Wellington Village

In the nation's capital, Wellington Village is synonymous with all things hip, trendy, and affluent. Can you blame residents of this uber cool family-focused neighbourhood if they never want to leave? Felicitous timing brings a highly sought after family home to the forefront - will it be yours?

On approach take in the picturesque street scape; turn of the century architecture combines with age old trees and laneway living, perhaps neighbourhood kids are playing a game of pickup … it really is that idyllic. Starting curbside, an interlock pathway offers an exclusive welcome for guests - parking for plenty is handled via a side laneway. Look up; two peaked gables mimic each other for a fairytale facade - soldier-brick detail around original windows and a covered entrance declare there's more charm to come.

Within, original hardwood and high ceilings are instant indicators of historic character. The scale is set with a wide entry hall - ample room for guests to get acquainted and seasonal gear to be shed is a welcome benefit for large groups. Enter the living room, where high ceilings, original windows and arched doorways shape a bright, ready for anything space. The commanding presence of the gas fireplace produces an undeniable focal point - you're always ready for family gatherings or elegant evenings with friends. The asymmetrical footprint is an offbeat touch with a great reward; an easy and open flow into the dining room. With original mouldings and bank of windows, this locale is a proven crowd pleaser.

Off the dining room, a french door leads to productivity central. Find an enviable home office bursting with natural light and inspiration. Easily accessible yet secluded, home work time and domestic admin tasks are effortlessly handled. In the back hall, find a family drop zone, where technology, craft time and daily happenings combine. In the kitchen, an amiable eat-in nook materializes by the bay window - a daily dose of Vitamin C comes with every meal and snack. Ample cabinetry yields space for locally sourced goodies from nearby offerings in Westboro or Parkdale Market. To the delight of all, a three-season sunroom off the back of the kitchen finds infinite use; good reads, memorable chats, morning coffees - the possibilities are endless.

A rare find lies beyond: a large private backyard. Right in the heart of a chic urban neighbourhood, imagine summertime barbecues and an outdoor playzone for your clan. Practical, shaded, spacious - warmer months should always be spent this way.

Back inside off the hall, a large main bath with pedestal sink and chic black and white tile serve this floor and the main floor master bedroom with aplomb.

Peacefully cloistered yet reaping all the dividends of a main floor refuge, the master bedroom boasts a large closet, plus a wall of built-ins. Every shirt, dress, shoe and accessory has a place, along with an entertainment unit, leaving the bedroom clutter-free.

Note the solid the solid oak boxed newel and baluster as you make your way upstairs and enjoy the juxtaposition in design - an airy, open environment unfolds before you. How cool is this? A generous landing and cozy common zone holds all the promise of an uber cool hangout for the kids or whole family. Original hardwood continues under foot, and loft ceilings stake a claim for visual interest. Three bedrooms branch off the central layout - whether one bedroom finds use as a nursery or upstairs office, the choice is yours. There is a feeling of convivial togetherness here that is impossible to replicate. Ingenious storage and quaint nooks in the eaves of the house may find secondary use for playful and creative minds. Fresh updates in the main bathroom offer a spacious, bright place for daily ablutions. The combo of subway tile and extra long vanity with ample storage is a crowd pleaser.

The basement leaves future possibilities open should the need arise for additional living space. Currently, built-in cubbies at the bottom of the stairs are a stroke of genius - hockey gear, tennis rackets, ski poles, paraphernalia from all seasons and interests find a well organized home.

With the buzz of Westboro steps away, an inimitable sense of community and a great roster of schools nearby, home checks off family needs and claims heritage charm to boot. Minutes to downtown, regular walks to the river or adventures on the bike paths - make an appointment to live a beautiful urban lifestyle today.
