About the Neighbourhood
South Rosedale is one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Toronto and this home’s location, where Chestnut Park meets Roxborough Street East, is the most treasured. Leafy mature trees and stately homes provide a breathtaking backdrop to the surrounding neighborhood. The walkability is exceptional with the Rosedale subway station just five minutes away. In fact, there is little need for a car at all as grocery stores, boutiques, outstanding restaurants and coffee shops are all very close by. A patio dinner at Terroni or fine dining at Sorrel are truly just steps away. The Rosedale-Moore Park Ravine, with nature trails and the popular Brickworks Farmers’ Market, is a short walk away for a quick escape from the bustle of city life.
About the Home
An English rose on Roxborough! Built in 1908, this charming, detached Victorian residence has been meticulously maintained and updated throughout the years by its current owner. The home offers an open concept main floor with a generous entranceway that leads to a bright living room with a gas fireplace. A combined dining-kitchen space looks out upon a spectacular, deep, south-facing mature garden. The second and third floors have four well-proportioned bedrooms and a den, and the principal bedroom’s south-facing French doors provide a lovely view of the gardens. A separate entrance to the lower level makes it ideal for a nanny, in-law or teen suite. High-quality updates to the home include details such as copper eavestroughs and an InSpire slate roof that was installed in 2014 and carries a lifetime warranty. The windows at the front of the house were updated in 2012 with interior leaded glass created to replicate the home’s original windows. The exterior wood was clad and does not require painting. Mature trees and greenery provide privacy to the home’s spectacular English garden that the owner has thoughtfully maintained over the years. A feature pond and two garden sheds at the south end help to frame the picturesque surroundings. This treasured home on this noteworthy Rosedale street is not be missed
