Fab new Beach Triangle listing: Brookmount Rd semi ** SOLD **

June 9th, 2014 Posted by Beaches, Hot Listings No Comment yet


Fifty-six Brookmount Road is a gorgeous, renovated home on one of the best streets in the area. The Beach Triangle is known for its attractive red brick homes and mature tree canopy. Set on the western edge of The Beach, the Triangle offers immediate access to everything Beach, but without having to battle the Queen St East traffic. The upper half of Brookmount Rd (as well as parts of Dixon and Columbine Aves.) is extra fortunate to have a ‘secret’ park behind it, formally known as Jeff Sloan Playground.

The house has been extensively renovated, including a new custom kitchen with Ceasarstone countertops, soft-close doors and drawers and LG appliances. The main floor also features wide-plank engineered flooring, pot lights and a family room addition. Sliding glass doors walk out to a custom-designed, two-level deck with access to laneway parking and the parkette.

The home features three sizable bedrooms, each with its own unique features. The master features a wall-to-wall closet system; the middle room a set of lofts for storage and more; the rear bedroom has windows on two sides, and overlooks the parkette. The fantastic main (upstairs) bathroom features a large tub, separate shower, double sinks and heated floors.

From the Triangle you have quick access to both the Kingston Rd and Queen St streetcars, and to the Woodbine bus for a quick ride up to the subway. Wherever you are going, you can get there fast from here! Of course, it’s a short, pretty walk to the shops, cafes and restaurants of Queen St. Local schools are Kew Beach Jr PS, Bowmore Rd Jr & Sr, and Monarch Park CI, St Denis and St John Catholic.


Beautiful detached home on Neville Park Blvd – SOLD!!

October 25th, 2013 Posted by Beaches, SOLD!! No Comment yet

Nestled within the urban forest that characterizes the Beach, Neville Park Blvd is a quiet cul-de-sac near the very end of Queen St East. Number 151 is a gorgeous, three bedroom detached home that has been extensively renovated over the last year.

The two storey rear addition was re-built from the footings up (including a comprehensive drainage system to mitigate the high local water table), the kitchen was completely re-designed, the electrical panel and wiring were upgraded, and new hardwood was installed throughout the house.



Plenty of other improvements have been made in 2013, including:

  • All new appliances
  • New roof
  • New furnace
  • Freshly painted throughout
  • New windows in the kitchen and master bedroom
  • New tile flooring in the front hall, kitchen and powder room; new carpeting on stairs
  • 200 amp service, new electrical panel
  • Pot lights in kitchen, living room and master bedroom; electric light fixtures and ceiling fans
  • Re-built wood burning fireplace and chimney
  • Professional landscaping

Prior to that, the two upstairs bathrooms were renovated, new exterior stucco was applied, a new front door was installed, and more. This home is truly in ‘move-in’ condition.

The Beach is famous not only for its unmatched natural environment, but also its walkability as a neighbourhood of local people and businesses. Everything you need is close by – shops, services, restaurants, athletic amenities and schools (Balmy Beach CS, Glen Ames Sr PS and Malvern CI; Catholic elementary St Denis and St John). Getting downtown is a simple matter of hopping on the 501 Streetcar (or the 143 Downtown/Beach Express bus). Altogether, this is a unique part of Toronto that offers a truly unique lifestyle. 

** UPDATE – This great house sold in just seven days! 🙂
