First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the perfect starter home in a family-friendly east-end enclave! That may be taking some minor liberties with the old adage, but the sentiment rings true! Amongst the milestones of newfound coupledom is a house to call 'ours', and this adorable abode is the dream condo-alternative for the young and in love (or the enterprising singletons amongst us).
Welcome to 204 Alton Avenue!
This charming attached row house is located right across the street from leafy Greenwood Park, the beating heart of this vibrant, family-focused community within the borders of trendy Leslieville! Greenwood Park is a 6.2 acre urban oasis located between Gerrard and Dundas Streets. The impressive facilities include two baseball diamonds, a splash pad to help little ones beat the heat, and a community garden for a taste of urban farming. Dog lovers will rejoice when they see the spacious off leash area - perfect for meeting your neighbours while your furry family members burn off some energy! Although we are all anxious for this miserable winter to end, residents of this community take comfort in knowing they can embrace next year’s inevitable cold weather by taking a skate around one of the two ice rinks!
Beyond Greenwood Park, Leslieville and it’s fabulous restaurants and shopping are within easy walking distance. Kick off your leisurely weekend mornings with a visit to Te Aro Café, where you can nosh on a fabulous croissant while you restock your supply of Pilot Coffee Roasters coffee. Nearby Queen Margarita Pizza is quickly establishing itself as a Toronto institution (four locations and counting!), and we're sure that after one bite of their namesake pie, you'll know what all of the fuss is about! Have a sweet tooth? Bobbette and Belle's pastries offer the perfect excuse to pop over and introduce yourself to your new neighbours; sharing these tasty treats will make you the most popular house on the block!
204 Alton Avenue is a two-story attached row house that proves great taste doesn’t require a lot of space. No detail was missed in the outfitting of this chic starter abode. Once you finish enjoying the scenery of the park (lovely even in the mucky end of winter), the house welcomes you through a dedicated foyer with generous storage. Small space lovers will rejoice when they see the closets - perfect for tucking away your coats, boots and other outdoor accessories. The combined living and dining room is anchored by whitewashed exposed brick and beautifully restored hardwood floors. Just beyond, the renovated kitchen features a full gas range, which is a necessary tool for any urban chef! The door leading to the backyard is smartly frosted allowing light to stream through, but affording some much needed privacy (for those midnight snack runs in your PJs!) The thoroughly modern design sensibilities extend out into the backyard including smart cedar fencing (gated for access your parking space) and gorgeous natural stone paving. This backyard is begging for barbecues and late nights sipping sparkling wine under the stars! Upstairs you will find two bedrooms (including one seriously adorable nursery) and a sparkling four piece bathroom, and the basement is a blank canvas just waiting for you to give it life!
