While the home in which you live matters a great deal, the overall quality of your life in the home depends on much more- like where the home is situated.
If your sense of community resonates beyond the walls of your property and connects you to your place in the neighbourhood, then this semi-detached dwell that offers a ticket to idyllic living is for you. Welcome to 80 Seymour!
This sweet three-bedroom property snuggles in "The Pocket” (which runs east of Jones Avenue south of the Danforth). Bordered by the TTC yard, and confined to single entry points, there is little traffic and much serenity in this neighbourhood. The Pocket is at once in the middle of everything - surrounded by all of life’s everyday amenities - yet at the same time removed. Low traffic means “game on” for youngsters looking to play road hockey while allowing neighbours and friends congregate in peace, enjoying each other’s company on the sidewalks and laneways.
There is a vibrant sense of cohesive community, with frequent neighbourhood events (including BBQ’s, street events and organized activities to help greenify and beautify the neighbourhood). There is communication that comes from face time, a by-product of neighbours who invest not only in their properties, but in each other as neighbours, which lends a whole other dimension to quality of life.
Beyond the vibe that connectedness offers, this home is flush with nearby amenities, giving lucky residents options for food, drink and proximity to public transportation, with TTC access nearby. The area is dotted with numerous family-run businesses, lending a personal appeal to the community commerce. Favourite local eateries of these Sellers include The Only Café and the Danforth Pizza House. Unique boutiques and speciality food retailers are meshed in with some conveniently located stores like Home Hardware, Shoppers Drug Mart and, The Pape Market 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 Blake Street Jr. PS, Earl Grey Sr. PS, Riverdale CI, Danforth Collegiate and Technical institute and Eastern Commerce Collegiate Institute. Green space and leisure opportunities abound at Phin Park with a wading pool, playground and organized events, like open-air movies.
This home is sunny and bright- which are excellent qualities from which to begin home ownership. Crossing through the foyer from an enclosed porch (which is the perfect perch for outdoor items and muddy shoes) the main floor is flanked with polished, recently refinished hardwood floors, unfolding through the open concept living / dining room. The modern kitchen is up-to-date with new countertops, fridge and faucets and is a cheerful, sunny space in which to create meals. A walk-out to a west-facing garden with a recently constructed deck, storage shed and fence, creating an outdoor refuge and a spot to barbecue. Upstairs are three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with ample double closet storage space and hardwood floors - as well as a full bathroom. Plus, this dwelling's living space was greatly increased with a finished basement that includes a sizeable family room, an additional full bathroom and more storage space.
This home has received lots of attention and upgrades in recent years. Within the last four years, both the roof on the main house and the roof on the enclosed front porch have been replaced and the exterior has been re-painted. The entire interior was re-painted, after undergoing the replacement of several building components (new heating/cooling, wiring and panel), as well as underpinning the basement and the installation of a new foundation on the north wall. Other recent improvements include a new owned hot water tank, glass doors (front and back), eaves troughs and downspouts, plus a new washer and dryer.
Featuring one car laneway parking behind the privacy fence (the gate to the neighbour's yard is for occasional access and not a legal right-of-way), this turn key residence offers one lucky buyer a dual opportunity: to own a charming property and the chance to be part of something bigger in this vibrant community.
Occupancy is as soon as the beginning of April.
