Radiant on Riverdale!

This beautiful Victorian home on picturesque Riverdale Avenue has been rebuilt back to the bricks + a 4 level addition added. The result is a stunning 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home with a legal 1 bedroom basement suite & garage parking for 2 cars. Perfection!

Located only 12 doors from Riverdale Park, there is never a shortage of activities to keep you busy – tennis courts, a running track, swimming pool, playgrounds and a bridge giving you direct access to Cabbagetown & Riverdale Farm. One of the best kept secrets in the city is the hill into the park – fantastic city skyline views & sunsets, it is sure to delight the whole family.

This home is located in the highly coveted Withrow JPS, Riverdale CI school district & 5 minute walk to Montcrest School.

Fantastically convenient transit – grab one of two streetcars direct to downtown or to the subway on the Danforth. Bike along the Don River trail away from the traffic.

Walk around the corner to get your coffee at the Rooster, enjoy numerous gourmet shops on Gerrard, Queen and the Danforth! Broadview Hotel, Soul Chocolate, Good Cheese, Wynona Cafe, Mimi’s, Bonjour Brioche, Tabule … too numerous to list here!

Room Descriptions

The open-concept main floor space with 9 ft ceilings is perfect for entertaining. The architectural staircase is a work of art – a real conversation piece. Gather around the 8 ft quartz kitchen island and admire the views at every angle. The kitchen boasts Viking & Sub Zero appliances and custom cabinetry at every turn. Lovely living room with gas fireplace & built-in surround can be kept cozy by closing the oversized pocket doors. Meander from the main floor family room out to the large cedar deck.

The very unique 2nd-floor bedroom with wrap around windows, walk-in closet & ensuite bath is ideal for those needing their own space. The additional 2 bedrooms on this level are spacious both with double closets, so rare!

Positively dreamy 3rd floor primary retreat with 9 ft ceilings, a gas fireplace, gorgeous built-in shelving & drawers + ensuite with double sinks, tankless Toto dual flush & oversized quartz shower. Facing south – a wall of glass with French doors leading to a covered balcony overlooking the professionally landscaped yard.

Completely retrofitted, legal, one bedroom basement apartment has 7ft ceilings, in-floor radiant heating & a separate side entrance. 21 Riverdale is (very smartly!) insulated for sound in shared wall & floor spaces.
