Property Description

Prime Beach Charmer!

Flowers and the sweet fragrance of a magnificent magnolia draw you in through the gated landscaped gardens onto your generous porch – what a welcome into a home with such a big personality!

From the unique tiles beneath your feet to the exposed brick wall that spans throughout, you won’t be bored from the moment you step inside. A wood burning fireplace with custom floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinetry warm the main floor and set the perfect tone. Wide plank floors draw you into an incredibly bright modern kitchen with a sleek palette and a custom banquet (with storage!) + a walkout into a lush garden oasis. The cutest antique peekaboo window provides you a glimpse into the living area while preparing dinner. The light filled stairwell leads to 3 bedrooms and an updated bathroom, with a double sink, quartz counters, clawfoot tub and the charismatic brick wall as your backdrop. Renovated and waterproofed, the basement is large and open with a spacious storage closet and a 3-pc renovated bathroom with a beautiful sliding wood barn door. Laundry and utilities are perfectly tucked away at the rear where you have a walkout to your backyard.

Stroll down the tree-lined street to Kew Gardens, the lake and all that Queen St has to offer. Parking is a breeze with lots available on both sides of Kenilworth. Freshly painted from top-to-bottom, if you’re looking for the perfect mix of modern + charm and character, without having gutted the soul of the home than look no further. This home is out of a story book … you write the next chapter!



The Beaches, or “Beach Village” or “Beach” as many locals call it, is a charming, laid-back neighbourhood with a vintage small-town vibe. Just 20 minutes east of downtown Toronto, the area has two main attractions: it’s sandy beach and it’s Queen Street strip.


The inviting Lake Ontario beachfront features acres of soft sand, shady parks, bike and rollerblade paths and a 3 km boardwalk, all beautifully maintained. Queen Street was designed for the person looking for convenience but who also loves to stroll. The strip reflects the easy-going atmosphere of the neighbourhood, but is bustling with quaint and quirky stores and a cool collection of bars and restaurants. Nestled between Queen Street and the boardwalk is Kew Gardens, a large public park which is home to the neighbourhood’s many festivals, craft shows, concerts and exhibitions, including the annual Beaches International Jazz Festival.


Who wouldn’t want to live in a family friendly neighbourhood with beautiful tree lined streets, walking distance to the beach and have some of the top rated schools at their disposal?  Not to mention, are you a commuter? The 301 Queen N.C., the 501 Queen S.C. and the 143 DowntownBeach express at Queen & Elmer Ave are all just minutes away!
