24 Elm Grove Avenue

House of the week: 24 Elm Grove Avenue

This Victorian home located at 24 Elm Grove Ave in Parkdale is chock full of charm. There are the stained glass windows, crown moulding, and the high ceilings. But the hardwood floors throughout the first floor really take the cake. No signs of a quick renovation with cheap materials here. This house has real character.

That doesn't mean it isn't without modern convenience, though. A large master bedroom is located on the third floor complete with a four piece en suite bathroom and plentiful closet space. Downstairs, the kitchen has been tastefully renovated and includes a small powder room perfect for guests. The house includes tons of modern touches rarely found in historic homes. Put simply: this house has class.

GOOD FOR

Lovers of Victorian architecture. Though many Toronto homes offer glimpses of their former selves, few do so well as this one. The best of this home's original features have been maintained. Maintained being a key word here. Just because it has charm doesn't mean there are tons of renovations to be done. Character without additional construction costs - what a dream.

MOVE ON IF

You're looking for a little more modern flair. Maybe a new condo is more your style with sharp edges and clean lines. Maybe you want a little better transit access - you'll have to rely on the Dufferin bus and Queen streetcar here. Other than that, I'm not really sure. A beautiful house in a trendy neighbourhood with a large backyard. Hits all the marks, if you ask me.
