As soon as you arrive at 222 Torresdale Avenue, you can’t help but notice the size of the lot. The owners joke that they should open up a car dealership with the amount of parking available. You can fit two cars in the garage and three on the interlocked driveway!

Double front doors invite you in to the foyer where upon you feel the generosity of space. To the right, the combined formal living room and dining room make large family dinners or entertaining your friends so easy and comfortable. Bright hardwood floors and lots of light through the wide bay window lends such an elegance to the area.

The updated eat-in kitchen offers lots of cupboard space, stainless steel appliances and an ample ceasarstone countertop for preparing wonderful meals.

Sliding glass doors lead you to a large deck with built-in seating which can accommodate so many. You’ll also notice the tremendous size of the fully-treed backyard! If having a swimming pool has always been a dream, this fenced-in yard is tailor made for it. Just beyond the property line is the Rockwell Daycare. It’s great if you’re the parents of a small child and even better as you have no residential neighbours to the back!

You can also access the backyard from the ground level family room. Although it’s a large room, it has such a cozy, warm and inviting feel. Watch TV or read a book while snuggled under a blanket.

Around the corner is the hallway which leads to the separate side entrance to the house. Here you will find a powder room, tons of cupboard space, laundry and the stairs to the lower level.

Currently the basement has two large bedrooms, a fully functional kitchen, more laundry facilities and a three-piece bathroom. This level has so many possibilities. It could be used for teenage children, a nanny-suite or an in-law suite. It’s a bonus to have the private separate side entrance leading towards the basement especially if your kids or guests want to come and go as they please without disturbing the rest of the house. They can even cook and do laundry without any inconvenience.

The upper level is where you’ll find the spacious master bedroom complete with two double closets and a five piece ensuite master bathroom. Farther down the hallway is where the second and third bedroom are, as well as an updated four piece bathroom.

All in all, this is a terrific house. It has been well maintained. It’s in a quiet family oriented neighbourhood where people are not afraid to say, “Hi” as you pass them on the street. It’s close to so many amenities such as schools and the TTC. Steeles Avenue West is just a couple of blocks away to great restaurants, stores and plazas.

If you’d like to view this terrific home, please don’t hesitate to call me.
