Ideally situated in Lawrence Park, one of Toronto’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, the elegant centre hall residence at 118 St. Leonard’s Avenue enjoys a spectacular pool-size garden edged with lush, colourful perennial plants and trees. A magnificent, covered veranda provides a wonderful area for outdoor entertaining from spring through autumn seasons.

 

 

This lovely home has enjoyed two significant renovations over the last ten years.  In keeping with the tasteful, three-storey addition by the previous owners, the current owners have maintained the historical integrity of this classic Lawrence Park architecture. Some of their most notable improvements include a major garage renovation/expansion, with a raised roof, providing wonderful loft space for additional storage, as well as an enclosed staircase with direct access to the basement mudroom, a total kitchen and servery renovation (2016) and master ensuite bath (2016). In addition, all front windows have been replaced. These two major renovations have enhanced the curb appeal of this attractive residence.

 

 

The delightful main floor features a gracious living room, which enjoys two seating areas and features a handsome wood-burning fireplace.  The formal dining room is highlighted by lovely stained glass windows and a south facing bay window with views of the sunny front garden. A large servery, which links the dining room to the kitchen, provides lots of extra storage with extensive upper and lower cabinets (with bar sink) and a floor-to-ceiling pantry cupboard. The beautiful, renovated kitchen, designed with the chef in mind, features a large island with double porcelain sink and breakfast bar.  It is combined, with a charming family room graced with a handsome stone fireplace.  This great room overlooks the magical, landscaped garden and opens to the expansive, covered veranda. 

 

 

 

 

The second floor accommodates a large master bedroom, with his/hers walk-in closets, built-in clothes cabinet/drawers and a large, renovated, five-piece en-suite bathroom.  Three additional bedrooms are located on this level, as well as the updated, four-piece main bathroom.

 

 

 

 

The fully finished basement houses a cozy nanny’s suite, a den, a spacious games room with above ground windows, a laundry room and a mudroom with walk-up to the attached garage and the garden.

 

 

 

The special appeal of this wonderful property is enhanced by its proximity to fine public and private schools and parklands.  The Toronto ravine parks system is a short walk away, providing a country experience within urban surroundings.  This sought-after area presents convenient access to TTC, shops, and fine restaurants. In addition, it is within an easy drive of the city’s financial centre and Pearson International airport.

 

This stunning property is currently listed at $3,380,000. For more information, please contact Paula and Vicko Von Stedingk at (416) 925-9191.
