As you step inside, it will be impossible to resist the extra wide layout and stylish open concept main floor that’s absolutely flooded with daylight from massive windows throughout. The front entry features a custom built-in closet with storage galore and a bench, perfect for suiting up on those blustery winter mornings. A perfect use of space starts with a built in desk or craft area that is perfect for those rainy day projects or a comfortable home office, continuing through to the family size living room and dining room open to the gorgeous chef’s kitchen, all with direct access to the yard. A living room made for relaxing, with plenty of space for multiple seating options, large west facing window and reclaimed wood built in shelves.
The entire main floor has beautiful, rich and vibrant eucalyptus hardwood flooring and crown moulding throughout. The back of the house is virtually almost all glass with large east-facing windows and patio doors opening onto the phenomenal backyard. With a large main floor powder room, the entire main floor is an easy, functional, liveable space for the whole family.
A kitchen for cooking, living, entertaining

It’s all in the details with a reclaimed wood bar, statement island lights, a wine fridge and state of the art appliances, including a Wolf gas range, round out the amenities in this fabulous kitchen. This uniquely large kitchen truly brings the outside in as the room brimming with sunlight overlooks the green and very private backyard. There’s even a bonus sitting room right off the kitchen, ensuring your family and friends always feel like they are part of the action.
Bring the indoors out all year round!
Large patio doors open up directly from the kitchen to a newly constructed covered deck with a built-in, brand new, top of the line hot tub (you’re welcome!). Enjoy this amenity year round as the deck also features a roof to protect you from the elements. This outdoor room is straight out of a cottage magazine, it resembles a Muskoka room with remote controlled screens, ceiling fans and an expansive view of the hot tub and backyard. Let the relaxing begin!
All the important rooms in this house are big and fabulous!
Upstairs features two large bedrooms with oversized windows and plenty of space and storage in each. The impressive primary bedroom is large enough to comfortably fit a king sized bed, has a generous walk-in closet and a stunning extra large window overlooking the peaceful backyard. This elegant primary suite is the ultimate in relaxation and quiet time. With a beautiful ensuite bathroom, oversized rain shower, double vanity and heated floors, this entire bedroom is a tranquil getaway from the hustle and bustle of a busy household.

Stroll around your new neighbourhood…
Located in quaint Upper Bloor West Village, a relaxed and quiet neighbourhood filled with young families. Living here will give you access to some of the the west end’s best neighbourhoods, notably Baby Point, The Junction and even the Humber River. 873 Windermere Ave is close enough to the action, a 5-10 minutes walk to the Junction strip – boutique shopping, restaurants and bars, but far enough to be a quiet escape (more on those great options here!). If you’re looking for something closer to home, there are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques to choose from on Annette Street and Jane street, literally at your doorstep. One of our favourite coffee shops is the newly opened St. John’s Pantry, located right on St. John’s Rd.
