The Action


58A Oriole Rd Toronto

About 30 buyers viewed this three-storey townhouse near Upper Canada College. However, it took some time to find a buyer unfazed by the fact the fenced-in backyard is situated on the other side of the driveway.

What they got

In 2003, a builder constructed four semi-detached, brick and stone houses, including this one on a 20-by-173-foot lot. This property combines a variety of luxuries, such as ten-foot ceilings on the main floor, five bathrooms, a central vacuum system and a premium double garage accessed via the lower level recreation room. The open living and dining area has a sense of formality decorated with wainscoting and crown mouldings, while the combined kitchen and family room is more casual with an island, a gas fireplace and French doors to a Juliet balcony. The second floor master retreat was outfitted with nine-foot ceilings, an electric fireplace and his-and-her closets, as well a seven-piece bathroom and another Juliet balcony. The third floor houses an open, sky-lit den and two bedrooms, both with private four-piece bathrooms, one with a walk-in closet and the other with a deck.

The Agent’s Take: “It was a wonderful, beautiful town home … located between Forest Hill and Yonge and St. Clair,” says agent Elli Davis. “It was on three levels – plus a lower level – and it had a double car garage attached, plus a very unique situation where they also have two exterior parking spaces … and they had a garden.”
