About the Property
You always know when you’ve found “the one”.
That home you’ve been dreaming about but haven’t found. The one that you know is out there but you haven’t seen yet? It’s here. And it’s waiting for you.
This extra-wide 2.5-storey semi on coveted Marion street has 5 bedrooms (yes five) with 2 on the third floor. It’s been artfully renovated so all the work you love to have, but hate to live through, is done… but in a way that’s infinitely more personal and unique than any cookie-cutter pot light-and-glass bannister reno. This is home magazine material—with the articles to prove it.
Inside you’ll find designer finishes and a character often dreamed of, but rarely achieved. (You can read all about the process of preserving its character while upgrading here.) The incredible custom kitchen is framed with 1940’s era exposed beams and turn of the century exposed brick. Home chefs and entertainers will appreciate the high-end appliances, soapstone counters and custom-made cabinetry with character that you won’t find at IKEA (or anywhere else). There’s a spacious laundry room cum walk-in closet on the 2nd floor, 2 fancy bathrooms with heated floors (plus a third in the basement), and a walkout to a private backyard with a cherry tree, a sandbox for the kids and plenty of room for family BBQ’s. Plus a 2-car cinderblock garage, just aching for a laneway top-up. All close to everything highly sought Roncesvalles has to offer.
This is The One.
Things we can’t stop obsessing over:
The kitchen. You have to see this kitchen.
The attention to detail in the unsexy work – upgraded 200-amp electrical and upgraded mechanicals, all new windows, waterproofing, you name it.
Gorgeous new oak flooring throughout
The barn door for the master bedroom
The exposed wood features that truly make this home one of a kind.

What’s not to like about Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighbourhood? Streets are lined with beautiful homes, friendly faces, burgeoning local businesses, and some of the city’s best parks. Walking down Roncesvalles Avenue, the smell of homemade bread and rich coffee, coming from nearby Mabel’s Bakery serves as a reminder that “Roncey” is a neighbourhood abundant in life’s simple pleasures.
