Superlative Seaton Village family home; size, character and charm with modern style and sensibilities. This is the one you have been waiting for. This solid brick Edwardian is a large and spacious home with over 3,000 square feet spread over 4 levels (2,360 above ground).
The main floor opens to an open concept living room/dining room with newer hardwood flooring, high ceilings and a cozy fireplace with exposed brick. The closet that separates the dining room from the kitchen is a great storage space but with plumbing and space could also serve as a future powder room easily enough. At the back of the first floor is the combined kitchen and rear sunroon. The kitchen is bright and modern featuring heated floors, plenty of storage space, gas stove with super convenient kettle water faucet, granite counters and double sink. The sunroom also shares heated floors and is a delightful breakfast nook that fills with morning light and that walks out to the rear patio.
Super cool exposed brick along the south wall extends from the main floor to upstairs. The second floor features three bedrooms and a 4-piece bathroom. The master bedroom at the front features a lovely bay window with custom cushioned sitting and his and hers built in closets that frame another fireplace. There is a good sized middle bedroom that has original hardwood flooring and a good sized closet. The third bedroom at the back is smaller and could serve as a super home office. It also happens to have a delightful covered balcony... flooded with morning light and about to be eye level with the flowers from the garden crabapple tree!
The renovated 2nd floor bathroom is a good family size and also features heated floors!
There are two more bedrooms up on the third floor each good sized with high ceilings, closet space and beautiful original pine floors.
The basement features more finished and usable space with a rec room area, a utility/storage area and a back bathroom/laundry zone with access to a rear room that exits out under the back yard deck!
The lot size is generous with good depth and features a delightful low maintenance landscaped back garden with large patio and filled with perennials. Parking is behind the fence at the back of the property with laneway access. The property could also be a viable candidate for potential laneway housing development!
Mature birch and magnolia trees at the front of the house round things out! This truly is a much loved family home and will no doubt continue on that tradition.
The house sits in the heart of Seaton Village on a quiet stretch of Markham Street around the corner from Bathurst Street a short walk to Bloor Street. Vermont Square Park and Palmerston Public Elementary School (with French immersion and english) are also right around the corner. Bathurst TTC station is a 5 minute walk and there are plenty of shops, cafes and commercial activity nearby.
