Just the Facts
About the Property
Welcome to a home that keeps on giving. Don’t be fooled by first impressions. This detached home will surprise you at every turn. Once you’re past the cute exterior and through the front door, things start heating up. This home is much bigger than it appears. The open concept floor-plan sets the perfect stage for entertaining and leads you to the real star of the show. The kitchen in this home is outstanding. It’s like you’ve walked onto a set on The Food Network. The literal and figurative centre of this home is obsession-forming. The layout is perfect – with a HUGE 3.5’x8.5’ island for storage and prep space, gas stove, top-of-the-line appliances. Truly magnificent.
If you can tear yourself away from the heart of the home, you’ll find so much more to love. Good sized bedrooms, great flow, dining area, main floor office and the whole first floor is wired for a connected entertainment experience. A major reno with permits in 2013 took care of updates like electrical, hardwood floors, insulation and the structural changes for the open concept main floor, with engineer sign off.
Outside, the party really gets going. Not only is there a fabulous patio that fits all your crew, but there is also green space at the back for a pooch, or to be transformed into a garden. There’s parking for up to 4 cars. Plus, (and this is a really big plus) there’s a shed-like structure that is just waiting to be converted. She-shed? Man-cave? Studio space? Workshop or garage? How cool is that? Or, you could tear it down for even more outdoor space.

About the Neighbourhood and Lifestyle
Close to Corsa Italia, Yorkdale and Little Jamaica, the Caledonia-Fairbanks neighbourhood is a quiet, family-oriented area. Here you’ll find a diverse mix of homes and residents, from starter homes to bungalows, newly renovated, older homes and new builds, with new young families buying their first home, and longtime residents who have lived there for decades.
Getting around is a breeze with easy access to the 401, Allen Expressway and downtown. This home is also very close to Eglington, so when the CrossTown is completed in 2021 the Fairbanks Station at Dufferin/Eglinton will be steps away.
