My Top 4 Open Houses for East End Toronto, December 4 & December 5

December 3, 2010

John's Top 4 East End Toronto Open Houses for December 4 & 5

Here are my favourites for open houses this weekend in BeachesLeslieville, Riverdale and Danforth East/Danforth Village, based on location, property size and features, relative to price.

There is a new Weekend Open House post every Friday! If you'd like to receive a post or tweet of my Top 4 East End Toronto Open Houses for next weekend, just leave your contact info in the comment box below.  

 Beaches: 51 Osborne Avenue $599,000. Sat. & Sun. 2-4

Beaches Open House December 4 and December 5

If you are fed up with beige, bland, cookie-cutter interiors, take a look at this renovated, semi-detached, 3 bedroom century home located in the Upper Beach. Plenty of period details with high ceilings, deep mouldings, updated country kitchen (the floor!), open concept living and dining rooms, two bathrooms and a ceramic-tiled mudroom exit to the landscaped back Garden. High Basement is unfinished but there is a private drive with detached Garage and two parking spaces. 




Riverdale Open House December 4 & December 5

Riverdale: 132 Withrow Avenue $649,000. Sat. & Sun. 2-4

Riverdale living at its most stylish! It is unusual for me to recommend a 2 bedroom home, especially at this price, but, given the location this renovated property is too good to overlook.  Truly ideal for the professional couple or small family, this semi-detached property offers maple hardwood floors, heated bathroom floors, caesarstone kitchen countertop and breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, floating staircase with glass rails, professionally finished lower level with laundry room and media/family room. Completely updated mechanicals, plumbing, roof,  sewer drains and basement waterproofing. Two parking spaces off the laneway.



Danforth East: 15 Gatwick Avenue $569,000. Sat. & Sun. 2-4

15 Gatwick Avenue

Loft-inspired backsplit, turned from 3 bedrooms to 2+ family room. So right away you'll know it's not the traditional 'family' home, but if it's just you and your partner, plus or minus an older child, this could be lovely space! Right between Woodbine and Main subway stations for easy downtown access, and there's front pad parking too. Mostly this home is all about the professional reno; and there are plans, permits, files and survey to back it up. There's a 'glam' kitchen and 3 new baths, but the icing on the cake is the basement apartment, built to 'code'. (Better check to be safe - ask me about zoning/firecode and building code.)


Leslieville : 9 Larchmount Avenue $525,000 Sat. & Sun 1-4

9 Larchmount, Leslieville

First, let's recap last weeks post, where I recommended you visit 72 Larchmount. It's sold now, & privacy laws limit what I can tell you about it, in 'the public domain'. But it was a spectacular house that warranted the unusual circumstances & price it ultimately sold for! I can share more details if it's relevant to the purchase or sale of your home. Just call or email.

Getting back to 9 Larchmount, it's similar in many respects to #72 in terms of  lot size, house size and parking, - but just doesn't have the incredible 'dazzle' that #72 had. If you'd gone to that open house, you'd see in an instant what this house could become with a few 'tweaks'. 9 Larchmount already has 2 newly done baths, quartz kitchen counters and 3/4" hardwood floors and a 2009 roof. Add some lighting and colour for dramatic effect, some contemporary furnishings and it could be a WOW! At this price it's in the comfort zone for Larchmount sale prices, and it's already had a price reduction. It's a bit close to Eastern but still right in the heart of Leslieville.
