About the home
336 Douglas Drive is exceptionally situated on beautiful, treed Chorley Park, once the site of the Lieutenant Governors residence and now renowned parkland, encircled by significant estate type homes of Rosedale. One of only two homes on the quiet cul de sac portion of Douglas Drive and spanning almost 3000 sf on three levels with an additional 1000 sf in the lower level, this fine designer renovation offers picture-postcard views from its sun drenched west and south windows. This architecturally arresting 4 plus bedroom is a centre hall plan and features a dramatic soaring staircase where light cascades down three levels from the skylight to the main entry hall. There is an inviting gas fireplace in the beautifully proportioned sunny, bright living room and the formal dining room with deck walk-out overlooks both the park and a welcoming very private garden. A chef ’s kitchen offers ample storage and integrated Viking appliances, including a gas range, as well as a large island with bar stools for an open eat in kitchen and adjacent family/entertainment area. The primary suite with marble clad ensuite and custom fitted large dressing area pampers and automatic blinds ensure privacy in this wonderfully impressive retreat. An additional bedroom on the second floor has two large walk-in closets as well as brilliant west and south exposures and could also be used as a living area/ family room or handy home office. The third level has tall ceilings and spectacular arched and pentagonal windows, and two large bedrooms, each of which have an optional lounge or office area, ideal as teen suites or for working from home. The lower level has a gas fireplace and lots of space for a great media/family room, exceptional ceiling height, abundant storage, a home gym, cozy desk/computer area and laundry. The expansive tiered deck with built-in seating and the professionally landscaped, full fenced garden, is the ultimate setting for privacy and lasting enjoyment.
About the Neighbourhood
336 Douglas Drive overlooks Chorley Park, a tranquil jewel in the city, in the most prized part of Rosedale. Just below the park is Evergreen Brick Works, a combination nature preserve and event space. The Brick Works offers a weekend farmers’ market, casual fine dining at Café Belong, and a garden centre. It is the perfect spot for a nature walk on the Brick Works trails and there are a variety of interesting events hosted throughout the year. Chorley Park also connects to the extensive Rosedale-Moore Park ravine system where you can enjoy walking and cycling trails that extend right to the lake for a true escape from city life right at your doorstep. Rosedale is a unique neighbourhood as it has a quiet residential feel, yet it is a mere fifteen minutes to downtown Toronto by car or subway. Ideally positioned, this prime property offers the conveniences of Summerhill Market, Rosedale’s Finest, Dolce Bakery, two dry cleaners, a flower shop, a design store, and a veterinary clinic all located a short walk away on Summerhill Avenue. Rosedale Park, renowned for its annual Mayfair fete, is a few blocks away and has a playground and areas for soccer, tennis, and baseball, plus winter skating. If you are in the mood for a nice walk, the shops and restaurants on Yonge Street and Roxborough Street are approximately two kilometers away. Rosedale United Church is nearby and many other places of worship are in close proximity. Mooredale House, the local community center, offers a variety of programs including swimming and is nearby on Crescent Road. The Toronto Lawn and Tennis Club, and York Racquets, Private Sports Clubs, are easily accessed, and the Granite Club is a quick drive up Bayview Avenue.
