Brilliantly situated just off Yonge Street in the very heart of mid-town Toronto, this upscale, spacious and thoroughly modern town home delivers in spades on the big three aspects of real estate...location, location, location! Equally, it delivers on numerous other fronts with bold design concepts, quality interior finishings, three exterior decks, modern appliances, three+1 bedrooms, four bathrooms, great shopping, close proximity to the subway and private parking for two vehicles. Fantastic low maintenance urban living without the elevators or condo fees!
A welcoming front foyer features limestone flooring, crown moulding, halogen lighting, additional sconce lighting and a large closet. The open concept layout flows to the well proportioned dining room which has Oak floors, crown moulding, halogen lighting and very convenient proximity to the kitchen.
The thoroughly modern kitchen is most definitely “chef ready”. It features limestone flooring, custom cabinetry throughout, granite countertops, a large under mount sink, marble backsplash with glass inserts, halogen lighting, ceiling speakers, a garburator, top quality fixtures, intercom and a breakfast area nestled in a wonderfully sunny, south facing bay window. All this is further enhanced by a full set of modern appliances including a stainless steel Viking gas range with stainless steel hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and a built-in Panasonic microwave oven.
The spacious living area is the perfect space for entertaining friends and family. It has crown moulding, halogen lighting, oak flooring, a wood burning fireplace with marble hearth and surround and double glass doors with sidelights that open onto a spacious exterior deck area. Highly complimentary to this tasteful space is a ceiling that opens expansively all the way to the third floor allowing for a wonderfully bright and airy room sensibility. There is also a large two-piece powder room with hardwood flooring, sconce lighting and a beautiful custom designed vanity.
On the second level, the master bedroom is fully carpeted and features a sunny south facing bay window perfect for a seating area. There is a luxury four piece ensuite, halogen lighting, ceiling speakers, an additional south window and generous closet space in the form of a two double and two single custom closets, all with extensive built-ins.
The master ensuite is truly an exceptional personal space. Bright and spacious, it has a fresh, clean and modern look that feature limestone flooring, a skylight, halogen lighting, a Jacuzzi tub, limestone wall tiles and tub surround, custom vanity with limestone top and backsplash, step in glass and limestone shower enclosure, a large medicine cabinet, sconce lighting, under mount sink and top quality fixtures throughout.
The den is open to the floors above and below and has Oak flooring, halogen lighting, a remote sound system control unit, ceiling speakers and an exceptional row of beautiful custom built-ins with bookcases shelving, drawers and cupboards. There is also a double glass door walk out to a small deck as well as a wood burning fireplace with a custom mantle and limestone hearth and surround…a great space for a library or entertainment centre.
The upper level hall is another architecturally interesting space. It is open right down to the main floor and features two large skylights, slate floors, halogen lighting, a linen closet and direct access to a spacious rooftop deck with an unobstructed view of downtown. There are also two bedrooms and a bathroom. The south bedroom is carpeted and has halogen lighting, a large window and a double-wide closet with shelving. The north bedroom has Oak floors, halogen lighting, ceiling speakers and two closets with built-ins. The three piece bath offers porcelain tile floor, honed granite counter top and backsplash, a vessel sink, two medicine cabinets, glass and porcelain tile step-in shower enclosure, halogen lighting and quality fixtures.
On the lower level hall there is a full sized cost closet, a substantial storage area under the stairs and direct access to the attached garage. There is a good sized recreation room area that flows into a fully carpeted fourth bedroom with halogen lighting, a large above grade window, two closets with built-ins and additional sconce lighting. The three piece bathroom has halogen lighting, a single vanity with honed granite counter top and backsplash, an under mount sink, porcelain tile bathtub enclosure and a medicine cabinet. This room configuration would make an ideal nanny suite or children’s play area.
A combination laundry/utility room with a ceramic tile floor, stacked, Maytag full size washer and dryer, a large stainless steel sink with countertop space and both upper and lower cupboards completes this lower level.
86 Alcorn Avenue is without doubt an exceptional home. It offers convenience, location, bold design features, high quality finishings and fixtures, a full suite of modern amenities, plenty of space and private parking for two cars…brilliant! It affords great proximity to superior schools, parks, playgrounds, private clubs, gourmet shops and fine dining…and is just 2 minutes from Toronto’s excellent transportation system. Only 10 minutes from the city’s downtown core and 30 minutes from the airport, this location presents an ideal urban family setting.
