We next to the trendy Junction area in West Toronto which less than a 10 minute walk away. The Junction is a an artsy strip with coffee shops, microbreweries, clothing shops, and more. Also, the newest shopping mall in Toronto - The Stockyards - just opened up (April 2014) and is only an 8 minute walk away, as well as being on the streetcar line. We are located on a quiet dead end street with a walking path at the end. There are many great parks in our area, as well as wading pools. We are a 5 minute drive from beautiful High Park and a 10 minute drive from the Lakeshore. We are conveniently located on a direct bus route to the subway - 5 minute to the subway and a short 20 minute subway ride to downtown. We love where we live!
Our home is a cozy 1 1/2 story 100 year old home. The master bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed and a gorgeous skylight with a remote controlled blackout blind. The second bedroom has new twin bunk beds. These rooms are both located on the 2nd floor with artsy angled ceilings. The bathroom is (equipped with a claw foot tub) is also located on the send floor. There is a double futon in the basement that can be used. The futon has an excellent foam mattress topper that makes it quite comfortable.
We also have a bedroom on the main floor that is currently being used as a playroom for our 2 and 4 year old children. We have great toys - for indoor and outdoor use. We also have pretty much anything you might need if travelling with children (crib, high chairs, boosters etc.)
The kitchen has a breakfast bar with three stools, a stunning skylight, and new kitchen cabinets. In the backyard there is a 4 person patio set, BBQ, 2 Muskoka Chairs, children's toys/bikes, and a lovely garden.
