This handsome Georgian sits prominently on a 60- x 100-foot lot in the best location in Rosedale, a 7-minute walk from Yonge along serene, leafy, winding streets. The house was built in 1983 by Joe Brennan and was completely renovated 11 years ago in a traditional yet contemporary, timeless style.

 

 

A walk up the flagstone steps through the front door leads into the large, inviting foyer with a hall closet and a beautiful powder room tucked away for privacy. An elegant dining room, large, comfortable living room, and kitchen are all in view from this large, open space. High ceilings, just under ten feet, add to the feeling of spaciousness on this floor. The living room has large windows on two walls, showcasing the beautiful street views. There is a gas fireplace and plenty of room for large furniture. The dining room features a wood-burning fireplace flanked by two windows. The room is almost square, so it can accommodate a variety of table sizes and shapes.

 

 

 

The kitchen features marble counters and a large island with storage and seating. There is plenty of extra storage, including under the large island and in the pantry. There is a side door leading to the side of the house. The back of the kitchen features a breakfast area surrounded by windows on three sides with a walk-out and views of the elegant flagstone terrace and maintenance-free, private city garden. The gas fireplace in the family room is flanked by built-in bookshelves and has two sets of French doors leading out to the terrace and garden. 

 

 

 

The second floor contains four generous-sized bedrooms. The ceiling height is almost 9 1/2 feet. The hall is lit by a beautiful skylight. The master suite is a private wing overlooking the back garden. The cozy sitting room leads to a treetop balcony overlooking the leafy neighbourhood. The master bedroom is large and features a walk-in closet. The marble ensuite bath with heated floors contains a double vanity, a freestanding tub beneath the window, and a large walk-in shower with rainhead.

 

 

 

The second bedroom is a perfect guest suite, with its king-sized space, windows overlooking the street, double closet, and three-piece ensuite bath with a rainhead shower and heated floor. Two more bedrooms are located on this floor, and they share a five-piece bathroom with double sinks, a marble counter, heated floor and a linen closet. The fourth bedroom is currently set up as a home office, with two built-in desks and built-in bookshelves.

 

 

 

 

The lower level, with ceiling height just under 10 feet and in-floor heating, has a direct entry to the two-car garage. There is a large laundry room with a wall of cabinetry, several large closets and extra storage spaces, and a separate entrance from the back garden, which allows for a nanny suite or private guest space. The bedroom has a double closet and a large window to let in light from the back garden. The three-piece bath is perfect for guests or family. The family room features a gas fireplace.
