A large family room resides on the second floor, as well as a walk-out to a huge private terrace – your own retreat in the city. The third floor boasts two spacious bedrooms and a 2-piece powder room.
The stylishly finished basement with a separate entrance has been transformed to a funky and cozy apartment, perfect for urban dwellers or young professionals.
The neighbourhood.Beaconsfield, and the more recent "West Queen West" neighbourhood, has always been popular with members of Toronto's arts community, who have gradually migrated to this area because of its grassroots appeal. Most homes in Beaconsfield are circa 1880-1890, with stately and magnificent Victorian homes standing tall on tree-lined streets.
Queen Street West is an eclectic mix of clothing boutiques, arts and crafts stores, and stylish restaurants; the colourful Dundas Street West strip is a mix of Portuguese restaurants, fresh fruit and vegetable markets, and mouth watering bakeries. Ossington Avenue has become a foodie destination with its high-end and five star restaurants.
Beaconsfield is also family-friendly, with The McCormick Recreation Centre at 66 Sheridan Avenue, and the Trinity Community Recreation Centre at 155 Crawford Street. Both have an indoor pool, a gymnasium, a weight room, and a games room. McCormick also has an indoor skating rink and a tot park and a wading pool.
