Welcome to 350A Blackthorn Avenue. A striking 3-storey brick semi-detached home offering 1,600 sq. ft. of living space. Conveniently located in the neighborhood of Keelesdale-Eglinton West.
This home offers 3+1 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, an open-concept living-dining and kitchen area with granite counters, and a walkout to a professionally landscaped backyard. The home has beautiful hardwood floors throughout and a gorgeous hardwood staircase. Modern details such as pot lights and oversize windows allow for plenty of natural light. The kitchen features all stainless-steel appliances (range-hood May 2022) and gorgeous granite counters, with dark wood cabinetry. There is ample space to fit a kitchen table and chairs. There is also easy access to entertain seamlessly from the kitchen to the backyard.
The second floor offers 2 spacious, light-filled bedrooms, each with a closet, and a shared 4-piece bathroom. The third floor hosts a large west-facing principal bedroom and 4-piece ensuite, along with floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinetry (IKEA 2019) for ample storage. A bonus room/den was renovated by the current owners to provide an in-home office space for ease of working from home.
The lower level was fully renovated in 2021 and features a laundry area (new washer June 2022) and a new furnace (2020) as well as direct access to the garage. The front and rear of the property were professionally hard-landscaped for added appeal and low maintenance in 2020 (backyard) and 2021 (driveway). A rear patio and custom deck is perfect to host family and friends in the summer months.
A bit about the neighborhood: Keelesdale-Eglinton West
A quieter yet vibrant community, with sprawling parks, interesting topography, great shops/restaurants, a large European population (mostly Portuguese & Italian), and a growing multicultural population, which is bringing growth, change & excitement to this neighborhood. While many properties are still affordable in this neighborhood, the opening of the Eglinton LRT will increase the appeal and property values once it’s up and running! Would-be condo buyers are able to get into the housing market in this pocket of the city.
Most homes are 2 or 3 bedrooms and residents are a wonderful mix of old-world/new families. It’s a great place to raise a family, and experience a slower-paced lifestyle that is very much connected to nature, yet you will continue to have easy access to all the great amenities that Toronto has to offer.
Keelesdale is unique, with hilly parts and great views, as it is close to multiple green spaces. Keelesdale Park is a hub of indoor & outdoor activity with York Recreation Centre (opened in 2017), an outdoor baseball diamond. Or head south to Earlscourt Park where Joseph J. Piccininni Community Centre is located. Looking for a library nearby? Just a 10-minute walk to Evelyn Gregory Branch (named after a renowned Toronto Librarian).
Enjoy an authentic Portuguese meal at a local Churrasquiera or opt for some delicious homestyle pasta in Corso Italia; the original ‘Little Italy’ of Toronto! Stay connected by joining local groups. ‘Keelesdale Neighbourhood Group’ on Facebook is a great way to see what’s going on, and engage with neighbours! Access to Black Creek Drive and Allen Road leading you up the 400/401 are a short drive away for when you crave to get out of the city. Keelesdale is growing, evolving, and changing.
