Part of the Carleton Village neighbourhood which was designated as historic by the City of Toronto in 1989, the Corso Italia is known for its European flair dominated by the fashion shops, cafes, delis and restaurants of St. Clair Avenue West. There is a very popular Annual street Fiesta in July with live bands and family entertainment. The streets are marked by wrought iron lampposts and there is an authentic old-world feel – small local shops offering a delightful array European foods and products, like the Centro Trattoria Formaggio immortalized in the movie Moonstruck. Retail shopping at Keele & St. Clair includes most of the big box national retailers.

957 St. Clarens is a five minute walk to St. Clair Avenue and the streetcar, which connects to St. Clair and St. Clair West subway stations on the Yonge/University line. The Lansdowne bus is steps away connecting to the Bloor/Danforth subway in minutes, and Davenport & St. Clair are the main arterial roadways providing motorists with easy access to all parts of the city. There are seven Catholic schools serving children and teens of all ages in this neighbourhood, and Earlscourt Park, Wadsworth Park and the St. Clair/Silverthorn branch of the Toronto Public Library provide a wide variety of recreational activities to keep them busy.

This turnkey, bright home & property is a real gem! The house is raised up from the road with a nice big front yard, with well tended gardens. A stunning grape arbour lends a majestic feel to the fully fenced rear yard. There is a rare double car cement block garage with new garage door opener for the ultimate in convenience.

The main floor is highlighted by the modern family size kitchen completely open to the dining room, where entertaining and dining is a pleasure – you’ll want to linger in this sun-filled room with its classic crown moldings, or step out onto the patio to enjoy drinks in the warmer months. The kitchen has been recently updated with a new stove fan and dishwasher, and features halogen lighting, ceramic floors and a newer bottom freezer refrigerator. Relax in the spacious living room, which includes a retro wood mantel and sparkling hardwood floors. There is a front hall closet as well.

The second level houses three bedrooms, well-served by a chic four-piece bath with groovy ceramic tiling and decor. The master bedroom is spacious, sunny, and includes extra storage shelving, while the other two good-sized bedrooms feature gleaming wood floors.

The mostly finished basement has a separate side entrance, and could potentially be turned into a nanny suite. There is a 3 piece bathroom, a large laundry area (maybe ideal kitchen conversion?) and a separate bedroom/ rec room space. There is plenty of storage on this level.

Offered at $0.
