79 Lippincott St is situated at the edge of South Annex, where Harbord Village meets Little Italy and Kensington. With a near perfect Walk Score of 98, this Downtown Toronto home is set amongst a treasure trove of market food shopping, lively cafes, fine and casual dining, eclectic boutiques, and cultural sites. Everything from 24 hour grocery and drug stores, to a dog park, running track, Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, OCAD, Queen West shopping, the Royal Ontario Museum, and AGO are all quickly reached by foot and TTC. The very active Harbord Village Residents Association brings even more to this vibrant neighbourhood with year-round special events and seasonal farmers market.
For those that adore Victorian character, 79 Lippincott does not disappoint. Many of the circa 1880 architectural details remain intact, including sumptuous red brick, wood plank flooring, stained glass windows, and soaring ceilings with plaster moldings.
Multiple outdoor spaces are ideal for entertaining and peaceful relaxation. A fenced font yard with mature crabapple tree greets you from the street. The enchanting city backyard is reached by walkout from the family room and features a deck, full fencing, an historical brick wall, and a mature birch tree cluster. The second floor balcony is set amongst the trees, while the third floor walkout affords spectacular views of the downtown skyline and CN Tower.
