The thriving, well-established neighbourhood of Roncesvalles Village is a mix of old world and gentrification. Family-friendly with many children in the area, and blessed with excellent transportation routes plus a vibrant shopping district, this area also boasts parkland & recreational opportunities within walking distance. At the heart of this neighbourhood is Roncesvalles Avenue, a diverse mix of chic restaurants, art galleries and gourmet stores rubbing elbows with ethnic delicatessens and family businesses. There are a couple of great shops on Sorauren including the popular brunch/lunch place Mitzis, and a newer gourmet grocer.
There are numerous dogs playing offleash in Sorauren Park, the central meeting spot for many activities in this vibrant neighbourhood. There is little league in spring and fall, plus the day camps in summer and many annual events including the famous pumpkin contest. There are tennis courts, a soccer field, and a baseball diamond in this park located just down the street. There is also a kids playground across the street, while High Park & Grenadier Pond with 399 acres of parkland & recreational activities offers endless options for outdoor activity.
Travelling is easy with so much nearby public transit: The Dundas, King and Queen streetcars are only a five minute walk away and connect to subway stations on the Yonge line or Bloor via Roncesvalles. The detached garage provides parking for one car and motorists will find direct access to the Gardiner, the Queensway and Lake Shore Boulevard a few minutes to the south.
This solid brick home has great curb appeal, with an old fashioned front porch for watching the world go by, and a natural screen of hedges separating the lawn from the street. On the first level is the generous open concept living area for the main floor/basement unit, where hardwood floors, coved ceilings and a lovely brick fireplace add a classic feel. A large closet off the living room provides extra storage space for outerwear. There is one spacious bedroom on this floor with a convenient wall to wall closet.
The oversized eat-in kitchen is open to the dining room, which is flooded with light from a newer skylight and has plenty of counter space for preparing meals. There is an enclosed sunroom for added enjoyment of nice weather, which opens out to the inground pool a unique and well enjoyed feature during summer parties, as it includes a covered BBQ area, pretty perennial landscaping and the sauna and hot tub found in the detached garage.
The back of the house has a solid brick addition which creates space in the kitchen and dining area, as well as a convenient mudroom area leading into the basement.
The finished lower level includes the 2nd good sized carpeted bedroom with closet. There is a four-piece bath and a separate shower stall. There are several above ground windows as well as extra storage space in the furnace area. A fireplace, a rare opportunity in basements, and a wet bar nicely finish this floor which has potential as a nanny or inlaw suite.
The upper level contains the second suite, with hardwood floors throughout. The area is versatile as the walls are mostly still intact for a traditional 4 bedroom home. Currently the front room is the master suite with huge turret style bay window and closet, and there is a bright adjacent living room plus an eat-in kitchen with plenty of cupboard space, and a second bedroom at the back with a closet. An updated four piece bath with a comfortable cork floor serves this level.
