The house is located in the heart of the historic Riverdale community. Known originally as Riverside, this neighbourhood is popular with successful, young professionals and new families alike. Most of the homes were built between 1880 and 1924 and streets are lined with some of the tallest maple trees in Toronto.

Food lovers, bargain hunters and big spenders will love the multitude of dining and shopping options along the Danforth. A wide variety of specialty stores are an added bonus. People flock from across the city to shop at The Big Carrot Natural Food Market and Revue Video has an outstanding collection for film buffs. For those who prefer big box to small shop, there is both a Home Depot & Winners on Gerrard.

Toronto's city centre is only 10 minutes away, easily accessible using Danforth/Bloor, Gerrard, or the Gardiner. Adventurers and cottagers have easy access to the 401 and connecting highways using the DVP. TTC access is excellent as Chester subway station is a short walk from the front door.

Residents are happily spoiled with recreation opportunities, having nearby access to two major city parks. Withrow Park is steps away, and Riverdale Park East is just off Broadview. Both offer tennis courts, a wading pool, a hockey rink, a baseball diamond, and plenty of greenspace. In addition to recreation opportunities, home buyers with children (or those planning to expand their family) will be pleased with the nearby schools and libraries. Feel at home immediately at 29 Grandview as there are lovely neighbours on both sides. This special street boasts many families and has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere – what a great place to enjoy small town charm in the big City.

The exterior and landscaped areas of the home have been maintained and updated. There is a newer front interlock stone walkway. The front yard features tall trees – perfect for providing shade to relax on the front porch. The raised deck in the rear is a fun place to maximize the BBQ season and entertain throughout the summer. The large parking space is located beyond the fence and rear garden & yard, it is accessed via lane.

The interior is lovely – with high ceilings in the open concept living and dining rooms with hardwood floors. The south-facing lot brings in plenty of natural light. The large family size renovated kitchen features granite counters, numerous white cabinets, a custom built corner bench, a gas stove and a walk-out to the back deck.

All three bedrooms feature broadloom, and big windows, and much original trim and features. The second floor that had been three bedrooms was converted into two bedrooms to incorporate a luxurious extra large master bedroom with walk-in closet, plus an expanded bathroom with claw foot tub. The third floor bedroom is terrific, with an open feeling and could be ideal as an office or guest room. The hallway has hardwood floors. There is a full basement with plenty of room for storage and laundry.

Feel at home immediately in this stunning home and wonderful Riverdale neighbourhood. The vendors hope you love it as much as they have for many years.

Offered at $449,000.
