The vibrant neighbourhood of Roncesvalles Village is a trendy mix of old world and gentrification. Family-friendly and blessed with excellent transportation routes plus a varied commercial shopping district, this area also boasts plenty of parkland & recreational space. Nearby Sorauren Park is the central meeting spot for many neighbourhood activities including the Farmer's Market, off-leash dog area, little league sports, tennis courts, day camps in summer and many annual events including the famous pumpkin contest. Walk to the nearby kids' playground and excellent schools. Just a few blocks west is the fabulous High Park & Grenadier Pond with 399 acres of parkland & recreational activities providing a whole day's family enjoyment.
At the heart of this neighbourhood is Roncesvalles Avenue, a diverse mix of chic restaurants and gourmet stores rubbing elbows with ethnic delis, coffee shops and family businesses. 47 Pearson is steps away from the popular Mitzi's restaurant, and down the block from the Cherry Bomb coffee shop, the Film Buff, Thin Blue Line and more of Roncesvalles' stunning array of specialty shops plus professional services like banking and dry cleaning to meet all daily needs. St. Joseph's Health Centre is nearby and Queen St. West beckons with antique shopping and delicious trendy dining, like the uber-popular Cowbell and Easy Restaurants. The Polish influence is strong with many delicious delis & grocery options, while all the popular chain stores (Loblaws, Rogers Video, LCBO, Shoppers Drug Mart etc.) are closer to Bloor Street to the north.
Getting around is easy with so much public transit: The Roncesvalles streetcar goes to Dundas West or connects to downtown via the Queen & King streetcars. The bus is quick along Lansdowne. The Queensway, Gardiner and Lakeshore W. are all nearby to get in or out of town by car.
This wonderfully bright and sunny home has fabulous curb appeal, landscaped front and back gardens, and an old fashioned wood front porch perfect for enjoying visiting with neighbours.

An extra bonus as you enter is the spacious foyer with rare coat closet for storing outerwear; together with the adorable main floor powder room, these are ideal amenities for entertaining guests!
The bright main floor features shining solid ash hardwood floors throughout. The separate living room includes a lovely decorative tiled fireplace with a mantel perfect for displaying heirlooms. High 9' ceilings make the most of light from a huge bay window, and additional illumination is provided by the pot lights. French doors create an airy opening to the spacious dining room, where a ceiling medallion and a picture window overlooking the rear garden create an environment for elegant dinners.
The modern spacious chef's kitchen is open to the dining room for ease of entertaining, and was completely renovated including luxurious black granite countertops, custom cabinetry and quality stainless steel appliances and a limestone backsplash reaching new heights of style and practicality. The wide kitchen peninsula and breakfast bar with matching granite surfaces includes additional storage, greatly increasing the meal prep space. Families will especially appreciate the additional dining space in the sunroom just off the kitchen - walk through French doors to enjoy a lovely spot to breakfast basking in the summer morning light, or use this space as a an oversized pantry and mudroom. There is a walk out to the cedar deck, interlocking brick patio and lush south-facing landscaped gardens.
The second floor works well for families or those who work from home, starting with the sunny office/den overlooking the back garden - five large windows overlooking leafy trees flood this cozy carpeted room with light, making it a great place for work or study. The oversized master bedroom retreat was converted from 2 bedrooms into one, and features hardwood floors, French doors, a large window, and lots of closet space. There is plenty of space for a full bedroom set in this spacious room. Two additional bedrooms on this level also boast hardwood floors, windows, and rare walk-in closets perfect for storing and organizing! A gleaming four piece bath with a 6-jet whirlpool tub, extra deep pedestal sink & ceramic tile floor, serves this level, made even brighter by the skylight on the second floor landing.
The finished basement is open concept with high ceilings and plenty of separate storage space in the laundry area (with a toilet that is great for kids training)!
