199 Boulton is Victorian splendor re-defined. Greeting you from the street is a traditional South Riverdale red brick facade with yellow brick accents and original timber sills. A striking 9 ft high single-lite wood door with concealed hinges provides a hint of the minimalist modern architecture that awaits inside. Upon entry, a sweeping open concept floor plan leads your eyes past the glass-panelled floating staircase and open galley kitchen to a French door enveloped family room. Soaring 10 foot ceilings are dotted not only with ample recessed lights but also striking pendants from designers like ET2. Wire brushed Pur Parket flooring in the subtly grey mist tint is sumptuously organic, and caressing underfoot. The sleek white lacquer kitchen with quartz countertops offers oodles of storage and work surfaces. Completing the kitchen are practicalities such as a touch-less faucet, breakfast bar, counter-depth fridge and gas range.
Thoughtfully designed with entertaining in mind, sun-filled family room has multiple walk-outs to a generous yard with wrap around deck that is perfect for large outdoor gatherings. The main floor powder room (one of 4 bathrooms total, a rare treat in South Riverdale!) is intelligently positioned on the main floor stair landing, offering convenience and privacy for all.
The elegantly chunky floating staircase leads you to a second level that features the same soaring 10 foot ceilings, further accentuated by multiple skylights. The master bedroom is truly a retreat, complete with a wall of closets, an ensuite 5-pc washroom with double sinks, and Juliet balcony. Two additional bedrooms are well-sized, one of which offers a walk-out to its own deck amongst the tree tops.
When it comes to practical matters, this South Riverdale home checks all the boxes, with 200 amp electrical service, updated plumbing with a manifold system, solid core interior doors with above-the-door lites and substantial metal hardware, a brand new furnace and central air conditioner, and an artificially intelligent Nest thermostat.
A stellar house such as this needs an awesome urban hood to complete the package. Situated at the edge of downtown, this spot in South Riverdale is steps to parks large and small, streetcars and bike lanes, cultural vibrancy and culinary diversity, and the best of all that The Danforth, Riverside, and Leslieville have to offer.
