Located in the historic Christie Pits neighbourhood, this home was built almost 100 years ago and boasts exceptional character and charm. The neighbourhood was named after the Christie Sand Pits which were a large source of sand, gravel and clay deposits. Willowvale Park, steps from this home, is better known simply as the Christie Pits and offers a multitude of recreation activities including baseball, basketball, swimming, skating, bocce, and winter tobogganing. This neighbourhood has a diverse population including long-time home owners, young couples & families.
The area comes alive every June with the Bloorcourt Village Sidewalk Sale and Music Festival. In addition to the exceptional variety of specialty shops and restaurants in Bloorcourt Village shopping district, residents are walking distance to Seaton Village and the Annex.
Access to transportation is excellent as the Christie station on Bloor/Danforth subway line is a short walk, plus there is a Christie bus connecting the St. Clair West subway line. Toronto's city centre is a 15 minute drive along Bloor Street or you can head south and pick up the Gardiner Expressway and connect with other major highways.
The interior of the home has been beautifully updated to maximize comfort. The spacious eat-in kitchen includes a rare back "servants" staircase leading to the second floor and has plenty of counter and cupboard space.

The most stunning addition is the new 6pc spa bathroom on the second floor which features a heated floor, whirlpool tub and marble counters, shower & tub surround. Technologically superior, the bathroom also boasts pre-wiring for cable and stereo and has ceiling speakers, pot lights and dual shower heads. The extra large master, also on this floor, has a restored wood burning fireplace and a walk-out to the upper deck where large maple trees provide natural privacy.
