Desirably located just off Baby Point Road, an exclusive west end neighbourhood situated on a peninsula overlooking the Humber River, this home has excellent access to transportation, parks, schools, and shopping. The street is very friendly and has a good mixture of mature people, young families and professionals without children. Children range from infants to teenagers, with the majority in the three to six year old range.

Jane subway station on the Bloor line is accessible by foot or a short bus ride. The Spadina line is also accessible as the Annette bus connects to the Dupont station, or the Dundas West station. Drivers will find the 15 minute drive into the downtown core a convenient method, with both the Gardiner and Lakeshore Blvd. a few minutes away. Pearson Airport is also easily accessible.

The nearby shops and restaurants of Bloor West Village make this one of the most popular communities in Toronto. Gourmet food, cafes, bakeries, independent clothiers and specialty stores in this area attract people from across the city and are known for their top notch products. Convenient access to all kinds of services including groceries, dry-cleaning, banking and wellness (massage, herbal therapy, etc.) highlight the allure of the Bloor West community. Even closer to home, the shopping on Annette and Jane Streets offer an eclectic mix of coffee shops, grocery and other shops.

Parents can hopefully avoid chauffeur duties with coveted separate and public schools all close by! Two Toronto Public Library branches serve the area and the Annette Recreation Centre has an indoor pool, gym and baseball diamond. For fitness & nature enthusiasts, there are many options including the rambling Humber Valley. The area is surrounded by ravine & parkland making it one of the prettiest settings in Toronto. Of special note is Etienne Brule Park, which has a paved trail along the river ideal for walking, jogging, cycling & blading, while the park itself is also popular for fishing and picnics. The social and recreational centre of this neighbourhood is the Baby Point Club, a private neighbourhood club featuring tennis courts, lawn bowling and social events.

Built approximately 80 years ago, this home offers original features which are a good example of the regional building trends of the time. Classic character is evidenced by the crown moldings, wood trim and many large windows. The numerous French doors, stained glass and etched glass all make brilliant accents. There are two working wood burning fireplaces, and the sparkling hardwood floors throughout were replaced in 1998.

The home is truly a delight! The professionally landscaped front yard ('05) includes an attractive front lawn with shrubbery and an interlocking brick drive (legal front pad parking) welcomes visitors to the cozy brick front porch. The etched glass front door opens onto the rare front foyer, where stained glass window accents are indicative of the elegance of the home. There is a convenient coat closet.

The spacious living room is accessed via French doors, and boasts plenty of natural light. The large wood burning fireplace with the stylish façade having been rebuilt and modernized ('01) provides a captivating focal point for the room. The formal dining room with plate rail provides an excellent setting for dinner parties, and is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen. Renovated in 2005, the state-of-the-art professionally designed kitchen is a showstopper! It features numerous high end custom cupboards, decadent expansive blue quartz countertops, a striking mosaic mini tile backsplash, quality stainless steel built-in appliances, the remarkable heated porcelain floor (which will provide immense comfort to sock feet in winter!), and halogen lights to illuminate the ample space.

With a busy family life in mind, the brilliantly bright breakfast room addition is an extension of the kitchen and truly one-of-a-kind. It too features the porcelain floors, a breakfast bar, a built-in window seat for reading the paper and catching early morning rays, plus area for a large family table. Wine connoisseurs will appreciate the custom space for a wine fridge, while the matching built-in cabinetry provides pantry storage as well. There is a convenient walk out via glass doors to the porch and extra deep backyard, featuring a quiet patio area for relaxing outdoors protected by a large privacy hedge.

Upstairs, the extra large master runs the width of the home and features a brick fireplace. Converted from two separate bedrooms in 1998, this luxurious space includes a lovely dressing area with built in glass cabinets, plus an expansive walk-in closet. The adjacent over-sized four piece renovated bath is a gleaming oasis softly lit with designer pot lights, and accented by the ceramic floor and funky black-and-white ceramic shower tile. There are two additional good sized bedrooms, one with a double closet and one with a magnificent bay window, ensuring space for growing families' work and living needs, or guest room for visitors.

The good sized basement with separate side entrance is high and dry with new stairs in '03. It is partially finished with a laundry area ('03), a two piece bath ('03), and plenty of room to finish for family room plus workroom and storage.

There are valuable mechanical upgrades that offer the new homeowner peace of mind. See complete list, and home inspection report. The whole roof was replaced in 2006, while the garage roof was completely rebuilt & new in 2004. The new furnace was installed in 2004, as was the hot water heater (rental). Move right into a turnkey home on a family-friendly quiet street!
