About this listing

Casual elegance in a three level Victorian designer home located close to downtown in the upscale Rosedale neighbourhood. The house retains much of it's original period detailing, but has been decorated in a light and airy style.

The space

Walking through an archway up the cobbled path the house is set back from the street . The exterior retains much of its Victorian detailing including the original stained glass windows.

You enter in to a small vestibule with french door and then straight in to the large open concept living dining area. The room is decorated in a casual but elegant style in neural tones of white and ivory with gilt accents. The room is filled with antique treasures acquired on my many buying trips to Europe. There is a small original Victorian working fireplace.

The separate kitchen area has basic cabinetry and appliances but is filled with character and charm with its exposed brick wall and antique wooden island. The room is bright and sunny with sliding doors to a small deck with dining area for two.

Off of the deck there is a private enclosed garden planted with flowers and overgrown with ancient wisteria , trumpet and grape vines.There is a sunny sitting area and a shaded dining area for six. There is a weber bbq.

The painted original staircase leads to the second floor. The front bedroom has a large stained glass window and is the largest of the three on this floor. It has a queen size bed and is decorated in neutral grey tones.

The pretty middle bedroom also has a queen bed and is decorated in pale blue and mauve florals.

The rear bedroom overlooks the garden and is decorated in green tones of moss and chartreuse. It features an antique Directoire period single daybed.

The main bath room on this floor has a marble counter with two sings and a full bath.

Up an open staircase is the master bedroom taking up the full top floor of the house with sloping ceilings and a seating bay overlooking the main street. It has a ensuite bathroom with shower and a sunny roof deck with seating area.There is a daybed in the widow bay that can accommodate a child for sleeping close by. There is a curtain at the bottom of the stairs for privacy. Note:selected drawers and wardrobes in this room will be locked but there is plenty of storage space.

Note that although the house has central air conditioning, the bedroom on the top floor remains quite warm in the summer months. There is a ceiling fan and a cross breeze off off the back deck.

The house will be fully decorated for Christmas from early December..with greenery on the outside of the house and in the vestibule...a nine foot tree and garlands in the living dining area...a ceiling of snowflakes in the powder room... and another small tree in the master bedroom.

Guest access

Guests will have full private use of the house and a secluded front and back yard. Only selected drawers and cupboards will be locked.

Linda's place was the perfect stopover in Toronto ~ a great city and a beautiful home on a lovely tree-lined street...wish we could've stayed longer & hope to be back. Had a wonderful lunch at Terrroni, dinner at Playa Cabana & ice cream just up the street.

Beautiful house. Beds super comfy, everything clean and very welcoming. Linda was a great host, helping out with parking and super responsive. The neighbourhood is pretty, good local eating places and some lovely independent shops. Subway minutes walk away so really accessible. Highly recommend.

This home is an absolute gem. It was perfect for our girls' night getaway. Linda was a gracious and accommodating host. Her home is stunning and only a short walk to anything you might need in shops, restaurants, etc. That being said, when you are in the home or on the rooftop deck or in the gardens, it is quite private and quiet. The attention to detail in this home is exceptional. We enjoyed everything from the cosy living room to the rooftop deck to the garden oasis. Our stay was everything we hoped for. We will definitely be back!

Just spent a lovely weekend with seven girls at Linda's house. The house itself and décor inside were beautiful! Linda was very accommodating and even showed me the closest restaurants and stores near her house - everything was within walking distance which was convenient. We all slept comfortably and the bathrooms were very spacious.

Linda's Victorian home was completely charming. She was also very responsive to our questions and concerns. Her home was convenient to transportation (though Rosedale station isn't accessible which was a hassle for stroller travel). It was a lovely stay. Terroni Restaurant was also fabulously delicious.

Linda's house is out of a fairytale. It was so beautifully decorated and supplied with everything we needed for my family stay. The neighborhood is scenic and tree-lined and a few steps away from coffee shops, restaurants, brunch and boutique stores. Highly recommend for a staycation or out-of-towners looking for a stunning place to stay.

I am an interior designer and I own a home decor and lifestyle shop in Toronto. I travel frequently to England buying beautiful things for the shop and for my home. My style is a combination of casual and time worn mixed with elegant French antiques and modern accents.
