One of Toronto's most vibrant east end neighbourhoods, Danforth Village is a large and diverse community appealing to urban professionals and families looking for pretty streets and homes close to all the amenities. Mature trees and green space is spread liberally throughout the community, with many parks and parkettes including the vibrant Monarch Park, with its playground, tobogganing, skating and swimming pool all literally steps from your door. The home is walking distance to numerous schools, both elementary and secondary, both public and Catholic. There is a nearby public library at Coxwell and Danforth.
83 Monarch Park Avenue is conveniently located just one block south from Danforth Avenue with its well known shopping district featuring an array of retail stores, quality big box grocers like the Valumart at Woodbine, the fabulous butcher Royal Beef, cafes, professional and health services, and family-owned Mediterranean, Asian & other exotic restaurants, or venture down to Little India for more! The East Toronto Athletic Field provides a number of sports fields for the ever-popular soccer, and close by community programs for children abound, such as hockey at the Ted Reeve Arena. Easy access to the Beaches and Leslieville is another plus.
Commuters enjoy an ideal location! The DVP, Lake Shore Boulevard and the Gardiner Expressway are readily available. Reliable, frequent public transit is nearby: walk to Coxwell or Greenwood subway or use the regular bus or streetcar service on Coxwell and Greenwood Avenues! The frequent-service streetcar on Gerrard is another option for the downtown commuter.
The versatile floor plan of this two-storey professionally renovated family home is designed for family life. As you approach the house, curb appeal is evident in the gabled roof and old fashioned wood porch refurbished last year. The entry hall with easy care ceramic flooring leads to the living room, where polished hardwood floors and a decorative brick fireplace spell home! A big bay window overlooks the porch and adds plenty of light. The living room flows into the dining room, for comfortable entertaining - here another large bay window adds a focal point to the spacious room, which easily accommodates extended family meals, or can be converted into a fabulous family room, as it is open to the kitchen.
The modern kitchen was renovated in 2004 and features a quality cork floor, pot lights and upgraded appliances! A rare main floor three piece bath with glass enclosed shower stall adjacent to the kitchen is ideal for overnight guests, or families getting young children ready for dinner. Those who love to entertain or BBQ outdoors will appreciate the two walk outs to the oversized wood deck and fenced yard. An added bonus is the spacious main floor pantry off the kitchen, which has tons of room for storing dry goods and bulk supplies, and the same easy care cork flooring found in the kitchen.
The second floor features three good-size bedrooms, including the generous master with its pot lights, closed brick fireplace and big bay window. Hardwood floors continue throughout this level in the middle and back bedrooms, each of which features a double closet and window. French doors from the back bedroom lead to the enclosed heated office, where two full walls of windows illuminate the room for a sun-soaked feel especially during the winter months when daylight is at a premium. A gleaming renovated four-piece bath featuring an old fashioned clawfoot tub (refinished this year), ceramic flooring and a large window for natural light, serves the second floor. The adjacent linen closet is well situated to the bathroom.
The professionally finished basement was well thought out as the laundry room and storage can be shared by all levels of the house! The separate suite or apartment includes an exterior entrance and makes for perfect nanny or in-law accomodations. It is well laid out with three above grade windows, an open concept living area featuring broadloom and pot lights, a good sized bedroom, a four piece bath with ceramic floors, and a renovated kitchen with stand up freezer.
Other benefits of this terrific family home include the recently added garden shed, friendly neighbours (a street with many young families with children, many babies & toddlers), neighbourhood street parties and garage sales, and close proximity to a leash-free park.
