385 Wellesley St East, Toronto, ON
You really can have it all! Just listed, this fully updated, contemporary, lightly lived-in, turnkey, Victorian gem has four beds, 3 baths, a powder room, plus finished lower level. 385 Wellesley Street East offers great living area for a family or executive couple that likes to entertain. Great curb appeal begins with a manicured garden, wrought iron fencing, classic Victorian red brick arches, cedar shingles, and carefree new windows. Word on the street is the Mulberry Tree is good luck. You will appreciate its majestic beauty, even more, when you see the master ensuite! There is something very chic about entering a Circa 1900 Victorian foyer aglow with fireplace light dancing on Farrow and Ball wallpaper. Once you step inside, however, leave the past behind and discover a state of the art wish-list of contemporary open concept living. Over ten foot ceilings on the main level, a big bay window and 3 state of the art nine foot black framed doors evoke loft-like living wrapped in vintage Victorian charm. Vaulted ceilings add room for triple upper cabinets in the two-tone custom kitchen. The combination gas stove / stainless hood fan set in full height travertine tile backsplash is a nice centerpiece for the chef in the family. Top appliances, lots of storage and a corner sink by a window make this a functional and cozy kitchen. The large center island with matching white sand Caesar stone countertop seats four (or more) providing lots of room to oversee homework while you cook .... or serve cocktails to guests. Perhaps now is a good time to mention the built-in ceiling speakers system! Dark oak floors throughout and staircase treads are strikingly set against white risers and white panel handrails. The 2nd floor offers three beds (office, library, or den) a 4 piece bathroom and a powder room. Double frosted glass doors lead to the 4th bedroom at the top of the stairs converted into a media room. Master bedroom heaven waits on the 3rd floor. Floor to ceiling European sliding glass doors open to the terrace with glass panel railings. Take in the winter city lights or summer treetop foliage while lying in bed. Hard wood floors flow into the 2 fully finished master walk-in closets and the showstopper ensuite/salon. Soak in royal style in the Victoria + Albert freestanding bathtub by the window. The grandly sized shower stall with tiled seat has dual shower heads and frameless glass door. Double sinks with drawers rest in the floating vanity. Bring your chaise lounge and crack the champagne! Approx 2660 sq. feet of finely finished living area includes the multi-purpose lower level. 2 large walk-in closets were added that are great for storage or could be removed to revert this dug-out lower level back to 1 large room. A three-piece washroom and laundry (with funky red Maytag washer dryer) also make this lower level with a window an ideal In-law, teenager, or nanny suite. Two very private south facing terraces offer shine and shade through a canopy of mature trees. When night sets in, hit the switch on the main floor terrace to be enlightened by nature turned into a work-of-art tree exhibit! 385 Wellesley Street East is a great home for a family or executive couple that appreciates being part of a neighbourhood that is walkable distance to great local amenities, the downtown core, schools, parks and the beloved Riverdale Farm. Visit Cabbagetown during Christmas, or a personal favorite Halloween, and the spirit of this well-knit eclectic picturesque pocket of Heritage protective homes will enchant you.
