Cherished by the same family since 1948, this stunning 1890’s Victorian charmer is located in the eipcentre of South Rosedale and offers nearly 3800 square feet of spectacular interiors over three stories above grade. The format is currently designed to encompass three separate units:
The main floor offers nearly 11 foot ceilings with plaster crown details intact, a restored wood burning fireplace, expansive living and dining spaces and two bedrooms. The kitchen is updated with a separate breakfast nook that has south and east facing windows that overlook the rear garden.
The owner’s suite lies on the second and third floors, and pays homage to the history of this phenomenal offering. Arched windows, plaster mouldings, two wood burning fireplaces, dramatic ceiling heights and generous proportions lie throughout. An addition at the rear of the property, added in estimation at the turn of the century, holds a renovated kitchen, family room and charming breakfast area that offers walk-out to a lovely terrace with views down to the private and lush rear gardens. There are three bedrooms in this owner’s suite that lie on the third floor, as well as two renovated bathrooms that service this unit.
The lower level was extensively renovated in 2018 and now holds a fabulous and very chic in-law suite with a stunning kitchen, two renovated washrooms, a bedroom and generous living space.
The immense curb appeal should not overshadow the extensive infrastructure improvements that have been thoughtfully carried out by the current owner:
A new slate and new copper eaves were installed in 2020.
The basement was completely renovated in 2017.
The electrical systems have been overhauled at various stages during their ownership.
There are new drains within the house and also from the house to the city connection.
Exterior waterproofing has been done to a large portion of the exterior.
Three wood burning fireplaces have been completely restored.
All hardscaping at the front and rear of the property has been lifted and professionally re-graded.
The two bathrooms that lie on the second and third floors have been renovated.
Careful attention is paid to the historical merit of this home, and it poses an exciting opportunity to its next owner to convert back to a single family home, or further renovate these fabulous interior spaces. The setting is one of the most coveted in all of Toronto, surrounded by some of the city’s most significant architecture and with access to Rosedale and Summerhill shops, as well as those of Yorkville’s high-end boutiques. Parking for two cars is available on the private driveway.
Truly a very special South Rosedale offering, and not to be missed.
