Fall in love with this renovated heritage Victorian home in fabulous Cabbagetown! Set on quiet, tree lined Amelia Street with little-to-no traffic, this is an embracing and delightful community of neighbours to reside within. The home itself has been completely updated and renovated throughout, and has been cherished by its current owner and cared for with meticulous detail.
The main floor offers high ceilings with architectural beamed ceiling details, a wood-burning fireplace and an open-concept living and dining room space. The dining room has a French-door feature that provides access to a unique side garden with full privacy. This is a space not frequently available in this Cabbagetown neighbourhood.
The kitchen has been renovated and now holds custom cabinetry, high-end stainless-steel appliances, and space for an eat-in area for morning coffees. The window above the double kitchen sink has been enlarged and offers a tranquil garden vista, again with incredible privacy and light from the south-west exposure. There is also a main floor family room at the rear of the property with another access point to the pretty rear garden. The main floor is serviced by a concealed two-piece powder room as well for added convenience.
The second floor holds three generous bedrooms and the closet systems have been outfitted with customized interiors. There is access to second floor laundry, a renovated four-piece bathroom, and a unique south-facing rear deck.
In the lower level the ceiling heights are over seven feet tall and the space is currently designed as an in-law suite. The current resident is very quiet and respectful but will stay or go, as requested by the next owner. There is a separate entrance to this suite from the front of the property, and is equipped with motion-light sensors for added security and easy evening access.
There is a city lane that runs behind the property and many of the neighbours have created parking access from this lane. The current resident currently parks on the street.
The property is very close to local parks, the ravine system and Riverdale Farms. Enjoy walking access to the shops and amenities along Parliament Street, and the outstanding community of neighbours surrounding this special home.
Showings are permitted with strict COVID protocols in place. The agent and seller do not warrant the retrofit status of the lower in-law suite. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information on 137 Amelia Street.
