This beautifully renovated and restored Victorian terrace house exudes character, charm and style. 89 Summerhill Avenue is perfectly situated toward the end of the street, across from “Little Park”. It is a mere 3-minute walk to the subway and to the upscale shops of Yonge street, yet closer still to the city’s best green spaces, ravines, and family-oriented community.
The home features many original architectural details including original baseboards, solid wood doors with transom windows, crown moulding, stained glass, original stairs and bannisters with carved embellishment. Main floor ceilings near 10 feet, and almost 9 feet on its second and third floors. No narrow hallways here – and with 1873 square feet of above grade living space, its generous scale and proportions are just right.
The refined living and dining rooms and main hallway feature ArtDeco design details on the walls & ceilings and plenty of open wall space for art. The remodelled elegant French bistro-style kitchen is warm and inviting and overlooks the home’s private & tidy city garden that reads like an outdoor room.
The second floor features a bright & airy master bedroom at the front of the house, a large family washroom, a powder room and a sunny second bedroom. The master bedroom is generous in its proportions with 2 large windows overlooking the street and the park. Each window has its original stained glass in the transoms. The entire west wall of the room features a bank of 4 sets of mirrored double-doored closets. The home’s third bedroom is on the top floor, along with a family media room with a wood-burning fireplace, and south-facing windows overlooking the decked terrace with city views.
The partially finished basement is an excellent space for homework, projects, and has storage galore. Plus, there is an additional powder room. Outdoors, street parking is readily available for owners. The home is situated directly across from “Little Park”, an extension of David A Balfour Park. Little Park is home to the annual “Summerhill Fair” community event and frequented by members of the community of all ages. Move right in, bring your bikes, and enjoy your summer in the city!
