Welcome to 56 Prust Avenue in Leslieville. This lovely character home is situated between Leslie Street and Greenwood Ave, just north of Gerard's 24-hour streetcar, on one of Leslieville's prettiest tree canopied streets. In a neighbourhood that sizzles with eclectic vibrancy, Prust Ave is a tranquil oasis lined by generously proportioned 3-storey semis largely inhabited by younger families and couples.
56 Prust offers four levels of inspiring, flexible space, currently divided as two separate living quarters consisting of two levels each.
Entering the lower space from the back garden and walk-out deck, your eyes are drawn to a sumptuous fieldstone wall that flanks the dining room and kitchen. This amazing part of the home is naturally well-lit from direct afternoon sunshine, and features hardwood flooring, an adjacent powder room, and a family room. Proceeding up the rustic and restored wood staircase to the ground floor, you come upon a cheery master bedroom with ensuite 4-piece bath, and two flexible rooms that can also be accessed from the front of the house. With a grand original fireplace in the front room and bay window in the next, these rooms offer many possibilities as a formal living room, library, additional bedroom, or as a work-from-home studio.
The upper space is accessed by way of the welcoming front porch and main entrance. Proceeding up the staircase, you are greeted by a huge expanse of exposed red brick that extends throughout the open-concept living and dining rooms. The exposed joists and brick fireplace in the living room contribute to the overall light and lofty feel of this level. The handsome exposed brick continues into the stone-adorned 4-piece bath, and upstairs throughout the third floor master bedroom retreat. This expansive bedroom showcases original pine floors, and features a walk-out to a tree-top deck with ample room for lounging, barbecuing, and outdoor dining.
Completing this truly one-of a kind home are interesting gardening opportunities, an extra-deep lot, and two-car parking that is accessed from the lane.
