For those who are seeking the best of the best, you know balancing your ideal property matrix of value, location, and condition is no easy feat. This is especially true if you’re seeking to lease a space steeped in unique character that is also situated in a stellar neighbourhood and top drawer school district. If there were a property that could hit all these marks, say, a classic upgraded duplex nestled in a Triple AAA urban setting would definitely be an ideal contender, wouldn't it?
Welcome to 38 Browning Avenue, Garden Suite!
This welcoming, stately semi-detached dwelling is located in one of Toronto's most sought-after neighbourhoods: Playter Estates. Encompassing an area where residences predominantly date from the early 1900s, Playter Estates breathes its own distinct character and vibe. It's comfortable, progressive and forward-thinking. Residents enjoy its 'village-within-a-city' feel, where you can genuinely engage your neighbours and feel invested in your community's well-being. Wouldn't you love to enjoy this kind of elevated pedestrian lifestyle? This main floor garden suite for rent at 38 Browning Avenue could be just your ticket!
A host of amenities lies just steps away on The Danforth, waiting to serve you and yours. Boutique shops, cafes and purveyors of fresh produce dot the streets in full support of a pedestrian lifestyle. There is colour and conversation on every corner. Playter Estates is in proximity to a Loblaw's grocer which is open from 8am-10pm, plus there's a liquor store, Shoppers Drug Mart and organic Carrot Common! Plus with its origins as a Greek immigrant neighbourhood, there are plenty of amazing culinary destinations with excellent food. We love savoring brunch at Allen's On The Danforth, a true slice of Toronto's culinary history. And when we need a java fix? Broadview Espresso is steps away. Auto free? There's a Zip Car and AutoShare on Broadview just south of The Danforth, and the Broadview and Chester subway stations are steps away offering easy public transport. Don't miss the vast green spaces like Withrow and Riverdale Parks offering respite and recreation, and for those with school-aged children, top-notch Jackman Avenue Junior Public School serving JK to Grade 6 offers a French Immersion program so highly coveted that only those living in its catchment area can attend.
The Garden Suite is a two-bedroom and den space (and easily an optional 3 bedroom suite) located on the main and lower levels. Combining modern family friendly conveniences with the charm of living in a century home, this suite has its own private entrance from the front covered porch. From the welcoming foyer, the living room is to the immediate right and connects to a formal well-proportioned dining room. There’s a gleaming white kitchen with new stone counters and built-in dishwasher (a must for busy families!) located straight through from the foyer to the rear of the house, which connects to a bonus sun room leading to the back deck. This room easily provides extra storage potential or serve as a “mud room” to store your coats, boots or even bikes! A spacious private deck in the backyard is simply begging for backyard barbecues and dinners al fresco.
The living room, which faces the lovely streetscape, features a working wood-burning fireplace, painted floors and vintage pocket doors. In the past, this gracious large front room has functioned beautifully as a master bedroom for those requiring three bedrooms. A 3-piece washroom is also on the main level.
The lower level starts with a great carpeted den space perfect for a play area or a home office. The first of two bedrooms features a large window and spacious closet that spans the entire south wall! The highlight of the second bedroom is the walk in closet with its built in shelving. A second full bath serves both these bedrooms, while a spacious utility room provides additional storage and ensuite laundry. Complete with one-car garage parking, this unique, spacious suite is offered for $2750 per month plus hydro, inclusive of gas heating, water, and building insurance.
Recently refreshed, professionally cleaned, and possessing oodles of charm, this heart-grabbing rental is dreamy! Note, the rear garden is available for both main and upper suites to use though the rear deck is the exclusive use of the Garden Suite. Also, the owner kindly requests the tenants share in the responsibility of snow removal, garbage pick up and garden maintenance.
