Located in an area of Bloor West Village that's full of mature trees, this classic side centre-hall residence, built in the early 1920s, retains many of its original characteristics. Among them are the living room's hardwood floor, brick wood-burning fireplace and bay window. Located at the front of the house, the room opens to a balcony.
On the other side of the main foyer, the eat-in kitchen leads to a patio in back and into the adjacent dining room, where there are stained-glass windows and French doors leading to a rare den.
The second floor includes the only bathroom and the three bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have private balconies, including the master, which spans the width of the house directly above the living room.
A recreation room in the basement rounds out the home.
The wiring and plumbing were updated, and the furnace, eavestrough and asphalt roof were replaced.
There is parking, but schools, parks with sports facilities and Bloor shops are a short walk away. The subway and GO Transit are nearby, as is access to the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard.
