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.

Note:The laundry facilities are located in a very basic basement utility area. Access through an exterior basement door.

Either myself or a property manager will be close by and available to answer questions or assist with any problems by telephone or email 24 hours a day.

Linda's house is absolutely gorgeous! It was the perfect place for my bridal party to get ready- beautifully decorated, comfortable, and in a fantastic location. Linda was so helpful from start to finish, even answering some of our last minute questions at check in! An absolutely lovely stay, I'd highly recommend it.

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.
