Situated at the edge of South Annex where Little Italy, Kensington and Harbord Village intersect, 92 Ulster Street is a stunning circa 1880s Victorian that has been redesigned and reinvented into a stylish modern gem. With an exceptional Walk Score of 93, this Downtown Toronto home is set amongst a wealth of fine and casual dining, eclectic boutiques, market food shopping, lively cafes, 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 ROM 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 the urban commuter, both the Bathurst subway stop and the 506 College streetcar are a brief walk, and the Harbord Street bicycle lanes are a mere block away.
Intelligently designed and finished with quality materials, 92 Ulster is a home that is sure to satisfy sophisticated contemporary urban tastes. The restored and distinctly Victorian red brick facade has been updated with a striking 8 1/2 foot high wood door and matching wood accents. The main floor feels organically bright and airy, thanks to over 9 foot ceilings, an open floor plan, numerous recessed lights and windows, and some of the most natural appearing wide plank oak flooring to be found. The truly gourmet kitchen boasts duo-toned custom cabinetry that is Canadian made with top quality components (for the design nerds: dovetailed solid maple drawer inserts, plywood boxes, Italian laminate panels, and Blumotion soft-close hinges and slides). Decked out with a 5-burner gas cooktop, built-in ovens, numerous pantry and pot drawers, a 50-bottle wine fridge, and sparkly quartz solid-surface countertops with a waterfall end, this kitchen screams out to your inner chef and entertainer. The main floor is further equipped with a discretely-positioned powder room and a sliding door walk-out to deck and fully fenced, newly sodded backyard.
Proceeding to the second floor, a tempered glass railing and soaring skylight continue the feeling of airiness. Sliding pocket doors with modern embossed design open to each of the upper rooms. The three bedrooms are well-proportioned and equipped with ample storage, particularly the master bedroom that is graced with extensive built-in cabinetry. The 6-piece spa bathroom is truly a showstopper. Frameless glass, heated floors, escarpment natural limestone marble, dual sinks, and an enormous combines waterfall and rainfall shower head are just some of the features integrated with comfort and multi-person use in mind.
The lower level offers more fantastic space for comfortable everyday living. The open family room is accessed from both a glass-enclosed staircase and a separate entrance from the front yard, and is finished with warm, modern broadloom. The third washroom of the house offers a floating vanity and a frameless glass shower with bench.
