6 Benlamond is a true and rare Heritage home in The Beaches neighbourhood of Toronto. Designed by legendary architect Frank Darling, known for his work on several area Toronto locations including Convocation Hall and Hockey Hall of Fame, this grand residence retains much of its beautiful character and sits on a large lot – 38’x50’. Located on a quiet private road, it offers the ultimate tranquility with stunning ravine, city, and lake views.
This impressive home welcomes you with soaring ceilings, intricate mouldings, stained-glass accents, exquisite woodwork, and wainscoting. As you enter the main level, you can tell the home’s historic charm is well captured in the accents of the home. The traditional wood detailing is beautifully contrasted by the addition of light wood flooring throughout. The formal living room and dining room offer bright and spacious entertaining spaces for hosting family gatherings or enjoying a night in.
The gorgeous kitchen features pristine marble countertops and white cabinetry, making the space feel fresh and clean. It offers plenty of storage and a designated breakfast nook by the grand window.
On the second level, you will find 3 of the home’s 5 bedrooms. The master bedroom is the perfect oasis to relax and unwind. This room offers a beautiful fireplace and double closets, as well as a bay window that allows plenty of natural light to flood in. The second and third bedrooms are quite large and offer plenty of variety to the typical bedroom layouts. The third level features two more bedrooms and an office space that features separate access from the bedroom, providing a focused space to get work done.
The lower level provides an ideal space for both work and play. The massive recreation room would be perfect to turn into a family home theatre or a children’s play area. There is also a workshop located on the lower level, which could be the perfect spot for any craftsperson in the family. The lower level also offers plenty of storage options, which is ideal for extra clothing, equipment, bedding, etc.
Since this home is on a large lot, the backyard is a grand space for children to play and to entertain in the warmer months. The home features a side patio that wraps around the home to connect to the back patio. This home is located within close proximity of GO Transit and TTC Subway and Streetcars, offering direct access to the downtown core in minutes.
