Welcome to our home in Toronto's beautiful Beaches neighbourhood. We live in a very special house, a red brick Victorian farmhouse built in 1896 for William Brown, an executive with the Grand Trunk Railway. The house is designated Toronto Heritage and has been very well preserved. While its outside appearance is very similar to what it was like 125 years ago (including original stained glass windows), the inside has been completely renovated to very high standards. Marble ensuite bathroom with glass shower stall and clawfoot tub, huge kitchen with granite counters, very large island, Viking gas range, dishwasher and built-in wine fridge. 3 fireplaces (the 2 gas fireplaces are functional) and central air conditioning, 2 1/2 bathrooms. Master Bedroom has a King size bed and cathedral ceiling, 2 kids bedrooms (w/ double beds) and a 4th bedroom with Queen bed. Basement recreation room with sectional sofa and TV/DVD + fireplace. Wifi Internet of course. And a lovely garden with lots of different areas to sit, including an in-ground spa, propane fire table and high end barbecue. There's also a laundry room with high efficiency washer and dryer in the basement.

Very lovely & clean home
Home was great! Cleanliness & comfort were very important to my family & I. This home exceeded our expectations!
We are very fortunate to be living in one of Toronto's nicest and most family-friendly neighbourhoods called The Beaches (or The Beach according to the city of Toronto). Within walking distance you will find shops, restaurants, parks, a boardwalk along Lake Ontario (connected to a bicycle trail that covers all of Toronto's waterfront) and, of course, beaches (although they have multiple names, it is basically one long sandy beach).
We are also within a 10 minute walk to a commuter train station (12 minutes to downtown, no stops) and within a 15 minute walk to the subway (about 40 minutes to downtown). And within about 4 minutes you can walk to a bus stop and 2 different streetcar (tram) lines. No need for a car unless you plan to leave Toronto!
