House of the week: 23 Macpherson Avenue
This stucco Summerhill home located at 23 Macpherson Ave has all the pieces of a perfect Toronto house. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms (including a first floor powder room), a finished basement, and two parking spots - it checks off all the "must haves." And then there's the location - steps from Rosedale subway station. It's hard to get a more convenient and desirable spot than that.
Zooming in, this house has got some great unique elements too. The kitchen includes a bright breakfast area with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto a back garden. The master bedroom is also a highlight. Spacious, with a large bathroom, large closets, and walk out to deck (though this is conspicuously not pictured in the listing). No matter the state of that deck, though, there is potential for great outdoor space in this urban home.
People looking for a little slice of Summerhill. No one can argue that this isn't one of the more sought after neighbourhoods in Toronto. Highly walkable, well served by transit, tree-lined streets -- and you can't forget proximity to the best LCBO in the city. You can have your choice of beverages in the large back garden!
MOVE ON IF
You're looking for something with a little more modern flair. Though this house has been spruced up and carefully staged, some of the renovations appear a bit dated (see parquet flooring and kitchen backsplash). If you were hoping for something a little more traditional, or a little more on current trend, look elsewhere. But then maybe you're just being picky -- this house is move in ready.
