20 Rumsey Road

$2,900,000 - Leaside, Toronto, Canada

The Property · It’s hard not to fall in love with this one. This original Leaside home has been reimagined by Architect Kelly Lem and rebuilt with a large rear addition on the back of the home. The house features nearly 3,500 square feet of living space (including a basement). It’s cozy but sophisticated and completely turn-key. If Leaside had a movie, this home would be featured. The home sits on a large, level lot (33.29 feet by 120 feet) with a mature red maple tree in the front yard. The facade of the house is reminiscent of traditional Leaside with red brick and custom douglas fir shutters. The backyard has been carefully crafted and landscaped with a large deck (2019) with ample room for entertaining and dining outdoors.

The Finishes · The moment you walk through the door you know you are home. It’s warm and inviting with a traditional layout and formal dining experience. No expense was spared when this home was renovated in 2011. The house features lovely quarter sawn white oak floors, solid core doors with superior quality hardware, in-floor heating, plaster crown moldings throughout, Marvin windows and doors and a finished basement with a large rec room. The elegant kitchen overlooks the backyard. It features a large eat-in kitchen and island with Italian calcutta marble countertops, luxurious appliances including a Wolf Oven, Miele Dishwasher and Sub Zero Fridge.

The Location · Centrally located in South Leaside on a tree-lined street, this home is perfectly nestled in the heart of the community, with easy access to Laird, Bayview, Eglinton and the downtown core. There is lots of local shopping close by including restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and farmers markets — all within a 5 minute drive or a short walk.

The Lifestyle · Leaside is considered one of Toronto’s top family friendly neighbourhoods with excellent public and private schools closeby. The community is filled with recreational activities for both adults and children including hockey, skating, tennis, soccer, baseball and road biking (Morning Glory Riding Club). The neighbourhood is just minutes to the Granite Club, Toronto Lawn Tennis Club and more. The primary demographic in Leaside is young families and working professionals  ►
