Charming, traditional family home in prime Roncesvalles Village! This 2 storey brick end of row homes (just like a semi) on a pretty tree-lined street retains plenty of character and is well updated. With two-car parking via lane, this lovely home provides an ideal opportunity for couples & families to live in a highly sought after area! An extra benefit is that the current owners have obtained all municipal permits along with professional builders' plans for a major rear addition – buyers can renovate extensively any time without going through a lengthy and expensive process!

The vibrant neighbourhood of Roncesvalles Village is a mix of old world and gentrification. Family-friendly and blessed with excellent transportation routes plus a varied commercial shopping district, this area also boasts parkland & recreational opportunities within walking distance. At the heart of this neighbourhood is Roncesvalles Avenue, a diverse mix of chic restaurants and gourmet stores rubbing elbows with ethnic delis, coffee shops and family businesses. 48 Fermanagh is a short stroll to such neighbourhood mainstays as Qi Natural Foods, the Kennel Café gourmet pet store, Pollocks Home Hardware, and Queen of Tarts. The Polish influence is strong with many delicious deli's & grocery options, while all the popular chain stores (Loblaws, Rogers Video, LCBO, Shoppers Drug Mart etc.) are closer to Bloor Street to the north.

Nearby Sorauren Park is the central meeting spot for many neighbourhood activities. There are the numerous dogs playing off–leash, the little league in spring and fall, plus the day camps in summer and many annual events including the famous pumpkin contest. There are tennis courts, a soccer field, and a baseball diamond in this park located just down the street. Across the street is a large kids' playground. Just a few blocks west is the fabulous High Park & Grenadier Pond with 399 acres of parkland & recreational activities providing a whole day's family enjoyment.

Getting around is easy with so much public transit: The Roncesvalles streetcar to Dundas West or Broadview subway stations is right at the corner, transferring to the College streetcar at Howard Park, while the Queen & King streetcars connects to downtown and subway stations on the Yonge/University line.

The home has superb curb appeal, featuring the fabulous turret and old fashioned wood front porch perfect for enjoying after dinner drinks while overlooking the mature trees and gardens. Charm and character abound as you enter the foyer of this attractive family home.

The separate living room features a fireplace with a mantel perfect for displaying heirlooms or modern treasures, and a stained glass window in this room casts prisms of light in the afternoon sun. Pillars unite the living room with the classic formal dining room, where hardwood floors, crown moldings and a big bay window with wide ledge create an environment for elegant dinners.

The modern eat-in kitchen was well renovated including granite countertops and designer off white & glass cabinets. The matching wide kitchen island includes additional storage. Whether preparing meals, doing homework or opening mail, this charming room will be a gathering place for the family. A rare, oversized pantry offers ample storage solutions for bulk goods, and the like. There is a walk out to the flagstone patio and garage.

Berber-carpeted stairs lead to the second floor. The master bedroom is flooded with light from the turret windows. This room features hardwood floors, closet and a delicately sloped ceiling. The middle bedroom is decorated in happy pastels. A sunny rear bedroom is currently being used as an office and has plumbing roughed in offering various options. A cheery updated four-piece bath includes a window for light and circulation.

The basement is large and unfinished with plenty of storage space plus laundry area. The spacious rear entry accesses from the back yard for storing lawn furniture and accessories, bikes etc.

The sunny rear yard was landscaped with a flagstone BBQ area and bright flower borders consisting of both annuals and perennials. There is a wooden privacy fence for safe play by children and pets. The 2 car parking via lane includes a single detached garage plus there is room to park a second vehicle directly behind the garage.
