Desirably located in the family-oriented Lawrence Manor neighbourhood, which is home to a significant Jewish Orthodox community, 73 Brucewood is set back on a winding street within walking distance of parks, recreation and public transit. The Lawrence bus connects to the Lawrence subway station on the Yonge/University line, while the Bathurst bus takes passengers to the Bloor/Danforth subway. It's a half hour by car to the heart of downtown, and weekend escapes are easy with the 401 onramp just off Bathurst Street.
Amenities are steps away - Bathurst and Lawrence is one of the premiere Jewish shopping districts in Toronto, with a plethora of kosher food shops, delis, bakeries, gift shops and bookstores as well as the cafes & popular chain stores to be found in most sought-after neighbourhoods. An enviable selection of outlet, discount and big box stores are also found at Lawrence Plaza, a popular shopping destination for locals, and Yorkdale Shopping Centre is easily accessible.
There is convenient access to public and Hebrew schools. Many prominent synagogues dot the area. Parents will appreciate the convenient proximity to Prince Charles Park, a popular island of greenspace with a children's playground only steps from the home, as well as larger Woburn, Flemington and Baycrest Parks. Learning is paramount at the Barbara Frum library on Covington Road, which features a children's storyroom, French and multicultural books, private study rooms and an auditorium. The spacious attached Recreation Centre has multi-purpose rooms that are used by local community groups.
Completely rebuilt to Ontario Builders' Code specifications in the unique, resilient timber frame style rarely seen today, this polished home boasts an extra large lot with mature trees and landscaped shrubbery, including white birch, maple, oak and elm and flowering fruit trees, bordered by a 12-foot cedar privacy hedge, and fully fenced cedar fenced rear yard. The charming brick exterior and the natural slate & interlocking stonework in the front entranceway tie in well with the original 1940's-era homes in this elegant neighbourhood, yet inside boasts all the space, light and modern amenities of a newly built home combined with restored original warmth and character. The area continues to be upgraded and many of the small mid-century homes are slowly being replaced by larger dwellings.
Entering the home, there is a front closet and natural slate stonework in the foyer. The open living room area with a multi-paned bow window overlooking the front yard provides endless options for family life. The layout featuring beautiful new birch hardwood floors throughout the main level, is designed to optimize the flow of light and space. The dining room can be open or enclosed with pocket doors for private dinners - magnificently lit by all new energy efficient bay windows and an elegant light fixture, this room is perfect for dinner parties. A gleaming two piece bath with a natural slate floor, Kohler WC and pedestal sink is an ideal place for guests to freshen up before dinner!
The professionally designed kitchen includes plenty of dark granite counter space, a natural slate backsplash and many natural birch cabinets and pantries sure to please the most demanding chef, while a breakfast bar provides added space for quick meals. The very best stainless steel appliances have been selected to complement this chic space - enjoy the style and ease of operation of the Kitchenaid gas cooktop and vent hood, Frigidaire counter-depth fridge with ice maker, wall oven, Panasonic built in microwave, Bloomberg dishwasher, and extra-deep Franke sink.
The spacious family room is open to the kitchen and features the stunning exposed Douglas fir post and beam construction for a truly impressive, rustic look seen in very few Toronto homes. It features a gas fireplace for cozy family gatherings, and boasts walk outs to two separate patios via French doors which flood the room with natural light.
A 42 inch wide natural birch stairwell under three skylights leads to the professionally finished, partly dug-out lower level - the exact opposite of the stereotypical gloomy basement! Here, the bright recreation room is carpeted in plush broadloom and there is a spacious adjacent bedroom also with broadloom. The spacious three piece bath has a cultured marble vanity, displaying an attention to quality and detail not normally seen in a lower level, and a second bedroom adjacent to the bath is carpeted and offers plenty of space for teenage sleepovers.
Going up the solid carved wood staircase to the second floor, a central hall ties everything together, with a laundry area plus linen closet on the upper landing, which also features a walk out to the upper balcony and cedar deck. Three well-sized bedrooms each have gleaming hardwood floors, windows and closets, including a walk in closet and built in shelving in the front dormer bedroom. These three bedrooms are served by a sumptuous four piece bath which is both lit and ventilated by a powered skylight; a 30-inch marble vanity with undermount sink and a heated floor add to the spa-like feel of this oasis.
Incredibly spacious at 300 square feet, the master bedroom has exposed beams and includes a separate dressing area with deep closets and built-in shelves, perfect for busy professional couples in need of organized space. Perhaps more exciting even than the huge sparkling bedroom is the truly decadent master ensuite - featuring exposed beams setting off the cherry wood double vanity underneath double Kohler sinks. The double-depth soaker tub and frameless separate glass shower stall mean two may use this oversized room at once, a true luxury in the time-constrained mornings. Tasteful tumbled marble floors complement the marble vanity and shower/bath surround.
