Toronto house description

Toronto's 'Cabbagetown' is know for having the largest collection of preserved Victorian homes in North America. Built in 1869 this heritage farmhouse, most recently featured in the 'Tour of Homes' is a a perfect example of Toronto's past and present. Located in the heart of downtown, you are actually only blocks from Toronto's famous Eaton centre and so many other of Toronto's most recognized landmarks (CN Tower, Rogers Sports Centre, Hockey Hall of Fame, Royal Ontario Museum, AGO). With a white picket fence surrounding the front yard, the draped porch is an escape all in itself from the hustle and bustle of the big city. The backyard will be your oasis for all seasons frivolities and afternoon naps. A large sectional sofa with oversized umbrella is where you can dry off after you spend an hour relaxing in the 8 seater massage jet hot tub. A secured carport for two is also on the premises. This home has been featured in numerous home decor magazines, television shows and national publications which all celebrate it's character, style and uniqueness.

The front foyer welcomes you to the main living area made up of the den, grand living room, dining room and celebrity designed kitchen.

The 'Canadiana' style den is designed for entertaining with it's 63' flat screen television (cable on demand, apple TV, Wii, DVD) and fireplace, hardwood floors and 12 foot ceilings adorned by original mouldings.

The formal living and dining room boast the most authentic and preserved features of this 1869 treasure with its original hardwood floors, 12 foot ceilings and victorian mouldings. With deep-set sofas and chairs there is no better way to spend a night admiring the eclectic collection of original Canadian art while curled up in front of the fire.

The celebrity designed kitchen is the creme de la creme for entertaining. The heated floors and flat screen T.V. are just the beginning. To be humble I would have to say that this kitchen is an chefs dream with its top of the line Thermador appliances that will cook with as much enthusiasm as you will. An 8 burner stove, industrial size fridge & freezer, warming over, microwave, built in espresso maker, wine fridge, two dishwashers and more counter space than most restaurant will allow you to bake, cook, roll and cater to your hearts content.

The three bedrooms upstairs will allow you to restore your senses after a busy day of enjoying what this city has to offer. One king and two queen beds to comfortably sleep six. The Master bedroom's en suite spa is equipped with a deep soaker tub, walk in shower and double vanities all dressed with white marble.
