This quiet pocket of High Park is family-friendly. The streets are lined with towering oaks, reflecting its proximity to one of Toronto's largest and most popular parks. High Park itself spans 399 acres of public parkland, including an outdoor theatre, picnic grounds, flower gardens and an historic museum, providing recreation and relaxation for the whole family. The families with children on Medland enjoy the library at the top of the street and activities for all ages at the nearby Keele Community Centre and Park Lithuania with playground, tobogganing hill and baseball diamond only steps away. The highly regarded schools in the area include Humberside Collegiate.
This in-demand location is just an 8 minute walk to Keele subway station and a five minute drive to Lake Shore Boulevard and the Gardiner, which means easy access to downtown or to the airport. It's a short walk to the nearby flourishing Junction area, with its unique shops and restaurants, and to Bloor West Village, a popular shopping district known for its European cafes and specialty food shops.
62 Medland Crescent offers exceptional curb appeal. Just last year the front garden was landscaped by professional designers to include a wide flagstone path and decorative boulders, and is packed with low-maintenance perennials and evergreens. This home is unique in that the traditional front porch is separate from the neighbours, making it feel more like a detached. Adults and children alike will delight in the fully fenced rear yard. With multi-level cedar decking, and features like built in overhead and ground lighting, full afternoon sun and a luxurious child safe 6-seater hot tub, it's the ultimate space for entertaining.
The extraordinary character and charm are evident from the moment you enter the home. There's a classic restored wood built-in seating nook in the foyer - perfect for sitting in to remove boots and shoes or for prepping the kids to go outdoors! The staircase commands its own presence, with polished wood stairs, restored handrails and 2 landings.
The well-decorated stylish living room is highlighted by the brand new modern Valor gas fireplace and mantel. It features crown mouldings, a ceiling medallion, high baseboards and sparkling richly coloured hardwood floors. The formal dining room features a remarkable beamed ceiling, a charming old fashioned plate rail and hardwood floors continued through from the living room. The pretty built-in seating under the arched triple window is also practical, with roomy storage compartments underneath to store table linens, children's games and the like!
The bright kitchen walks out to the fabulous yard - great when hosting parties. The kitchen features a tile floor and halogen lighting. Experienced cooks and novices alike will appreciate the ease of meal prep and cleanup with the high quality stainless steel appliances purchased in the last year. These include the LG stove, Whirlpool fridge/freezer, over the range LG microwave and a Whirlpool dishwasher. Contributing to the kitchen's functionality is the well laid-out and modernized counter space, a double stainless sink and plenty of cupboards.
The sunny second level, which houses the 4 bedrooms, is currently set up as 3 bedrooms plus an office. The master bedroom features hardwood floors and a ceiling medallion, in addition to a good-sized closet with built-in organizers for convenience. The children's bedrooms have durable, easy-care laminate flooring, while the office is a marvel of old world charm, with crown mouldings, a plate rail, and the brick fireplace with built in shelving above the mantel. This delightfully bright room includes a balcony for fresh air - perfect for taking breaks from work! A four-piece bath with ceramic floor and tile surround completes this level.
The professionally finished and waterproofed lower level features its own separate side entrance, adding to the potential for a nanny or in-law suite. The sunny orange decor, shining laminate flooring, plenty of halogen lighting and natural light from two above-grade windows make the rec room a very pleasant space to spend time. There is plenty of closet space with built-in shelving, a large separate storage room and a spacious renovated bathroom with glass enclosed shower stall. Stacked, but spacious, laundry facilities are tucked away for convenience.
Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with moving into a fully updated home. Costly structural and mechanical improvements have been undertaken recently including the high efficiency gas furnace, thermopane windows, new roof, soffits & eavestroughs, rewiring, gas fireplace, central air, landscaping, decadent hot tub (the list goes on...) have been done for you!
A wonderful bonus is the neighbourhood community - there are many families with young children along Medland Crescent who enjoy spending time together doing everything from throwing lane parties, sharing babysitters, to holding Easter egg hunts for the kids!
