You'd like the charm and space a century home offers, but who has the time to gut it to the studs? Finding a place that doesn't need a contracting crew seems like a tall order, but look no further! This beautiful turn-key dwelling has has already been renovated and updated with care - just move in!
Welcome to 37 Fuller Avenue.
Dynamite Roncesvalles Village, having earned a new funky and fresh rep, still possesses the magic of authentic Polish butchers, bakeries and restaurants which thrive amongst a growing number of trendy restaurants, boutiques and indie coffee houses. Throw in some great pubs like The Local, second-run flicks at the Revue Cinema and tasty treats at La Cubana and Hey, and you've got yourself a neighbourhood that's no longer one of Toronto's best kept secrets. Renown for its European ambience and small-town feel, this village neighbourhood has blossomed with young families who value the proximity to the City's largest park - High Park - which, at nearly 400 acres offers playgrounds, Grenadier Pond, a zoo, baseball diamonds, an outdoor pool, and forest. And to the south of the area, the Sunnyside lakefront provides playgrounds, picnic areas, the Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion, a boardwalk, a recreation trail and beaches. Plus this house is steps to Queen West with its burgeoning restaurant scene, plus the convenience of the 24 hour streetcar to whisk you downtown!
All the necessities for family life to flourish are nearby, including libraries, day cares, churches, and great schools. There is representation from numerous school boards, with reputable elementary and high schools (including public and separate school boards, private schools) offering instruction in both English and French (as well as French Immersion programs).
This elegant 3-storey semi-detached Victorian brick dwelling retains all the charm of a vintage property yet has been thoughtfully renovated to accommodate today's busy lifestyle. It has been meticulously renovated to exude warmth and light thanks to its expansive new windows. Offering a nod to tradition with some fresh urban finishes, this residence is picture perfect urban living at its best!
Inside, this 4 bedroom 4 bath residence oozes warmth and style. From the welcoming entrance, one can see straight through to the rear floor to ceiling doors and garden beyond, contributing to a feeling of openness and flow. A glorious arched window illuminates the spacious living/dining space, which opens on to a designer kitchen with a 9' island, Caesar stone counters, and Jenn-Air Professional appliances - enough to make any chef swoon! And don't miss the brand new 2-piece powder room!
Upstairs you'll find the sun-drenched, graciously-proportioned master bedroom with a spa-like ensuite and walk-in closet. Three more unique bedrooms complete the second and third levels, including a third floor sunny cedar deck that offers sunny panoramic urbanscape vistas. It's a heart-grabber! Downstairs, a finished basement offers a generous and versatile recreation space with a 3-piece washroom to boot.
