Centrally located, this home has convenient access to transportation. Runnymede and Jane stations on the Bloor subway line are a short walk or bus ride. The Spadina line is also accessible as the Annette bus connects to the Dupont station, or the Dundas West station which also has a GO Train stop. Drivers will find the 20 minute drive into the downtown core a convenient method, with both the Gardiner and Lakeshore Blvd. a few minutes away. Pearson Airport is also easy to reach.
Nearby the shops and restaurants on Bloor Street West make this one of the most coveted 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 the quality products. Access to all kinds of services including groceries, dry-cleaning, banking and wellness (massage, herbal therapy, etc.) highlight the convenient allure of the Bloor West Village community.
Situated in a good school district, including the popular Humbercrest Public School with the French Immersion program, parents can hopefully avoid chauffeur duties with separate and public schools all close by! There are two Toronto Public Library branches near and the Annette Recreation Centre has an indoor pool, gym and a baseball diamond. For fitness & nature enthusiasts, there are many options including the Humber Valley, as well as High Park, the city's largest green space.
The main floor of the home is bright with large windows plus the open concept living/dining area is low maintenance with the shining parquet. It is easy to imagine a large dinner party spilling out into both comfortably sized rooms, with guests also enjoying the old fashioned front porch. The kitchen has a tiled backsplash and newer appliances, including the new stainless steel chef's stove. There is an easy care ceramic floor and a multitude of attractive wood cupboards for storage! Best of all is the walk out to the lovely deck via a convenient mudroom (great for recycling, and storing hats and boots in winter). The rear yard is very deep with mature landscaping, perennials, grass and hardy evergreens that will retain their beauty in all seasons.
The second level includes three bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, windows and closets. The master suite is at the front of the house and takes advantage of the tranquil street view with a large well placed window. A renovated four-piece bath on this level is a delightful sanctuary, with a deep old-fashioned claw foot tub, recently re-lined, and tiled walls. Halogen lighting in the hall is an upgrade.
The recently finished basement has good ceiling height and is well lit with pot lights throughout. This level is carpeted and has cheery decor, and a TV/recreation area as well as plenty of storage space and a laundry area with a new washer. As there is a two-piece bath with a shower drain roughed in, this space can be maximized for large families.
The plumbing and wiring have been mostly updated, and there are many valuable recent upgrades offering the new homeowner peace of mind - see below for details. The home is situated on a pretty lot on a street with a mix of families, young professionals and older couples, and is an ideal entry point for buyers looking to make a home their own in this close knit, family friendly community where block parties are the norm!
