House of the week: 74 Inglewood Drive
What does a $2 million property look like in Moore Park these days? 74 Inglewood Drive is a 1920s modernist-style home near St. Clair Avenue East on the market for $2,265,000. Located in one of the city's prime real estate pockets, Moore Park is a quiet neighbourhood featuring rows of grand old houses with driveways and the popular Belt Line trail.
This three-storey house is a little different than other single-family dwellings in the area. The arched doorway gives way to a renovated but old school floorplan with Frank Lloyd Wright inspired leaded windows and a metal handrail design on the staircase. There is a smallish galley kitchen, a double height ceiling in the living room (with a structural pillar), and a third floor open concept loft.
The neighbours on the street are very friendly--maybe even too nice. Every Christmas, the residents on Inglewood Drive dot their front lawns with a 14-foot inflatable Santa Clause (no joke!). Expect a welcome basket when you move in.
Cyclists and runners. The Moore Park Ravine is one of the best walking and cycling trails in the city. It's a quiet area, stretching from Mount Pleasant Cemetery to the Don Valley Brick Works, and great for an early morning jog or getting in touch with your inner zen. Come back in the fall to watch the leaves change colours.
MOVE ON IF
Besides the inflatable Santas, be wary of coyotes and other wildlife lurking in the ravine.
