Part of the Carleton Village neighbourhood which was designated as historic by the City of Toronto in 1989, the Corso Italia is known for its Mediterranean flair dominated by the fashion shops, cafes, delis and restaurants of St. Clair Avenue West. There is a very popular annual street Fiesta in July with live bands and family entertainment. The streets are marked by wrought iron lampposts and there is an authentic old-world feel – small local shops like the Centro Trattoria Formaggio immortalized in the movie Moonstruck, and popular restaurants like The Big Ragu nearby on Lansdowne.
1009 St. Clarens is just a couple of minutes walk to St. Clair Avenue and the streetcar, which connects to St. Clair and St. Clair West subway stations on the Yonge/University line. The Lansdowne bus is steps away connecting to the Bloor/Danforth subway in minutes, and Davenport & St. Clair are the main arterial roadways providing motorists with easy access to all parts of the city. There are seven Catholic schools serving children and teens of all ages in this neighbourhood, and Earlscourt Park (one of the few parks with bocce, as well as a pool, tennis courts, ice rink and sports fields) Wadsworth Park and the St. Clair/Silverthorn branch of the Toronto Public Library provide a wide variety of recreational activities to keep them busy.
This freshly painted home & landscaped property is ready for a new family. The house is set on a deep lot, with an easy-care front lawn. A quaint white wrought-iron railing leads to the old-fashioned cedar porch, a nice place to socialize with the friendly, respectful neighbours. The fully fenced extended rear yard has something for everyone: lawn space for kids' play, perennial borders, a separately fenced area suitable for a vegetable or flower garden, and a path to the single detached garage.
The main floor has a traditional plan, with separate living, dining & kitchen areas for formality and privacy. The living room has lovely French doors and polished hardwood floors; the dining room is beautifully decorated and features a classic chandelier, adding elegance and a feeling of special occasions even to ordinary meals. In the spacious eat-in kitchen, there is plenty of space for meal preparation, and numerous wood cabinets provide ample storage space. The front hall and the kitchen feature durable, quality ceramic white floors. There is a convenient mudroom ideal for recycling, and winter hats and coats. It is great for preventing dirt tracking from the yard straight into the kitchen!
The second level houses three bedrooms, well-served by a four-piece bath with groovy retro ceramic tiling and decor. The huge master bedroom is light-filled from a sunny bay window, while the other two good-sized bedrooms have closet space and like the master bedroom, feature gleaming wood floors.
The unfinished basement is open and includes lots of space for laundry and lots of extra storage or convert into a play room for kids. There is a cantina, and mechanicals are easily accessible.
Of special note, the numerous valuable mechanical upgrades offering the new homeowner convenience and assurance, such as the brand new water heater installed this year, the furnace installed in 2003, the 100 amps electricity panel, copper plumbing, central air installed in 2000, and fresh paint throughout the entire house this year. Enjoy this sound home, well loved for many years by the same family and the safe & friendly area and neighbours!
