Toronto, Canada

Arts and Crafts home by the Beach

House 5 3 2
About Our Home
Our home was built in 1939 and massively renovated 16 years ago. It is a detached 2 storey with hardwood floors, french doors and wood burning fireplace. Our dining room seats 8 comfortably and our kitchen, though I'd like to renovate it again, is fully loaded and has seen great dinners and parties. My bedroom has a cathedral ceiling and on a windy day, you can hear the waves off Lake Ontario which is 12 houses away. We have a lovely yard with a tree house and hammock plus a beautiful long teak table for summer dinners al fresco. We have 2 Queen size beds and 1 twin, my office is on the main floor at the back of the house overlooking the garden. The area amenities are exquisite. The beach has a boardwalk, running, cycling path, tennis, olympic pool, restaurants, Bohemian coffee shops and a streetcar that takes you to the city core in 20-30 min. to the museums, shops, art galleries, theatres and renowned eateries. Toronto is a magical place to explore.
Special Considerations
No smoking inside our house. My son has allergies and we are strict about this. We have a big fat cat Scratch (9 years old) lays around a lot waiting for his food. During the summer months, you'll have access to our canoe stored at the boat house on Lake Ontario, 12 houses down the street. We can only travel during school breaks and are also comfortable with uncomfortable places. Exotic travel is our friend as is a simple getaway to explore a different city. I've travelled extensively and have repeatedly swapped homes in Manhattan and Ireland successfully.
