20 Beaconsfield Avenue Toronto

House of the Week: 20 Beaconsfield Avenue

Located at 20 Beaconsfield Avenue, this beautiful house is only a stumble away from Toronto standbys such as the Drake and Gladstone hotels. Highlights of this home are the Victorian features it has managed to maintain. There is beautiful stained glass throughout - at the entrance, in the living room, and upstairs too. Wood floors add to the charm, as do the beautiful plaster mouldings. But really, the windows! I could go on about those all day.

Even if it's staged blandly, you can tell that the house is fit for modern living, with an open concept on the first floor and a large master bedroom. The kitchen and bathrooms have been renovated too, although the style of the renovations unfortunately doesn't totally jive with the rest of the home. Speaking of modern living, though, this house includes a private drive and a detached garage with two parking spaces. Finally a house where you don't have to choose between cars and an urban location!

GOOD FOR

Urbanites who drive. This house is located in a prime location just off West Queen West. It couldn't be better for access to shops, restaurants, and bars. But it also has this rarity - a driveway and a garage! So if you love living downtown, and work in Mississauga, or if you love living downtown but also love your cars, this is a god spot for you!

MOVE ON IF

You're looking for a thoroughly modern feel. As mentioned, upgrades have been done to this house to make it feel a bit more 21st century. The bathrooms and kitchen have been renovated, and the first floor has a spacious feel. The really charming parts of the house, however, are the 19th century elements. This is a classic Toronto bay and gable house with heritage status, and it's best suited for someone who wants to keep it that way!
