The ideal spot midway between Mount Pleasant and Bayview provides easy access to the Davisville subway at Yonge Street. Davisville Village is a community minded, safe neighbourhood conveniently located next door to Leaside, and has always been popular with young couples and families. It is known for its excellent recreational - children delight in the playground, pool and baseball diamond at Davisville Park, and all ages enjoy the six tennis courts. The Belt line and the lush Mount Pleasant cemetery grounds are a unique opportunity for leisurely strolls, dog walks, runs and biking which accesses beautiful areas of central Toronto.

The Davisville area attracts people from all over the city who enjoy outstanding shopping and restaurants on nearby Bayview and antique and collectible shopping along Mount Pleasant Road. Nearby is the big Dominion and professional services at Eglinton and the wide variety of home decor, children's clothing and specialty stores along the Yonge corridor. There are many fine schools in the area including the acclaimed Maurice Cody Public School. Motorists have quick access right downtown via Mt Pleasant/Jarvis and highways and expressways are only a short drive away.

Curb appeal abounds at 518 Millwood, which is as wide as most detached houses and sits on an amazingly deep landscaped lot with a fully fenced rear yard, perfect for child and pet play or outdoor parties. The interlocking stone parking pad is a quality, attractive feature, and the front yard has been landscaped with perennials, grass and a lush mature maple that adds cooling shade in the summer. The old fashioned wood front porch is a relaxing shaded oasis. Well maintained and renovated and retaining its original charm, the house is in excellent condition so you can move right in!

The foyer features a tile entrance, and the hardwood floors that flow through the majority of the home. There is a convenient front hall coat closet with mirrored doors to hide the hats and mitts and boots! The living and dining rooms are open to each other and feature impressive windows to bathe the rooms in natural light. The cheery updated kitchen is accessed off the dining room via a pass-through and a doorway, as well as through the entryway - great for multiple cooks and their helpers coming in and out to serve guests! The kitchen features ceramic floors, counters and a high tile backsplash, plenty of maple cupboards, and walks out to the wood deck, patio and luxuriant lawn whose high privacy fence is a bonus for safe play and outdoor enjoyment. The cedar shed at the rear is great for storing bikes & sporting goods!

An impressively wide wood staircase leads to the second floor and bedrooms. The master is well sized, with three large thermo pane windows and a double coat closet with pocket doors. The adjacent second bedroom would be ideal for children or for use as a sunny office. The back bedroom is spacious, with a double closet featuring sliding doors. All carpeting has been removed to reveal the shining, durable hardwood floors that run throughout this level. The original character is preserved in the baseboards and doors, and the old fashioned claw foot tub. A separate linen closet serves this level, conveniently located across from the updated four piece bath. A rare large bathroom window adds natural light and ventilation.

The finished basement has great possibilities as a family recreation area plus spacious office! It has been professionally finished with broadloom and pot lights, and features a gorgeous exposed brick wall plus tons of built-in storage for all the kids' toys. The separate finished laundry/storage area has lots of room for built-in shelving and storage.
