105 St Leonards Avenue has been a cherished family home by the same family for 26 years. It underwent a substantial renovation in 1996, with interiors revised by Matthew Sapera. It offers just shy of 3800 square feet of living space above-grade spanning over three storeys, with careful attention paid to the function and usability of each space.
The main floor offers stately formal principal rooms at the front of the home, separated by a generous foyer space and centre hall staircase. A large kitchen offers generous work spaces and an abundance of storage options, together with views over the south-facing family room which walks-out to the rear garden beyond. A handy mud room provides side-door access via the driveway, and is equipped with heated floors and two large double closets.
The second floor is filled with light in each room via the enlarged windows installed to increase the connection to the mature gardens surrounding the property. A large second floor library sits atop the family and mud rooms, and is equipped with a fireplace and multiple custom bookshelves. The master suite is king-sized and is serviced by a four-piece ensuite bathroom and generous walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms are set on the second floor with a convenient Jack-and-Jill bathroom between them.
The third floor is a welcome surprise with two large bedrooms, a three-piece bathroom and a separate office space. Multiple skylights fill this floor with natural light, and ceiling heights top 11’3” in areas with vaulted ceilings.
The lower level has been left to the next owner to create purpose as they see fit. There is a recreation room, a large laundry space, a one-piece bathroom and a large utility and storage room. It has primarily been used for storage by the current owners.
The property is set on a south 50×150 foot lot in Lawrence Park, and is equipped with solar panels which provide service to the hydronic heated floor system in many of the principal spaces on the main floor, the second floor library, and both bathrooms on the second floor. Parking is accessed via Dundurn Road and can fit up to three cars dependent on their size.
Walking access to Yonge Street is accessible in this location, being just one block east of Mount Pleasant Road, and families can also stroll to the local and coveted Blythwood Public School and come home for lunch!
A much admired home with incredibly mature gardens in the spring and summertime, this is an excellent Lawrence Park opportunity for families to enjoy and update over time.
