Welcome to 364 Lauder Avenue, a three bedroom detached brick home situated within the high demand Oakwood Village neighbourhood of Toronto.
This home features a front annual/perennial garden with a mature cedar tree; a covered front porch; as well as a single vehicle parking pad in the front, with rear lane access to a detached single car garage. The fenced back yard has a concrete patio with a grapevine-covered pergola, and is accessible from the house, the garage, as well as gated side and rear entries.
The interior is filled with many details that reflect the original character of the home. Many of the original wood finishes remain to this day, including solid wood doors, wood trims and baseboards, and wainscoting - while other beautiful features include some leaded glass accent windows, a set of French doors with decorative glass inserts, chandeliers in the dining room and main hallway, and a doorbell/buzzer in the front foyer for access to the upper level (rooming houses were not unusual during the 1920s or ‘30s in Toronto, with their upstairs rooms rented out).
The main hallway has ceramic tiled flooring, and off this hall is a 4-pc washroom that is ceramic-tiled throughout, as well as access to the lower level. To the right of the foyer is the formal living and dining rooms. Both are finished with hardwood flooring and crown moldings, and the living room has the cozy touch of a fireplace with wood mantel. French doors separate these two entertaining spaces, and the dining area has both a storage pantry and a coat closet. Much of the existing kitchen is a more modern addition to the home - with plenty of cabinetry storage and ample counter work space, a cozy breakfast nook, a ceramic-tiled floor and back splash, fridge and stove, a built-into-the-wall spice cabinet, as well as walk-out access onto a deck that steps down to the backyard.
To the upper level is a hardwood staircase, and hardwood flooring is found in the hallway as well as in second and master bedrooms, with laminate flooring in the third bedroom. There is a 4-pc washroom that is ceramic-tiled throughout, a large linen closet, and a walk-in closet in the master bedroom - while characteristic to the day and age when this home was built, to the left of the staircase landing is a large room with cabinetry and a sink which would have served as a kitchen for upstairs tenants. Finished with laminate flooring, this room also gives access to the third bedroom.
The lower level has its own separate exterior side door entrance, and offers a ton of storage space, including two large storage areas, as well as under-the-staircase storage. The large recreation has been finished with laminate flooring, and there is also a kitchenette for household convenience.
This home is within the catchment areas of Rawlinson Community School, St. Clare and Holy Rosary Catholic Elementary Schools, Oakwood Collegiate Institute, George Harvey Collegiate Institute, and Blessed Archbishop Romero Catholic Secondary School.
Enjoying a great location, this home is close to TTC bus and streetcar service, places of worship, a neighbourhood park, as well as the numerous shops and services along St. Clair Avenue West - while Earlscourt Park, High Park, the Lambton Golf and Country Club, Casa Loma, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, and access to Hwy 401 are just short drives away.
