Welcome to 57 Ritchie Avenue, a 3+1 bedroom home well situated within the Roncesvalles Village community of Toronto.
Featuring a lush front perennial garden, covered porch, and its original brick exterior - this home opens into a ceramic tiled entrance foyer and a main level with generously sized, light-filled principal rooms.
Off the reception hall is a cozy living room, which has a fireplace framed with built-in wood shelves, and is brightened with both a chandelier and natural light through its bay window. Hardwood floors are the finishing touch, and are also found in the spacious dining room, which is open to the kitchen area. Another bay window allows for soft natural light, and the kitchen’s southeast-facing exposure brings additional brightness to these family and entertaining spaces.
The kitchen is complete with appliances, and features a ceramic back splash, slate-tiled floor, ample cabinetry and counter space - as well as the addition of a breakfast bar, and a separate peninsula with pantry storage. A powder room with glass-tiled walls is found just the walk-out to the backyard - a low-maintenance outdoor oasis with perennial gardens, a flagstone patio, and which gives access to a detached two-car garage.
A carpeted staircase leads to the upper level, and a skylight floods abundant natural light throughout the carpeted hallway. This level showcases a large double hallway closet, and slate-tiled floors in a laundry room with a pocket door entry, stacked washer and dryer, and storage; as well as in the spacious 4-pc washroom complete with built-in linen shelves, ceramic tiled walls and bath area, and a floating vanity.
The three bedrooms all have hardwood floors, with the third bedroom featuring a large bay window, and the second bedroom - with its adjoining access to the master bedroom - is well-suited as a nursery or toddler’s room. The spacious master bedroom also has a large bay window, the view filled with the lush greenery of the majestic front yard tree.
The lower level features a mechanical room housing a new high efficiency furnace, and which is combined with a laundry area with front load washer and dryer. The remainder of this level is a spacious in-law suite, which features a large bedroom with an oversized window; an open concept family room, dining area, and kitchen; a 4-pc washroom; and a separate entrance from the backyard.
With a great location in Toronto’s west end, this home is walking distance to streetcar and subway service, High Park and its zoo, schools, and numerous neighbourhood shops and restaurants; is close to St. Joseph’s Health Centre, as well as Toronto’s beautiful waterfront; and is just short drive for access to Hwys 401 and the 400, as well as to the downtown core and the QEW via the Gardiner Expressway.
