It's the little things that go a long way when it comes to the perfect home. With this special Trinity Bellwoods semi-detached, which in fact is currently the architect's home, you will find many special features that stand out and add something a little extra to your living experience here.
Nestled in a quiet laneway of Trinity Bellwoods, this home is close to exciting shops and restaurants on Ossington, Dundas West, Queen West and College Street. Perfect for those who appreciate experiencing this buzzing area on foot, it has a walk score of 91. The home is full of unique design details. Throughout, you will find quality wide plank oak engineered hardwood floors installed to replicate the lime wash floors of the home's original period (1870's).
The living room is a lovely space, which has a beautiful ceramic tiled fireplace surround, reclaimed from a heritage Rosedale home. It is a stunning focal point in this room.
The dinning room, separate from the living room, offers space for a large table for entertaining. It also has access to the basement. The main floor washroom is accessible from the dinning room as well, with heated floors for comfort, and the original freestanding clawfoot bathtub.
The sun-filled gourmet kitchen is perhaps one of the most beautiful spaces in this home. The custom Bauhaus floor to ceiling swinging window and door system spans the entire back of the house. It creates a wonderful connection to the outdoor space, especially on lovely summer days. The large chef's island offers ample counter top space, and is perfect for guests to gather around while you entertain. The white quartzite counters blend beautifully with the white cabinetry.
On the second floor, the charming master bedroom boasts modern features. South-facing, it offers natural light and a gentle wake-up call on sunny mornings. The master closet contains stylish built-ins. Access the master en suite through barn door entry, where you are greeted with heated floors, an electric towel warmer, a glass enclosed shower and contemporary vanity.
Treat your guests to the comfortable second bedroom, which overlooks the rear garden of the home. It can also be used as a child's bedroom or home office.
Now, what is the Bay Street secret? The rear courtyard garden, which is clutter-free has some very interesting patio stone. The stone is reclaimed marble slabs obtained during the restoration of First Canadian Place. A little hint of Bay Street for those who feel like they need a little piece of the Financial District in their quiet and quaint fully renovated home.
