Hi there, Rebecca Laing from RE/MAX Hallmark coming to you from my delightful new listing on Keewatin Ave in North Toronto.  This 4 plus 1 bedroom home is situated on one of the most kid-friendly streets within walking distance of Yonge and Eglinton.  And if you love nature and seek tranquility within the city, you’re going to want to see the backyard.  But first let’s take a look inside.

 

The open-concept living and dining rooms feature maple hardwood flooring and a cozy wood-burning fireplace with live-edge mantle.

 

The contemporary kitchen offers stainless appliances, solid surface countertops, and French doors that lead to the raised deck.

 

The second floor features 3 bedrooms, stacked laundry, and a 4pc bath.

 

On the third level is another bright and lofty bedroom with vistas of Sherwood Park.

 

The lower level is smartly finished with a separate entrance from the backyard, a second kitchen, a bedroom with 3-pc ensuite, and a staircase to the main floor.

 

The exceptionally deep 207-foot property is gently terraced with seating areas, planting gardens, and amble grass for kids and doggos to play.  Best of all, this property boasts a private entrance to the woodland oasis of Sherwood Park.  One of Toronto’s largest parks, Sherwood offers running trails, splash pads, extensive off-leash paths, and brookside serenity beneath a mature tree canopy.  It’s hard to believe you’re a few hundred metres from all the local amenities on Mount Pleasant, and less than a kilometre from everything you could want on Eglinton Ave and Yonge Street. 

 

For journeys beyond the neighbourhood, you can walk to the Line 1 Yonge subway within 20 minutes, the future Eglington Crosstown LRT in 10 minutes, and the Mount Pleasant downtown express bus and regular bus in a mere 5 minutes,

 

This privileged nook of Keewatin is particularly desired for its family-friendly character. Being a cul-de-sac, there’s no thru traffic, so kids from the street are often outside tossing the football, playing road hockey, and riding hoverboards.  After work you’ll see the adults popping out to chat with neighbours, sometimes with glass of wine in hand.  Keewatin also traditionally hosts its own street fest, outdoor movie nights, and lively Halloween festivities.  The icing on the cake is a great school catchment that includes Eglinton Jr, John Fisher's early French immersion, and North Toronto Collegiate.

 

If a family-oriented, convenient midtown home with a special connection to nature sounds appealing, then you’re going to want to check out 392 Keewatin.  Get in touch with me to find out more.
