Situated within walking distance of the beach and the Boardwalk...The Beach is one of Toronto's most popular neighbourhoods, with a lakeside resort feel and wonderful recreational opportunities. It boasts charming homes accentuated by tree-lined streets that wind their way down to the lake.
Shopping and dining opportunities abound on Queen Street East, as well as on Kingston Road whose shops attract the local clientele. Recreation is virtually limitless, with the Boardwalk and the Martin Goodman Trail providing exercise opportunities, Kew Gardens with its 10 flood lit tennis courts and park activities, Ashbridge's Bay Park for picnics & beach volleyball, the annual jazz festival and holiday festivities...the neighbourhood offers so much entertainment and the beauty of Lake Ontario itself.
There are bus or streetcar routes along Kingston Road, Gerrard, Queen St, and Woodbine, all of which connect to subway stations on both major lines. Motorists are very close to the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard. An added advantage is the proximity to the Danforth -- a 15 minute scenic walk north, to the subway station as well as a profusion of professional services, specialty shops such as Royal Beef, and popular restaurants like Quattro Reggaze.
The tour begins with the delightful curb appeal of the home and tiered perennial gardens. An old fashioned porch overlooking the gardens and street is perfect for whiling away a summer evening. The home is especially bright and breezy with many updated windows.
The virtually open plan living/dining room includes shining hardwood floors and a large decorative fireplace & mantel, with stained glass windows and original moldings adding character. The dining room features a walk-out via high-quality newer French doors to the spectacular cedar party deck and landscaped fenced private rear yard, with its quaint gravel paths and mature tree contributing to the feeling of Beach living.
The cheery family size kitchen has plenty of counter space for preparing meals, and loads of white cupboards that complement the retro checkerboard tile floor. Adjacent enclosed laundry is a modern convenient upgrade.
The second floor features a spacious master bedroom suite with a rare, recently renovated walk-in closet/dressing area including a built-in floor-to-ceiling armoire--the answer to extensive wardrobes! There is a renovated 5-piece semi-ensuite bath with separate roomy shower stall, decorated in creamy neutral ceramics. Two good sized sunny front bedrooms, each with large windows and one featuring exposed hardwood flooring and one broadloom, complete this level.
The fully equipped separate basement suite is currently rented, and features a carpeted bedroom with wall to wall closet, an open living area with built in shelving for storage solutions, a four-piece bath, and a separate kitchen with laundry area. This makes an excellent in-law or nanny suite.
Other benefits of this delightful, freshly painted Beach home includes shared driveway parking where the owners have made an agreement as far as sharing the parking facilities, allowing for a larger enclosed yard, upgraded water pipe, extensively upgraded drainage system in basement, better water shutoff and new industrial grade carpet in basement. Corley is a very quiet street, the neighbours are fabulous with many young families, and excellent schools nearby.
