A charming two bedroom bungalow situated within Toronto’s Cliffcrest neighbourhood, welcome to 144 Dorset Road.
Never listed for sale, this home has been family-owned since the late 1940s, and features a detached single car garage with four-vehicle driveway parking; hedges and a new fence along the north side of the property; and while set back from the street, this home’s backyard is quite deep and is shaded by mature trees.
Newer laminate flooring is found throughout much of the home, while carpeting adds coziness in the living room, which is additionally warmed by a wood-burning fireplace with stone hearth and mantle. This room and the adjacent dining room also feature deep crown moldings and decorative arched entries - while these two rooms, as well as the two bedrooms, have corner windows to maximize the natural brightness from multiple exposures.
This home also features a 4-pc washroom; separate linen, broom, and coat closets in the hallway; walk-in closets in both bedrooms; and a kitchen with a walk-out onto a recently built backyard deck, a tiled back splash, a stainless steel double sink, ample cabinetry storage, fridge and stove, as well as space for a cozy breakfast area - while the finished lower level features oversized windows throughout, a workshop area, a laundry room with front load washer and dryer, a spacious recreation area, and plenty of storage space.
