With commanding curb appeal, 27 MacLennan Avenue is a cherished family home set on a fabulous family-friendly street in North Rosedale. Offering just shy of 4,000 square feet of fully functional and interactive spaces, this is an easy step into this coveted neighbourhood and just steps to Rosedale Park.
Upon entry, a welcoming foyer sets the tone of what is to come. The formal living room and sitting room at the front of the property is outfitted with a custom bar area, the perfect greeting for future gatherings of friends and neighbours. The formal dining room can easily play host to large-scaled entertaining, and it carries into the main floor family room at the rear of the property. The family room is overlooked by the kitchen extension with centre island and offers a convenient walk-out to the newly landscaped and very private rear gardens. The kitchen is oversized with terrific work spaces, industrial stainless steel appliances, and an easy connection to the informal spaces that are most used on a daily basis. The main floor is serviced by a two-piece powder room, and offers a convenient mud room entrance on the south side of the home.
The second floor holds three bedrooms including the principal retreat. Vaulted ceilings accentuate the cubic square footage of the principal bedroom, and it is accompanied by a large walk-in closet, garden views, and five-piece ensuite. An additional bedroom, currently used as a nursery, and a private study finish the second floor, with views overlooking MacLennan Avenue. The third floor is perfect for larger families or home-office requirements with two additional bedrooms which both offer plenty of closet space and are serviced by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.
The lower level barely feels as such, being fully finished and designed to highlight the openness of the space. A large mud room lies at the base of the stairs and is outfitted with custom cubbies and new porcelain tile flooring. The recreation room is bright and airy, and has easy access to the large laundry room, a convenient three-piece bathroom and additional storage in the utility room. As an added bonus, there is an expansive, fully-outfitted bedroom at the rear of the lower level, perfect for a nanny or in-law suite with built-in closets and an integrated desk area.
The gardens have been recently landscaped by the current owners at great expense. The deck was extended and fitted with modern glass railings, a retaining wall was built, and new fencing was installed. A canopy of trees provides immense privacy, allowing enjoyment of the green space throughout the summer months. The garage is currently used for storage, but as a note the fence line that lies on the private driveway can be removed, if desired, to allow access to the garage as well.
Set within walking distance to Rosedale Park, Summerhill Market and Whitney Public School, this location in North Rosedale is hard to beat. This is a very special North Rosedale offering that is not to be missed.
