Welcome to 146 King Edward Avenue in Danforth Village.
Have you been searching for an affordable home near the subway, in a true community setting, with everything you need within walking distance? Then you are going to love this...
King Edward Ave is the type of street where neighbours know one another, interact on the street's own Facebook group, watch each other's kids, and plan street parties together.
With a WalkScore(R) of 88, it means that all the essentials are nearby, including grocery shopping at Valu-mart on the Danforth, a 24-hour Shoppers Drug Mart on Woodbine, coffee fixes from many options on the Danforth, and live music and tapas dining at Relish bar and Grill.
Commuting via the TTC? Woodbine Subway Station is only an 8 minute walk from your door. Yonge and Bloor can be reached within another 12 minutes.
Need access to a highway? You can be on the DVP in your car in under 7 minutes.
School-age children? At the start of the street is Gledhill Public School, featuring the very popular Early French immersion program from SK to grade 6.
- Wanting to enjoy the outdoors and an active lifestyle? Stan Wadlow park is just up the road, which offers baseball diamonds, a swimming pool, an off-leash dog area, a hockey arena, and a gateway to all the paths and trails of the Don Valley ravine. Another great park located a few blocks to the west along the Danforth is East Lynn Park, which hosts a regular Farmers Market, outdoor movie nights, and other community building events.
The house itself is very charming and spacious semi, with rooms for everyone to have a space to themselves. Upon entering the home past the front porch and entry hallway, you come upon the formal dining room, which could easily lend itself to be used as a home office or family room. Beyond the centre staircase is the living room which features a full-wall bookcase and an open-concept passage to the kitchen. The kitchen provides ample cabinetry, a double French door overlooking the yard, and enough space to accommodate an eat-in table for six! The upper level features two well-sized bedrooms, including a master that can accommodate a king-sized bed. The lower level offers two bright and finished recreation rooms that can serve a range of uses. Outside, you will find an extra-deep backyard featuring a two-tiered deck (great for barbecuing and entertaining), a large patch of lawn with side planting beds, and an enormous, nearly new garden shed at the back of the property.
