House in midtown Toronto

Built in 1919, our home features many lovely construction details, including the central entrance hall with its rich dark wood.  The house is completely modern and up to date, however, having been recently renovated.  It is very comfortable and is set out on three levels.  There is central heating/ air-conditioning throughout the house, as well as all other modern features and conveniences.  The main floor features hardwood floors while the upper and lower levels are carpeted.

On the main floor are separate living and dining rooms, the kitchen with its own separate dining area and a large family sitting area.  In the family area are a large-screen television, dvd player and full audio system set in a large custom built wall unit. The kitchen features a gas cooktop and oven, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge/ freezer, drip and stovetop coffee makers, coffee grinder, toaster oven and mini convection oven, and many other appliances. The entire main floor was recently redone and features new granite countertops, and a new sink in the kitchen. All the floors were sanded and restained and the walls were all repainted.

On the upper level are three bedrooms (the master bedroom with a king sized bed, an ensuite bathroom including shower stall and jacuzzi tub, and two additional bedrooms with twin sized beds).  There is also a full second bathroom with shower and bathtub upstairs. The two additional bedrooms and the second bathroom were also recently renovated.

The basement (lower level) is fully furnished with a large room with a double futon bed/ couch and a two piece bathroom.  The new washing machine and dryer are also located in the basement.

We also have a backyard/ garden with a large wooden deck.  On the deck is a large table with six chairs where you can sit out and enjoy the large mature trees that provide a respite from the city.  On the deck, just beside the door to the house, is also a gas barbecue.

We would also like to do a car exchange with our new four door car, with automatic transmission, air-conditioning, and Bluetooth / Apple / Android audio system.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Pearson or Billy Bishop City Island -

Our home is situated in the middle of Toronto, in the Yonge and Eglinton area.  This is a major intersection with many stores, restaurants, cafes, cinemas and other amenities.  Within a few short blocks, there are literally hundreds of options for entertainment, shopping for food and clothing, and restaurants.  Our home is on a small street only two minutes walk from many of these stores and restaurants and 8 minutes walk from either of two subway stops (Eglinton and Davisville).  The street is very quiet with many mature trees and older homes, despite being so close to the businesses of the area.

There are excellent food shops in the area, many within walking distance and others only a few minutes away by car.  Options range from local boutiques with local bread, fruits and vegetables to large supermarkets open 24 hours.  There are also three city parks within walking distance along with a community centre featuring both indoor and outdoor pools and fitness facilities.  We also offer our bicycles for those who wish to explore the area by bike.

Within minutes of our home are the downtown areas that feature the city's museums, art galleries, major shopping areas, and public and historic buildings.  Toronto is also a city of neighbourhoods, both ethnic (Chinatown, Greektown, Little India) and feature-based (High Park, Harbourfront and the Beach by Lake Ontario, the Distillery District). Also close by are the Science Centre, amusement parks with rides and other entertainment options.  We would be pleased to provide you with more information and we supply many brochures and guide books that provide more information on our city.

Lifestyle

There are so many things to do locally, without even having to leave the neighbourhood.  You can walk to do your food shopping, go to restaurants, the cinema (4 cinemas - 21 screens!), pubs, bars, dance clubs, and much more.  There are several parks with playgrounds for children, as well as bike trails and hiking trails within a few minutes walk, so you can sit in the park, hike and bike in the area as well.  We offer bicycles for those who want to use them.  Other exchange partners have even ridden our bikes all over the city, discovering other neighbourhoods and sightseeing, without even stepping into a car!  You can explore the whole city or just our small part of it.
