One of Toronto's most desirable neighbourhoods, Riverdale is a large and diverse community appealing to urban professionals and families. Green space is spread liberally throughout the community, with many parks and parkettes including Withrow Park and Riverdale Park only a short walk from your door. Riverdale's best known shopping district is along the Danforth, east of Broadview. It features a dazzling array of boutiques, cafes, specialty and grocery shopping, and first-class Greek restaurants. Chinatown is within walking distance at Broadview & Gerrard, as is Gerrard Square (at Pape), the renovated shopping mall with over 55 stores including such favourites as the Home Depot, Winners, and Staples. The popular Metropolitan Community Church is also located right on Simpson.

113 Simpson is an ideal location for commuters! The DVP, Lake Shore Boulevard and the Gardiner Expressway are easily accessed. Reliable, frequent public transit is nearby with regular bus or streetcar service on Broadview, Carlaw, as well as Gerrard, Dundas and Queen Streets. Walk to Broadview or Chester subway stations in minutes.

Restored traditional charm and professional landscaping make the exterior of this fully detached brick and stucco home as pretty as a picture. There are new interlocking walkways, fresh sod, a rebuilt, inviting old fashioned front porch and large wood back deck. Inside, the house has been completely gutted and rebuilt anew - it is essentially a new build constructed with the finest materials! High 9' ceilings, crown mouldings and custom millwork and trims create a look of elegance. An entry with decadent marble flooring and a large coat closet leads to the open concept principal rooms. The main floor features dark stained 4" sawn oak hardwood floors. The living room includes a beautiful fireplace and mantel for cozy evenings. With plenty of space to enjoy entertaining, the open dining room is well lit by a huge bay window plus tasteful halogen pot lighting.

The custom kitchen is a chef's delight, with a large centre island that doubles as a breakfast bar. High end cabinetry, granite countertops and top of line KitchenAid stainless steel Energy Star-rated appliances including the fridge with bottom mount freezer, upgraded 'quiet' dishwasher and gas stove with range hood will appeal to the whole family, as there is so much well organized space to move around in while enjoying the high quality amenities! Hardwood floors and halogen lighting add warmth and grace to this large room, while the adjacent luxurious 2 piece bath is convenient when welcoming guests.

The much sought after main floor family room open to the kitchen will be a natural gathering spot for friends and family, and a great play area for kids! With a natural flow of space, and south facing lot, it has a gas fireplace and many windows across the back for plenty of sunlight. French doors lead conveniently to the rear party deck with gas BBQ hookup. The big backyard, ideal for pet & child play, has been professionally landscaped with new sod, garden and interlocking walkways.

New oak stairs and railings lead to the second level which has been designed for optimal family privacy and enjoyment! Gorgeous new oak flooring runs throughout this level, continuing the polished quality found on the main floor. The huge master suite is bright and airy, with a unique vaulted ceiling and three large windows overlooking the rear garden. It has been designed to include two massive deep closets and a 5-piece ensuite spa bathroom! The spacious ensuite includes a frameless tempered glass shower stall plus a deep Airjet Jacuzzi tub so two can enjoy the bath at the same time. The glass mounted sinks, double vanity with granite countertop, wall mounted fixtures and natural stone tile all add to the tasteful decadence.

The extra large front bedroom boasts two double closets, three picture windows and classic crown mouldings. The good sized middle bedroom would be perfect for a child's room or office space for those who work from home; the bright sunny room has its own closet. The main four piece bath continues the modern sleek look. A separate linen closet on this level adds to all the storage space!

The lower level is a continuation of the thoughtful, painstaking quality construction found in the rest of the house and is as bright and high-ceilinged as the main levels of many other homes! Completely finished, it would make a perfect nanny or in-law suite, as there is a separate entrance and glass door walk up to the backyard and a lavish full four piece bath plus high 8' ceilings. A bedroom was created with lovely hardwood flooring, closet and above-grade window, and there is a very spacious living area/ recreation room with 3" engineered oak flooring, halogen pot lights and a large windows.
