House of the Week: 32 Leuty Avenue

32 Leuty Avenue reminds me that everyone who's lived in Toronto long enough has a Beaches phase. You know, the dream of walking out your front door and onto the boardwalk, or the vision of a life in which you take your golden retriever down to the water for a morning walk (or is this all just me?). This home, located just east of Kew Gardens, could give you a chance to fulfill that dream. At just a block from Lake Ontario, you can waltz down to the beach at a moment's notice. That is, if you aren't floating in the backyard pool or enjoying a drink on the front porch instead. I can see my tan coming in already.

Aside from the location, the home itself isn't lacking character. Hardwood floors run throughout the open concept first floor and large windows give the house plenty of light. And with four bedrooms and a finished basement, this house certainly isn't wanting for space. It's great for a large family or someone with a lot of visitors, which you might have if you live here.

GOOD FOR

Summer lovers. If you're just waiting for it to warm up enough to lie on the beach, or play volleyball at Ashbridge's Bay, this could be your dream home (it's not exactly withing everyone's reach, of course). Plus, this house couldn't look more like it belongs in the Beaches, so with enough imagination, you can keep that summer feeling going year round.

MOVE ON IF

The summer cottage feel just isn't enough. Once you take off your warm weather blinders and remember that we live in Canada, the location and great outdoor space might not be such a selling point. Instead, you might see that the kitchen is in need of an update, or you might not be wowed by the rubber roof balcony. Why do you have to be so negative?
