About the Property



If These Walls Could Talk…

About 296 Borden

A rare gift from the past, 296 Borden was built in 1879. Nestled onto a huge lot with a deep, wide private garden this home is rich with character inside and out. The arched wooden front door that greets you is only your first taste of the unique features: inside you’ll find original stained glass detail, a barnboard feature wall in the office/den, a spacious main floor bedroom with a view of the garden, and even parts of the original ceiling detail. Contemporary and old world combine in this one-of-a-kind house.

Upstairs, the master suite consists of the entire top floor, including a bright, airy dressing room complete with 2 piece bath. Original features abound here too, with stained glass, quiet nooks and vintage wood floors – all with beautiful views of the garden and access to a secluded deck overlooking the grounds.

For those looking for green space, this home does not disappoint. The expansive 30 x 140 ft. lot holds mature fruit trees, lawn, and gardens, and includes 3 car parking and a garage. Also of note, the kitchen features a Fisher Paykel stainless steel refrigerator, gas range, plenty of storage and walk-out access to the backyard. Laundry is conveniently located on the main floor. Downstairs, the modern 730 square ft 2 bedroom/separate entrance suite makes an ideal granny flat, nanny apartment or rental unit.

Public open houses September 28th and 29th, 1-4 PM.

About Toronto’s South Annex Neighbourhood

Only minutes from U of T and 2 blocks from the subway, 296 Borden sits in the middle of so much there isn’t room to describe it all. Eat like a king, from Korea Town’s hot pots to top-notch restaurants like Opus and Sassafraz or brunch at Hart House’s Gallery Grill. Shop till you drop at Andrews, Holt Renfrew or Yorkville’s boutiques; a weekly farmer’s market is literally on your doorstep. Get your java on at bespoke roasters like the Green Beanery (they’ll email you when your fresh-roasted beans are ready). Go highbrow at a Trinity St Paul or Koerner Hall concert—or stroll a few steps more to the Royal Ontario Museum. Relax on a patio at the Victory Cafe Pub… starting to get the picture?

Best of all—every one of these choices is only a short walk away.
