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.

Frances Loring Lane – 3 storey townhouse: ** SOLD**

February 4th, 2015 Posted by SOLD!! No Comment yet

The Riverside neighbourhood has grown in leaps and bounds over the last few years. With new condos on Queen St, interesting shops and pubs popping up all around the area (Merchants of Green Coffee, Prohibition) or undergoing a revival (The Opera House, the old red stone ‘club’ at 704 Queen St E…) and the brand new Joel Weeks park, the area is blossoming. A more livable area makes for more foot traffic (locals and shoppers), successful businesses, and surging property values. It’s hard to find an ‘up-and-coming’ area in Toronto – because most of ’em are already here – but Riverside is one.

That’s what makes my new listing there so exciting. Number 2 Frances Loring Lane, right near Broadview and Queen St E, is a 3 storey, 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom townhouse with wood flooring throughout. Just about five years old, it features custom cabinetry and Corian counter tops in the kitchen, built-in closet organizers and custom window coverings. It also includes parking and a storage locker, an east-facing, main-floor patio and a west-facing 3rd floor balcony over-looking the Don Valley (with a great view of the city line).

From a location/value point of view, this one is fantastic. It’s a short streetcar ride (501 or 504) downtown or up to the subway (again, the 504) and access to the DVP is right at the top of the street. You can pop down into the Don Valley for a nature walk/run/ride; stroll the local strip; or hike over to Leslieville. It’s no surprise that the walk score is 92 – and the transit score is 97!
