This one-of-a-kind 1907 beauty, sitting pretty on a 63-by-103.5 foot lot on tree-lined Third Street in the heart of Queen’s Park, is the perfect family home.

Step on to the lovely southwest-facing covered veranda, which overlooks a large front lawn and quiet side streets, and you are welcomed into large foyer that opens on to a main floor with 10-foot ceilings, polished wood floors, beautiful mouldings and plenty of windows to let in the light.

This home has been completely renovated, and the interior boasts 3,370 square feet with five bedrooms (with an option for a sixth), 4.5 baths, a new foundation, new drain tile, a basement with an eight-foot ceiling, hot water on demand, and high efficiency radiant hot water heating throughout that is zoned for comfort on all levels.

The living room offers gorgeous wood pocket doors, a gas fireplace with herringbone marble surround and hearth, cast iron radiators and an abundance of natural light to fill the space.

The well-appointed kitchen boasts heated marble floors, marble backsplash, quartz countertop, wood cabinetry, large island with dual zoned wine fridge, stainless steel appliances and a spacious eating area.

Also on the main floor is a large light-filled bedroom with bay window, family room and office, along with two full bathrooms, both with heated marble floors (one has a large soaker tub and the other a glass walk-in shower).

This home is currently being used as two separate living quarters, with an oversized two-bedroom suite covering the second and third storeys. The original banister staircase leading from the main to the second floor, is currently closed off at the ceiling but can be easily opened up to connect the main level to the second level. The second floor, which has a bay window in one of the bedrooms and nine-foot ceilings throughout, has a spacious living area, a kitchen, one full and one half bath and a balcony. There’s even a bonus space, with a staircase leading to a roomy upper loft.

In addition, head downstairs and you’ll find another bedroom with ensuite along with a living area and kitchenette. You also have easy access to loads of additional storage with the 600-square-foot lighted, insulated crawlspace with a concrete floor. The basement also has its own entrance, so if you need a space for the nanny, in-laws or grown children — this is it.

While the second and third storey is currently used as a two-bedroom suite, this home could easily convert to three to four bedrooms on the second storey with the additional loft space on the top floor providing the perfect spot for a play space or media room.

Head out into the private back yard and you’ll find a walk-out patio, as well as another patio and beautiful carport (which is currently being used as a covered entertaining space, complete with lighting, wet bar and gas barbecue hookup), all surrounded by mature trees. You will also enjoy the motorized sliding gate into the carport. The yard wraps around the house and offers perfect spots for gardening — and an ideal south-facing exposure to grow veggies.

This home — in one of the most coveted neighbourhoods in the city and within walking distance to nearby Tipperary Park, Queen’s Park, schools, shops and services — has it all. It is also just a short stroll to Columbia Street SkyTrain. This home’s spacious unique layout provides a flexible space for the whole family, with the option of a mortgage helper, plus a nanny suite or private quarters for the teens.
