The place

A three-bedroom, four-bathroom home sitting on a 127-foot-deep lot with an attached double garage just north of Queen East. It’s within walking distance of the waterfront and the Beaches’ many businesses. And motorists are a short drive from both Kingston Road and Lake Shore.

The history

Built from scratch in 2001, this two-storey home last changed hands in 2013, when the current owners, a family of four, bought the place for its proximity to the great public schools in the neighbourhood. With new career opportunities, they’re putting the property back on the market.

The tour

The glass front door faces south and leads to the open-concept living and dining area.

This 2,300-square-foot home in the Beaches is selling for $2 million.

To the right of the foyer is the living room, blending old-world motifs with contemporary pieces. That fireplace is gas.

The curved windows here add a heritage touch to the contemporary design.

This is the dining room, with new hardwood floors below and 10-foot ceilings above.

The ceilings here are 10 feet.

Down the hall is the curved kitchen, which does double duty as an office.

There's a work station in the kitchen.

There’s tons of storage in the kitchen as well as new stainless steel appliances and a marble island.

No shortage of storage in the kitchen.

Now for a closer look at the workstation. It comes with built-in illuminated shelves.

The marble breakfast bar is a nice touch.

Turning around reveals the bay-window reading nook, with a great view of the backyard garden.

The reading nook overlooks the backyard.

The main floor also has a powder room equipped with a mosaic wall.

The main suite has its own deck.

Here’s the ensuite, complete with a glass shower, a wide vanity and a soaker tub.

Note the soaker tub and shower system in the bathroom.

Here’s the view from the main-suite deck, which is like a private treehouse.

This may as well be an east end treehouse.

This secondary bathroom comes with a big closet, a workstation and a view of the neighbourhood.

The kid’s room—featuring a skylight—could be converted to an office, a lounge or a guest suite.
