Style & Elegance at 35 Lakeview Ave
An incredible family home with style and elegance in the highly sought-after Trinity-Bellwoods neighbourhood. Meticulously finished with modern touches, while maintaining the charm of this 113-year-old Victorian, this 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom detached home is an exceptional urban retreat in downtown Toronto.
The welcoming entryway leads to the elegant main floor with stunning, spacious principal rooms, soaring ceilings and a sun-filled family room with floor to ceiling windows & walkout to backyard. The large gourmet kitchen is an entertainers dream, highlighted by a show-stopping 6-burner gas range, stainless steel appliances and beautiful butcher-block island.
The spacious, bright second-floor master bedroom overlooks beautiful tree-lined Lakeview Avenue, with a luxurious ensuite that features a deep soaker tub, large walk-in shower and heated floors. The second floor also features two additional well-appointed bedrooms plus one additional bathroom. Spectacular, bright third-floor open loft bedroom with sky lit vaulted ceilings is highlighted by an incredible rooftop deck providing unobstructed views of the Toronto skyline.
Lovingly cared for and impeccably restored, this family home also includes 2-car parking, upgraded electrical, new ductwork and HVAC system plus upgraded plumbing. A large basement boasts huge potential for a nanny/in-law suite, with kitchen rough-in and full bathroom. Within one of the top school districts in all of the Greater Toronto Area and steps from the TTC and some of Toronto’s best restaurants and cafés, this home is a rare find and an opportunity not to be missed.
In the Seller’s Words….
One of the things we love most about 35 Lakeview Ave, is the area itself. The street has few comparables in Toronto with the massive Boulevard, mature trees and homes that show pride of ownership. Everyone is so friendly, always smiling and saying hello. Our neighbour a few houses down even cuts the grass for the entire boulevard, so it always looks beautiful.
Trinity Bellwoods Park is just a short walk from the house, so meeting up with friends for a nice afternoon is incredibly convenient. They also have tennis courts, skating in the winter and a great farmer’s market every Tuesday afternoon – whatever you fancy, it’s a very special place in the city.
We both consider ourselves foodies (meaning we love to eat!), so having some of Toronto’s best restaurants and cafes right at our doorstep is something we absolutely love. The variety of restaurants on Ossington’s 650-meter strip is second to none in the city. You can try Fusion cuisine at the Foxley, Greek specialities at Mamakas Taverna, Cocktails at Hawker Bar, and you’re steps away from the city’s #1 takeout spot – Golden Turtle.
Outdoor space is very important to us, so we decided to add the rooftop deck. It’s such a special place for us – our own little oasis within the hustle and bustle of the city where we can have sunset cocktails, entertain friends, or even watch the CNE airshow. We even bundled up in the winter and enjoyed some mulled wine while watching the skyline twinkle.
The house is perfectly located, making getting on the Gardiner Expressway easy when heading to the cottage on the weekend. It’s also super pet-friendly as we have two Vizsla’s (Clementine & Wellington) who share the home and our love for the neighbourhood with us.
