114 Birch Avenue

House of the Week: 114 Birch Avenue

Steps from Avenue Road, you'll find this tiny row house located at 114 Birch Avenue in Summerhill. The renovations make the most of the narrow space, which harkens back to the row houses once so popular in Toronto at the turn of the century. Walking in through the front door, you're met with a newly renovated kitchen with custom shelving and bar. Because of that, though, this house is probably better for the neat freaks among us. There's no hiding dirty dishes from visitors here.

The spacious backyard is another highlight, especially given the size of the house itself. Opening off the living room, there's plenty of room for a barbecue, a large table, and some garden space to boot. There's not enough room for running a dog or playing backyard games, but if you're looking for some extra space, you don't have to wander too far to find a neighbouring park. This historic neighbourhood has tons of green space and mature trees. A city within a park, indeed.

GOOD FOR

Starter families looking for a central location. This quiet street offers a bit of seclusion in the midst of it all. Away from the hustle and bustle, but still only a short walk from Avenue Road., Yonge Street, and Summerhill subway station, not to mention the shops and restaurants of Summerhill itself. The house itself isn't large, but that'll save on cleaning and maintenance.

MOVE ON IF

You need a little more room to stretch your legs. Calling this house a two bedroom is generous. The second bedroom is better equipped to be a nursery or home office. And the single washroom might be a sticking point. I don't think even Hilary Farr could find a magic space to add a powder room here. It just depends how important the toilet count is to you!
