In the heart of Toronto’s west side and across from a park and playground, this new, custom-built three-storey features a rooftop terrace with a view of the CN Tower.
“The previous house was a vacant, dilapidated property. My vision was to create a bright, light-filled space that fit seamlessly with the urban ambience around Ossington Ave.,” says homeowner and developer Adam Baguley, president of The Mada Group Inc.
“We designed this house to offer the new homeowner flexibility, as there is the option for this to be multi-generational home. As well, several of the bedrooms could serve as home offices. With a double-car heated garage, a rooftop deck with views of the CN tower, and a backyard with another deck and a lawn, this home has ample outdoor and parking spaces, rare for a downtown property,” said Baguley.
Located between Dundas St. W. and Queen St. W., the home is walking distance to most amenities, including public transit, schools and shopping, and has easy access to the Gardiner Expressway.
“This level of design and smart home luxury was previously reserved for Rosedale and Forest Hill. Now it’s possible to own such a home in a vibrant, downtown neighbourhood that’s also family-friendly, across from a large park which is beautiful throughout all seasons, and a core place of gathering for the whole community,” says listing agent Helene Baguley, the homeowner’s mother.
The contemporary three-storey features a brick facade, large windows, a glass front entry door and a metal roof.
Inside, the foyer has a hardwood floor, a high, wood-beamed ceiling, two integrated closets and a two-piece bathroom.
Features of the living room include a hardwood floor, and a modern, white metal screen wall that separates the room from the stairway.
The front sitting room has a hardwood floor, a large window, a wood-beamed ceiling and built-in recessed shelves.
