The Beaches in Toronto, Canada

We live in a lovely home in "The Beaches" neighbourhood of Toronto.  It is a wonderful place to live...friendly, quiet, safe, transit-accessible, walking distance to many shops and restaurants, close to the boardwalk and beaches. Downtown Toronto's cultural, entertainment, and sports venues are just 15 minutes away.

Our air-conditioned home has an open-concept kitchen, dining, and living area. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a queen-size bed and walk-in shower/spa; the guest bedroom also has a queen-size bed, and a bathroom with a jet-spa tub. The lower level, renovated in 2018, has two bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower.

The house has a deep front porch with armchairs and lounge, plus a very private backyard for relaxing, BBQ's, eating outside, and gardening in the summer.
