Welcome to 46 Corley Avenue, a charming semi-detached home nestled on a tree-lined street within a well-established neighbourhood of Toronto’s Upper Beaches community.
The home was originally built in the early 1900s, and still retains some of the characteristic features of the era. The main and upper level feature original hardwood flooring, as well as some of the original interior trims and baseboards - and the original radiators are still present.
Sitting above the street, concrete steps lead up to wood front patio, and through the glass panelled entry door is a south-facing sunroom and foyer with a double coat closet and a wall of windows for natural brightness.
The living room features pot lighting, and a wall cut-out with lower display shelves separates this room from the foyer without disturbing the open-themed flow of the main level - while along its west wall is a fireplace mantle that has built-in wood shelves for books and personal treasures (note**there is no working fireplace).
The staircase to the upper level separates the living room from the dining area and kitchen, and the dining room has both pot lighting and a elegant metal chandelier for ambient lighting.The kitchen is quite cozy, yet has efficient work and storage space. The cabinetry has glass panelled uppers and is complemented with open display/storage shelves and a pantry; by the stainless steel sink is a large window with backyard views; and the kitchen is complete with a fridge with bottom mont freezer, as well as a stainless steel stove, range hood, and dishwasher.
Off the kitchen is a French door walk-out onto an enclosed outdoor patio (also called a ‘catio’, as it serves as a secure outdoor space for cats and other small pets, as well!), and through this enclosure is the backyard. Cozy and private, the yard features a wood deck, stone landscaping, perennial gardens, and a storage shed.
The upper level features two bedrooms and a washroom - their entry doors complete with interior transoms - and the second bedroom also provides access to a bonus room overlooking the backyard that has two walls of windows and is ideal as a home office or as a hobby/crafts room. The second bedroom has ample closet space, while the master bedroom showcases a huge double sized closet, as well as an oversized south-facing window and a ceiling fan. Completing this level is the 4-pc washroom, which features a Euro-style vanity, as well as a vintage clawfoot bath tub with a characteristic shower head and oval-shaped curtain rod.
Off the dining room is access to the lower level, which has a cozy recreation space, a 2-pc washroom with Euro-style vanity, and a combined storage/mechanical/laundry room with front load washer and dryer.
Norway Public School is right across the street (note**its main entrance is off of Kingston Road), and this home is also within the catchment areas of Bowmore Road Jr. and Sr. Public School, St. John (Toronto) Catholic Elementary School, Monarch Park Collegiate Institute, Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute, St. Patrick Catholic Secondary School, and Notre Dame Catholic High School.
It’s a short walk to TTC bus and streetcar service, and there are also many nearby parks, places of worship, and community facilities. For downtown commuters, Lakeshore Boulevard is minutes away by car to connect with the Gardiner Expressway, while both the Danforth GO and Main Street Subway Stations are a six minute drive or 20 minute walk. To the north are the East Danforth and Danforth Village communities - which have great restaurants, entertainment, and community events - while to south is the vibrant Beach neighbourhood, with its trendy shops, artisans, dining establishments, festivals and events, as well as its beach and boardwalk along Lake Ontario.
