A detached home with parking and only a 4-minute walk to the subway? Yes please!
With its many tall mature trees and family-friendly vibes, Linnsmore is one of the most coveted streets in the area. You’ll find a strong sense of community here, with the East York Civic Centre's Farmer’s Market, a couple of community centres, several feature-filled parks, two public libraries, and even a hospital all a short walk away. It's the kind of place where everyone hangs out on their front porches, and front lawn drop-in pizza parties for children's birthdays have become "a thing" on Linnsmore.
Located by a vibrant stretch of the Danforth, this neighbourhood offers so many things that you love about living in Toronto. Along “The Danny” you’ll find just the right mix of old school joints, mom & pop restaurants and shops, and just a sprinkling of your favourite chains.
In this lovely century home (100 years-young this year), you'll find the owners have renovated to proudly preserve the home’s character (e.g. original trim, mouldings, crystal doorknobs), yet have added touches to maximize the functionality of the space (e.g. built-in bookshelves and closets, pocket doors, storage nooks). They've also made a lot of important infrastructure improvements in the sixteen years they've enjoyed the house (upgraded wiring, 3/4" plumbing, waterproofing).
To get some fresh air, you can take in the neighbourhood's friendly front porch scene or retreat to the privacy of your backyard. What's great about this backyard is that it runs perpendicular to everyone else's so you have the enhanced privacy that comes with not staring into the back of other's houses (and vice-versa). The perennial gardens in the front and the back add some nice low-maintenance greenery to your enjoyment of your outdoor spaces.
The house and property even have colourful back stories, including that the street is the only one in Toronto that changes it's name mid-block (you're on the double-N part of the street, while your neighbour to the north is on the single-N portion). Read more about all of that in the feature sheet, check out the virtual tour, and then come and try 100 Linnsmore Crescent on for size.
