    Cabbagetown is one of Toronto's most popular urban neighbourhoods. Residents come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and it is very inclusive, as they all share a strong sense of community spirit and pride in their neighbourhood. It is a true walking location - easy to reach King/Bay business district, Dundas Square, and Riverdale Farm. Nearby plenty of TTC routes and highways in and out of town. With the school across the street it attracts families, and it is a safety zone so calmer traffic, and the nice school yard and recess is at the opposite end of the school, so noise is not a factor.

      Pretty As a Portrait Inside & Out

      • Alluring brick exterior facade right out of a storybook with gothic inspired windows.
      • Enter into the vestibule where there is space for your coats and shoes. The double door entry keeps it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
      • Elegant open concept main floor principal rooms with impressive ceiling height and pristine hardwood floors throughout.
      • Antique burning fireplace & mantle, pretty crown mouldings/ceiling medallion and halogen pot lights which accent your artwork beautifully.
      • Sleek kitchen renovation! High end stainless steel appliances includes a gas cooktop, double wall oven and a farmhouse style sink. Granite countertops, large centre island, stylish red glass backsplash.
      • Large mud/laundry room off the back with a closet and sliding glass doors that lead out to the patio for ease of carrying all your groceries in from the car. No more mess being dragged through the rest of the house if the kids get dirty in the yard you can chuck their clothes right in the wash
      • Must have main floor powder room with granite counters, tiled floor and glass tiled accents. Well located door for discretion.

      • Upstairs you'll find a remarkable 2nd floor plan with a long hallway that nicely separates the 3 bedrooms for optimal privacy.

      • Grand front facing bedroom with over 9' ceilings, a large double closet, hardwood floors and a sun-filled sitting area to enjoy a good book. A great master bedroom alternative.

      • Retreat to the renovated and expansive 5 piece bath. Rainhead shower, marble surround, separate soaker tub and double sinks.

      • The 2nd bedroom has a large closet and hardwood floors.

      • Dressing room/walk-in closet with custom built-ins for all you shopaholics.

      • Large 3rd bedroom faces the backyard, includes berber style broadloom and a closet.

      • New stairs treads going to the 2nd and 3rd floors. There is a fabulous skylight in stairwell going up to third floor that floods the area with natural light. Important to note that stairs are easy to climb to 3rd!

      • Private 3rd floor 450 square foot master suite! Over 9' ceilings, 3 piece ensuite, 2 large closets, hardwood floors and slim line fireplace keeps it cosy at night. Would make a great family room or home office as well. An idea is to perhaps add a deck off the master where the windows currently are.

      • Basement is notoriously dry and is the full lower level - not all homes built in this era have a such a good quality basement.

      • Abundance of space and an empty canvas to finish as you desire. Large open area could be an ideal family recreation room. Huge storage closet for all your seasonal decorations.
