Enjoy the feeling of living in a natural oasis - the High Park neighbourhood features gently rolling hills, winding streets, and towering oaks: an extension of High Park itself which encompasses hundreds of acres of parkland including a pond, flower gardens, and historic museum as well as an abundance of sports, play and recreational opportunities. 28 Kenneth is walking distance from the Park and just minutes from Lithuania Park for convenient dog-walking & children's playground.
Motorists can easily navigate downtown via Bloor or Dundas Streets, or the centre core via nearby Dupont/Annette. Pearson Airport is also easy to reach. Getting around is very convenient for those who prefer public transit as Dundas West subway station with Go Train stop is only a few blocks away. The area is also well served by bus service on Dupont/Annette and Keele streets.
The historic Junction continues to revitalize with everything from big box stores such as Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws, to professional services, and presents a huge variety of funky cafes and independent shops, on both Dundas West and Bloor Street West. Just blocks away are the trendy shopping districts of Roncesvalles Village, where a diverse mix of avant-garde and old world shops ensures that homeowners have all their shopping and dining needs met, and the fashion-forward walkers' paradise that is Bloor West Village.
Located in a great family-friendly community, the home offers convenient access to both public and separate schools: of special note are the acclaimed Humberside Collegiate and Montessori High Park Schools. The Annette Public Library branch is closest, offering a myriad of programs for neighbourhood residents, as well as the Keele Community Centre which includes a public indoor swimming pool.
This extensively renovated home presents an excellent opportunity for families and work-at-home buyers! Entering 28 Kenneth, there is a light-filled enclosed sunroom with laminate flooring, currently being used as an office - great privacy from the hustle & bustle of family life, or this room could be enjoyed as a cozy, sunny space to watch the world go by. Continuing inside, the spacious living room features high ceilings that give an airy feel, complemented by the crown moldings. A dramatic curved oak staircase leads to the second floor and ends in a landing with a lovely view from a huge picture window.
The impressive open concept dining room and kitchen will be enjoyed by those who love entertaining and all who appreciate flowing space. The dining area has a classic ceiling medallion plus large window, and is open to the spectacular modern kitchen! Enjoy a family meal at the dining table or a quick bite at the breakfast bar. A real benefit of the big kitchen is the plentiful counter prep space and numerous cupboards and pantry area for the chef, and of course the 4 sparkling stainless steel built-in appliances including gas range.
Following through to the unique "mud room area" you'll find the modern day amenity of built-in desk and book shelving. What a lovely open space with plenty of natural light from the skylight, and numerous windows. Busy family life is made easier by the updated four piece bath with whirlpool tub. Storage space is plentiful to hide recycling and hats, boots, and jackets in the rear hall closet. Walk-out to the interlocking patio, fenced yard and parking off lane, often used by the current owners as the main entry/exit due to the convenient mudroom!
The second level houses two bedrooms and a bright broadloomed above grade family room, featuring a generous bay window. The family room was originally the third bedroom, and is spacious enough to accommodate a teenager's extensive media collection! The middle bedroom has a ceiling fan, closet and window, and the master bedroom also includes a ceiling fan as well as two oversized sized closets, perfect for couples. The modern four piece bath on this level is an ensuite to the master bedroom, and features a ceramic floor. Providing for guest space, the third floor loft bedroom is a quaint private oasis affording treetop views.
Relaxation & recreation is available for the whole family to enjoy with the fully professionally finished basement. The oversized bedroom could easily double as a recreation room, plus there is a separate exercise area and laundry room. There are numerous storage closets, with built-in shelving sectioned off, as is the utility room, from the living areas so little-used items will be out of the way. Four above-grade windows provide plenty of natural light, and there is a separate entrance out to the backyard.
There are many valuable, recent mechanical upgrades including plumbing, wiring, thermopane windows throughout, central vacuum, central air conditioning, and improved water main from the street offering the new homeowner convenience and assurance.
