House of the week: 292 Oak Park Avenue

Posted by Staff / July 1, 2014

292 oak park avenue torontoIf you're looking for a little country flavour in your Toronto home, 292 Oak Park Avenue might be for you. With a large setback from the road, you can actually enjoy the large windows that open up to the front yard on all three floors. A path snakes up to the front door - giving unique access to the home, though not ideal for moving in or otherwise carrying heavy packages. The backyard is spacious too. This could be a secluded urban paradise if you've got the imagination for it.

Inside, the first floor is open concept. While the kitchen design leaves something to be desired, it's bright and open and airy. The rest of the house feels roomy too - a large master bedroom and rec room being two highlights. If you get past the white walls and the bland staging, this house could has some real character.

292 oak park avenue torontoGOOD FOR

Outdoorsy types. You might not think of East York as an outdoorsman's paradise, but this home has A+ access to parks and trails. Less than 10 minutes and you'll be at Taylor Creek Park and connected to a series of trails that zig-zags across Toronto. Perfect for walkers, dog-walkers, runners, and cyclists. Pick your poison and get outside!

292 oak park avenue torontoMOVE ON IF

You live for downtown and your feet are your main vehicle of transportation. While this location is quickly urbanizing due to out-pricing from nearby Leslieville and Riverdale, it's not quite there yet. The walk score clocks in at only 82, pretty low by Toronto standards. The home's only a 15 minute walk from Woodbine station, but access to restaurants, grocery stores, and other amenities is limited. Woodbine-Lumsden is a neighbourhood in transition, however, so if you buy now, who knows what the future might hold?

To be honest, I find this pretty reasonable, and pretty darn nice!

It is truly a unique and gorgeous home on a picturesque lot. Note that there is a level main floor access at the rear of the property accessed via a shared laneway!
