Circa 1895 Victorian Leslieville abode turned clean-lined, kick-ass dwelling for the contemporary urban family.
Welcome to 131 Morse Street.
With over 2200 sq.ft. of finished living space, its sun-drenched rooms offer an unbeatable layout and flow for daily function and entertaining.
The oversized kitchen is a dream-come-true for both the aspiring chef and rushed meal maker. With oodles of drawers, massive storage and counter space, floating shelves, built-ins, breakfast bar, study nook, and a view of the entire main floor, it's the kind of kitchen that's the object of lust.
Rarely found in Leslieville homes of this style is a generous main floor family room addition. Comfortable and practical, it offers bright leafy vistas through its giant picture window.
The second floor level is highlighted by the master bedroom retreat. Its ample built-ins, spacious ensuite bath, and tree-top view through its wall of windows are sure to induce tranquil relaxation and convenient dressing. Two additional bedrooms plus another full bathroom complete the light-filled upper level.
The not-so-basementy basement offers a delightful space for recreation and entertaining, with its high ceilings, uber slick polished concrete floors, three piece bath, office nook, and guest room.
The highly distinctive backyard is of magazine quality design. Translucent acrylic panels suspended by fibreglass I-beams combine with a broad tree canopy to provide privacy to the elevated deck, hot tub, glass water feature, and scored concrete patio. Just beyond the beefy privacy fence is an oversized lane-accessed parking spot.
Situated in the sweet spot edge of Leslieville and Riverside, it's easy to enmesh yourself in this stellar neighbourhood community.
