SOLD: Beach Character | Urban Sophistication

Located on the most graceful street in the sought-after Beach Triangle, this classic
century detached four bedroom home has been renovated inside and out by its
architect-owner incorporating architectural details found in sophisticated
urban designs.

Catering to a lifestyle focussed on informal comfort, a warm palette of materials and colours contrasts with off-white walls and glass and stainless steel accents.  And the home`s century heritage is not forgotten - solid brick construction and carefully restored elements such as historic stained glass and art nouveau cast-iron radiators tell its story.

Step off your front porch and the water is within sight.  A five minute stroll finds you on the 3 km beachfront boardwalk, connecting to Woodbine Beach, Ashbridges Bay park and several yacht clubs.  Just around the corner you will find all of the shopping, services and restaurants that Queen Street East in the Beaches has to offer.  All this plus easy access to Lakeshore Blvd, Gardener Expressway, Don Valley Parkway and you are only 15 minutes to downtown Toronto!
