About the property

5+ BR, 2 Bath, Gardens, Close To Roncey & West Queen Hot Spots

This detached home is in the Roncesvalles area of Parkdale-High Park, a neighbourhood that balances a hip coolness with a friendly vibe. It's teeming with the city's best parks, public transit, the lakefront boardwalk and beach. There are myriad galleries, cafes, clubs and the city's hottest restaurants along Queen West, Dundas West and Roncesvalles -- so it's no wonder that global media from Vogue to The New York Times focus on this neighborhood as THE place to be.

The house has 6 bedrooms and two full bathrooms with heated tile floors. There's an open-concept kitchen-dining room with professional appliances, slate counters, an island for four and a table that extends from 6 to 10 seats. The living room windows open on to a front porch that acts as another lounging area, to enjoy morning coffee or an evening sip while watching the neighbours come and go. The kitchen's French doors open onto a professionally landscaped rear garden & flagstone patio, where there's loads of sun and shade. Also, there's natural gas BBQ and a table that seats up to 10.

About George Emerson

Our family is the contemporary Toronto story: lots of history coming together in the most diverse city in the world. Mom is from the West Indies, Dad is from the Maritimes. Uniting families from the oldest settlers to the newest Canadians, we've built a home in a neighbourhood, Parkdale-High Park, that's become the byword for progressive, independent, entrepreneurial, and community-minded.

George Emerson purchased this house in 1997

Why George Emerson chose Roncesvalles Village

This is some of the best housing stock in the city of Toronto. Parkdale-High Park was the western lakefront boundary of the old city. In the wave of late 19th and early 20th century industrialization that transformed the Great Lakes, this area became a place to build a new, street rail transit base of family homes. Close to the city, close to the lake beaches, and the heart of the new dynamism that makes Toronto unique.

What makes this house unique

We love this neighbourhood because of the people who live here. There's a great mix of the creative classes and established business types, along with continually renewing waves of new immigrants - such as the Tibetan community in Parkdale. You'll see Buddhist monks strolling along the lakefront while hipsters zip by on their longboards.
