For those on the market for a new abode who are holding strong to a $2 million budget, this stunner on Simpson Avenue might just do the trick.
Spacious, sun-filled, and recently-listed for $1,996,000, this North Riverside property boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and ample outdoor space. Standing tall in the heart of one of the coziest neighbourhoods the east side has to offer, 96 Simpson Avenue is a truly ideal family home.
The address has been fully renovated, and comes fully-finished with exceptional features including a custom-designed kitchen with ample storage. Bright and airy rooms, encased by large windows, are filled with natural light, while an all-glass, four-season family room overlooks the property’s large backyard. In this hangout space, the whole family can gather for a movie on a rainy night or for board games in mid-winter.
It’s sometimes said the devil’s in the details, but we’d argue the small stuff in this space is all blessed. Multiple skylights, hickory flooring throughout, heated bathroom floors, custom closet organizers, and an audio system with speakers are only a few of the “extras” to be found onsite, all of which serve to amplify and infuse ease into the living experience this home provides.
The third-floor master retreat is described as “flexible,” as at this time, the space is being used as a bedroom, dressing room, and luxe ensuite. Walk-in closet organizers can be removed from the area to make way for that fifth bedroom, or stay in place providing extra storage if additional chambers aren’t required. On the same note, for a smaller family, bedroom space can also be converted into office space, allowing a more comfortable experience during the era of work-from-home.
And while, yes, staying relatively remote is a (necessary) trend these days, there are still plenty of excuses to roam the neighbourhood. Whether it’s to pick up some takeout from nearby Chinatown East, to bring home some craft beer from Dundas and Carlaw, or simply to get some fresh air in Withrow or Riverdale Park, the home’s surrounding area invites you to embrace its community-vibe, even under different-than-typical circumstances.
For the young ones in the family, Withrow School is also nearby — a 15-minute walk, to be exact. Read: just far enough for the burning off of excess energy at the end of the school day.
