This detached and well-maintained two-storey presents an opportunity to live in a prestigious North York neighborhood for less than most of the neighboring, custom-built homes cost.
“This has been the perfect home to raise our children in, but now we are empty nesters, the space is too large for us,” says homeowner Lydie Brawer. “The location of our home is exceptional: close to the subway, many good schools, retailers, groceries and doctor offices.
“The neighborhood is well established with many mature trees lining the streets. This is a very family-friendly and safe community. We love it so much that we intend to move nearby, ”says Brawer.
The residence is a short drive to two hospitals, Yorkdale Shopping Center, and access to Hwy. 401.
