Property description

Enter the calming, open-concept oasis of 12 Stanley Avenue and find yourself surrounded by bright, natural light from the oversized south-facing windows and splashes of color from the mix of mid-century and contemporary furnishings and eclectic art. Gleaming white oak floors flow throughout the space and the combination living-dining room features an Italian marble-top table, perfect for formal dinners or spreading out the newspaper for a casual weekend brunch.

The fully stocked galley kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances is the central hub of the main floor and leads to a cozy nook for relaxing in front of the TV with full cable access. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open to an enclosed deck bathed in afternoon sun.

Upstairs the luxurious surroundings continue, with the exquisite bathroom retreat, complete with heated floors and deep, soaker tub lit from above by an antique crystal candelabra chandelier for the ultimate bubble bath escape. The glass-surround shower stall and its rain-head fixture ensure an invigorating start to the day or a relaxing unwinding at day’s end.

The bathroom leads to an upper deck, shaded on one side by mature trees and offering a western view of spectacular sunsets on the other. Both bedrooms feature inviting, comfortable beds and luxurious linens: a king-sized in the master with windows overlooking Stanley Park, and a queen in the tranquil second bedroom.

An alcove office provides a zen-like private workspace and the basement surprises with its efficient washer-dryer combo and another full-size bathroom with its own soaker tub.

Other added touches you’ll appreciate at 12 Stanley include:

* Thick combed-cotton robes and slippers for your use during your stay.

* The use of an iPhone and charger for local Toronto-area calls. No need to worry about roaming fees!

* Breakfast on us: a gift card for Nadège, one of the area’s best bakeries. (Can also be used for a midday sandwich or for their mouth-watering macarons.)

* Green, 100% biodegradable bath products from a local salon.

Travelling with small children? Leave all the cumbersome gear behind -- we've got you covered!

Our family-friendly house comes complete with:

*Child-proof safety gate for the stairs
*Regulation highchair and booster seat
*Pack-n-play playpen/crib combination
*Games and puzzles inside and a neighbourhood park across the street, complete with playground, ping pong table, outdoor pool and splash pad!

We love kids -- so much so they stay for free (12 and under).

Welcome home.

About the owner: Your hosts John and Nelson have combined their expertise in real estate and set design and their shared love of travel, architecture and “the finer things in life,” to bring you a truly luxurious home-away-from-home.
