If you’re looking for a neighbourhood that's blooming like the buds of Spring, then look no further! Revered as one of the hottest transitioning neighbourhoods, this in-demand east-side location is a destination of choice for the high-styled, but down-to-earth buyer. For those seeking a calibre home at a fair price, this stellar offering will do more than draw you in - it will give you reason to stay!
Situated just north of The Danforth just east of Woodbine on Westlake Avenue, this home is replete with nearby amenities, giving lucky residents options for food, drink and proximity to public transportation, with TTC subway access only minutes away. The area is dotted with numerous family-run businesses, lending a personal appeal to the community commerce. Unique boutiques and specialty food retailers are meshed in with some conveniently located stores like Toronto East Home Hardware, Sobeys and Shopper’s Drug Mart, meaning that you don’t have to go far to get what you need in a pinch!
When kids aren’t busy playing road hockey or hopscotch, they’ll take advantage of conveniently close, reputable schools like Gledhill Junior, Earl Beatty Junior and Senior, Monarch Park Collegiate, Danforth Collegiate Technical Institute and Eastern Commerce Collegiate Institute. The Danforth is great for young families, because of the abundance of activities right at their doorstep (welcome news to any parent that has had to field the dreaded “I’m bored” on a Saturday afternoon). Monarch Park (a 5-hectare park near Danforth and Coxwell Avenues) has an outdoor pool with a two-storey waterslide, wading pool and a children's playground. East Lynn Park also has outdoor skating, ample green space as well as an organic outdoor Farmer’s market during growing season. And nearby Stephenson Park is perfect for playdates or quiet morning outings with coffee clutched in parental hands. And we love the annual Danforth East Arts Fair!
For those seeking a character detached home, allow us to welcome you to 102 Westlake Avenue.
Situated on a generously sized corner lot, this home is spacious, sunny and bright - all of which are excellent qualities from which to begin home ownership. Lovingly cared for, this marvelous sun-filled detached residence has been meticulously maintained. With most major building components attended to (a Classic Home Inspections pre-sale home inspection report is available), including a new roof in 2005, back deck construction (with permits) and landscaping in 2011, and new eavestroughs in 2014, this home is in move-in ready condition.
On the first level, the heart-grabbing traditional living room features character wood trim and tall baseboards, warm oak hardwood floors, and a charming wood-burning fireplace perfect to curl up beside on chilly nights. Well-proportioned - and with sliding doors to the garden - the separate dining room easily accommodates a dining table for eight. The tidy bright kitchen has been neatly updated with fresh-painted cabinetry, laminate counters, and newer appliances including the coveted gas range!
The upper level features three spacious bedrooms, two of which feature storage and wood flooring, while the third has newly laid broadloom. A spacious washroom - with it’s bohemian pop of colour - is perfect for kids at bath time! The lower level with its separate side entrance has been substantially upgraded - including plumbing and electrical rough-ins for a kitchenette - creating an instant supplement income or a place for your moody teen. Featuring 7’4” ceilings, recessed lighting and tile floors, this lower level is already designed to share laundry, connecting to a sizable media room and upgraded 4-piece washroom. How fabulous is that?
Boasting an extra-wide 25x90 foot corner lot, the fenced lush green setting is a wonderful place to gather friends, family and your pets. Thoughtfully designed, the garden has a covered porch that steps down to a verdant landscaped terrace with meandering paths and mature plantings. With special features like a projection screen for summer movies, sets of outdoor sunshades, an outdoor ceiling fan, plus a built-in propane barbecue and smoker, this 'cottage in the city' setting is an ideal bucolic escape. I love the semi-detached brick garage (currently used as storage) with tandem parking on the pad, creating that hard-to-find parking for two vehicles, if required.
Well-loved by the current owners for 12 years, this classic traditional dwelling, is available for occupancy in 60 to 90 days. If you desire an enchanting residence that marries the value, location, and condition, then this offering may be the home for you!
