Toronto house description

Our lovely historical victorian home offers a 3-bedroom 2 level cosy suite. We are situated on a quiet dead-end tree-lined street. Newly renovated kitchen/living room and beautiful hardwood floors, electric stove, microwave, built in dishwasher, 2nd floor laundry, jacuzzi tub, and all the equipment and amenities needed for in-house dining.
The loft living room has 12 foot Victorian ceiling, a sofa-couch, perfect for cosy evenings curled up watching a movie on Netflix or searching the internet.
The bright lofty 2nd floor area has 2 bedrooms: 1 large queen bedroom, and one small single-bed room, a 4 piece bath, kitchen with laundry.
The elegant 3rd floor is a king bed/living room suite, slanted ceilings, ensuite 3 piece bath (shower), cosy living room area with desk and TV area, electric fire, large glass-fenced roof deck for morning relaxing or evening entertaining.
We live walking distance to downtown, but in a quaint historically-protected neighbourhood with bike trails and great city/country walks at your doorstep. Superb location, in the heart of downtown, but it feels just like a small village, with a free farm (open to the public) down the street, bike trails in the valley, forest trails, waterfront just a few minutes to the south. Walking around our neighbourhood is a lovely holiday in itself!
This is a quiet city get-away, for a peaceful escapes in the city. Suitable for small social gatherings.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Our home is located within a protected Historical Victorian Village (the only one remaining in North America), full of beautiful homes and gardens, walking trails, and biking trails. We are superbly located 15 minutes from the heart of downtown, but the neighbourhood feels like a small quiet village in the country! There is even a farm just 2 minutes walk from our home, with organic produce and fresh eggs! Toronto has over 200,000 restaurants, and all the cuisine of the world is represented here! Street events in summer, and winter festivals are always a treat , and Harbourfront and Lake Ontario are superb places to plan water outings nearby. Why not rent a canoe or go for a harbour cruise, or take a winter walk in the quiet streets or take the ferry over to Toronto Island. We're close to everything, without the cold impersonal hotel environment. Our home offers luxury travel, with the freedom to still do home baking !

                      The Distillery District is another historical area, just down Parliament Street, -20 minutes walk. -Visit an old Distillery with cobbled brick streets and pedestrian shopping area. Great local arts and crafts and holiday markets available there!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: I am a single mother, and my teen son and I love to travel! We love the opportunity to have visitors come to our sweet suite. We enjoy sharing our city while we go travelling or to our cottage. I am an artist and a writer, and you will notice paintings around our home done by me. If you're interested in purchasing any, just contact me during or after your visit.

                      Why the Owner Chose Toronto:
                      Our home is in the most interesting and beautiful neighbourhood in the city. It's in the heart of a historically-protected Victorian village, located just 15 minutes walk from the centre of town! It's quiet and safe, with lovely gardens in the area, excellent walks, a farm, 2 cemeteries, bike/hike trails, places to explore, ..lots to do! The suite is big enough to house the whole family for a great shared holiday get-away! Our little avenue is a dead end, and there are no cars, so it really does feel as if we've jumped back in time about 100 years. (Although inside we have all the modern conveniences, of course) We hope you enjoy visiting our peaceful city escape as much as we love living here.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Enjoy the quiet elegance of our historical street and walks around the lovely Victorian neighbourhood of Cabbagetown. Our home is cosy, with open bright rooms, full kitchen, a roof deck for evening relaxing, jacuzzi jets in the 2nd floor bath,(with dimming chandeliers to add a little romance!). The 3rd floor roof deck is private enough to sunbathe or sip a quiet glass of wine in the evenings, even though you're just 15 minutes walk from the centre of town!
