63 Admiral Road Toronto

House of the week: 63 Admiral Road

Grandeur, elegant and slightly old fashion, the restored Edwardian at 63 Admiral Road is primed for social gatherings and a spot of afternoon tea. Majestic heritage houses line the streets in this prestigious part of the Annex near Davenport Road where the cost of living doesn't come cheap at just over $2.6 million.

Like others in the area, this property has been renovated over time with much of the original character still intact. Minus the mishmash of flooring (marble, hardwood and parquet!), the main floor features stain glass windows and multiple fireplaces (there's even a fireplace in the dining area). Double French doors lead to the upgraded kitchen and landscaped backyard.

The original staircase is a steep but worthwhile climb to the second and third levels. The third floor is the combined master suite and office, with a cute and very private rooftop deck. The basement features a separate entrance, along with a finished apartment for the nanny, teenager or visiting relative.

Thanks to heritage designations and city bylaws, you won't find the typical knock-downs and glass boxes on this street. Just well-preserved, stately homes in an area filled with history and lost treasures.

GOOD FOR

Notable neighbours. Admiral Road boasts Canadian star power with famous neighbours like novelist Margaret Atwood and former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. If you need a mayor selfie, John Tory lives just around the corner at Bloor and Bedford.

MOVE ON IF

For the hefty price tag, the bathrooms and bedrooms are dated and there's no garage. Still, there's two car parking in the back, a rarity even in this upscale neighbourhood.
