate at the ice rink maintained by a group of local volunteers called ‘The Hosers’. If ever a neighbourhood was a true community, Roncy is it!
