118 Givins Street

House of the week: 118 Givins Street

If you’re looking to score a detached home at Dundas and Ossington, you’re in luck. 118 Givins Street is a 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom home that has undergone a stunning renovation, and listed at $3,199,000, it’s a good thing the reno backs it up. 

118 Givins StThe interior is refreshingly large, and the natural light from windows on either side of the home is a Toronto rarity -- especially in this neighbourhood. While the walls are bright white, the wainscoting and unique finishes add a European feel to this home. Regal wallpaper and intricate doorways encapsulate that feel, with the side yard capping it off with a grape vine trellis, apple tree and pond.  

118 Givins StThe third-floor master bedroom is a nice escape from the rest of the home, with a built-in sauna in the ensuite and private sitting room and patio to truly get away. And if you’re looking for even more privacy, there’s a self-contained unit in the basement -- complete with kitchen, patio and a walk-out entrance.

118 Givins StGOOD FOR

Someone that’s looking to live within walking distance to the Ossington strip. With Get Well, Dakota Tavern and Baby Huey in your backyard, there will be no Uber’s needed when moving the pre-party to a night out.

That, and you’re looking for some help to support the massive mortgage you’ll be paying. With a fully functioning basement apartment, complete with larger than most windows, you can rent it out to your friends who’ll be joining you on your Ossington bar crawl. 

118 Givins StMOVE ON IF 

You’d rather a bit more privacy for a 3-million dollar home. With the row of townhouses overlooking the patio on the master bedroom and side yard, you may feel as though you’re living in condo land.

That, and there’s plenty of interesting finishes in this home. You’ll either love or hate the regal wallpaper, black and white striped patio off the master bedroom and intricate woodwork adorning all interior doors.
