Located west of Dufferin between Queen and King Streets in a unique enclave of historical homes, 1 Melbourne Place is part of a very special community. While neighbourhood revitalization is well under way, this group of restored Victorians seems untouched by the booming Queen Street West and retains its quaint feel.

Enjoy close proximity to Toronto's waterfront parks and recreational paths; community centres; vibrant and creative multi-culturalism; amazing shopping & dining/nightlife in Queen Street's many cafes, chic bars, boutiques, galleries and restaurants; and easy access to the Roncesvalles Village shopping district which offers outstanding markets, delis and retail shopping.

Convenient location – TTC is literally at your door. The 24-hour Queen streetcar connects to the Yonge/University subway, and the King car connects to the King subway and the heart of Toronto's financial district as well as to Broadview subway on the Bloor/Danforth line. The Dufferin bus also connects to the Bloor/Danforth subway line. There is direct access to both the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard.

Cast-iron gates open on a true Victorian courtyard area lit by gas lamps and featuring interlocking brick streets, making this a stop on the ROM Heritage walk. 1 Melbourne Place is the end unit of townhomes and is light-filled from side windows – double brick between the houses adds to privacy. The entry features a convenient coat closet, and an exposed brick wall creates a classic feel.

The open concept main floor features hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms which open to the kitchen, making it a perfect space for entertaining. A potbellied wood burning stove in the living room adds cozy charm. Walk out to the patio stone private area and surrounding gardens via French doors.

The three bedrooms on the second floor all feature hardwood floors and many closets. The spacious master bedroom has a ceiling medallion indicative of its Victorian history. A modern four piece bath with a marble floor serves this level.

The fully finished basement was newly carpeted this year and has a nice two-piece bath as well as a wet bar and built in cabinetry. There is a separate storage area near the spacious laundry room.

Other benefits of this century home include: a mixture of long term residents in the neighbourhood, a vibrant Homeowners' Association dedicated to the mews' maintenance, gardens & upkeep with $15/monthly dues; extremely friendly with lot of fun traditions.

Offered at $339,000.
