Welcome to 42 Kenneth Avenue in West Bend - a kid-friendly, family-oriented street and neighbourhood in the west end of Toronto. An incredible sense of community abounds here!

Each morning, most little legs parade five minutes to the popular Indian Road Crescent Jr. public school.

Great times playing on the front yards of many of the houses on the street (the kids treat all the front yards like their own). The street is quiet as it is not a main neighbourhood street. Enjoy the lasting memories of children playing soccer, riding bikes, and scooters in the quiet back lane, given there is only one way in and out. The front porch is a lovely place to sit with the Rose of Sharon in bloom in summer and once the kids are in bed.

You will fall in love with the character of the neighbourhood and the charm of the original features of 42 Kenneth - the owners preserved what they could and recreated the rest when rebuilding and renovating. Our Sellers built the house for family life with kids and thinking of an elderly family member who might live with them in the future - hence the roughed-in 4-piece ensuite to the 2nd-floor back bedroom.

Walking to all destinations in the neighbourhood is the biggest asset!

Residents of West Bend are within blocks of The Junction, High Park, Roncesvalles, and Junction Triangle to experience several cool coffee shops, grocery stores, parks and libraries. Minutes away, a walking bridge to the East takes you into the Wallace-Emerson neighbourhood with more hip stores, bars and restos. Having the GO Train, UP Express to Union Station or YYZ, the Dundas West and Keele Subway stations - all within a 10-minute walk is a big plus!

This is a rare opportunity to own such a special property. It is ideal for a modern family - entertaining, growing kids & working from home.

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, finished lower level with walk out. Elegant & endless 3450 square feet home (incl. lower level) in this wide semi. Open concept to keep an eye on the little ones.

Enjoy the exceptional back to bricks complete high end custom rebuild/reno 2016/2017 including new walls, floors, joists & 2 full HVAC systems and 2 tankless on demand hot water heaters. Manifold plumbing means you never have to worry about water pressure.

Roof was removed & fabulous 3rd storey was reconstructed with 3 full bedrooms & 4 piece family bath. Feels like most 2nd floors!
