377 Sammon Ave – detached with private drive ** SOLD**

November 2nd, 2017 Posted by SOLD!! No Comment yet

It took a while, but patience is a virtue and this beauty is now sold! 🙂 Read on for my original thoughts on it.

This is a great two-bedroom house with a private drive (2+ spots) just a few blocks from Michael Garron (formerly Toronto East General) Hospital – so it could be the perfect house for somebody who works there! 😉 The local TDSB elementary school is RH McGregor, which features French immersion – another huge benefit at this great location.

Inside, the super spacious main floor is bright and open, with a neat den/office at the back of the house. It has a brand new, custom built (i.e. with custom cabinetry) kitchen with all new appliances. Note that the home also features two wall mounted heat exchangers. They’re not just air conditioning: on coolish days the unit will actually add heat to the house! Very cool.

The basement is also completely re-done: new concrete pad; water-proofing; a completely new bathroom; two new rooms (e.g. flex and/or rec); pot lights and cork floors. The back door leads to the basement (i.e. there’s a separate entrance), and the laundry room is right at the bottom of the stairs.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is large and has his-and-hers closets. (His has built-ins, hers is a small walk-in.) The second bedroom is plenty big enough, too. The comfortably-sized main bath was renovated by the previous owners; it’s quite nice. Basically, this house is move-in ready (for real!).

In addition to proximity to the hospital and RH McGregor, 377 Sammon Ave is walking distance to the Danforth and all that has to offer: shops, pubs, restaurants, services, and the subway. Fabulous Dieppe

Park (playing field, hockey rink and skating pad) is just two blocks away, and the East York Civic Centre (city services, a great farmers’ market, a library, tennis courts) is just a ten minute walk. And, if you want to drive somewhere, you are mere moments from the DVP (via either Don Mills or Pottery Rd). This is a great location in lots of ways.

This great three bedroom brick semi is just a few blocks north of the Danforth. Well maintained and updated by the current owners, the home features hardwood floors, original wood trim, a modern kitchen, finished basement and a loft-style attic. The classic, Toronto-style porch gives the house great curb appeal; the deep, well-tended back yard is a beautiful place to relax and entertain.

Located at the quiet end of Chisholm Ave, it’s just a short walk to Taylor Creek, Stan Wadlow and East York Memorial Arena, and also only at ten minute walk southbound to Main subway station and all the shops and services of the Danforth.

** After just one week on the market we sold this fantastic house on ‘offer night’!

East York bungalow – SOLD!!

December 3rd, 2012 Posted by SOLD!! No Comment yet

This fantastic two bedroom bungalow was gutted to the studs by the current owners and rebuilt with style! Cool modern finishes reflect a thorough planning process and careful execution. The home features a newer, open-concept kitchen, hardwood floors, 2 modern bathrooms, a fully finished basement with a wood-burning fireplace, pot lights, updated wiring and more. Plus, as is usually the case in East York, this move-in ready home has a private drive.

Just north of Charles Sauriol Parkette and close to the Brickworks, this location also offers easy access to shopping and services at Pape Village, the Broadview North area and the Danforth. Hop on the TTC and take the Broadview #8 bus down to the station (or walk!); you’re also just a short car trip to the DVP to head downtown – or northward to escape the city. Local public schools are Chester Elementary, Westwood Middle and East York CI. Catholic schools are Holy Cross elementary and St Patrick HS. All in all, this location is hard to beat.

*** Update *** After just 12 days on the market we got an offer and worked out an Agreement for the sale of this great house!

Toronto Community Housing Corp Prepares to List 68 Houses For Sale

October 18th, 2012 Posted by Hot Listings, Housing, In the media, Toronto Community Housing Corporation No Comment yet

Following the sale in 2011 of five vacant houses in the east end, (listed by yours truly), Toronto Community Housing Corporation listed five more on Crawford St in the west end in 2012. Those ‘baby steps’ have now been followed by a big step.

TCHC recently announced that they were preparing to sell 68 vacant houses from their portfolio of 650+ stand-alone houses. They posted an RFP (Request for Proposal) on their web site, asking for qualified Realtors to prepare bids. The bidding window closed on October 2012, so one would expect that those houses will be coming on the market in the not-too-distant future. Money from the sales will be spent on repairs to occupied properties, and will go a long way towards improving conditions. (TCHC faces an estimated $751,000,000 capital repair backlog.) This is great news for residents.

This is also great news for the Toronto real estate market. Although 68 houses may not sound like much in a market with about 20,000 active listings, many of the houses are in the east end (Leslieville/Riverside especially, with a few others in Riverdale, East York and Scarborough), so it could make at least a bit of difference here. As I wrote recently, house buyers are struggling with a shortage of ‘for sales’, so even a small surge in the number of available listings could help take some pressure off buyers.

Also, many of these houses, being vacant and in rough shape, represent a bit of a blot on the local landscape. Presumably, the new owners will put some time and money into improving the houses, which will benefit the block – perhaps the whole street – on which it is located. This is great news for homeowners around those properties.

Stay tuned for more info. I’ll post/re-post news as it becomes available. In the meantime, here’s the list* of houses that have been approved for sale:
