"There's No Place Like Home"
This is the one you've been waiting for! Welcome to 8 Rathgar Ave, a completely renovated 3 + 1 bedroom bungalow located in the desirable community of Bloordale Gardens in Etobicoke.
The home has been extensively updated inside and out and sits on a 51' x 110' lot. It is ideally located on a quiet tree-lined street where pride of ownership is evident. The double wide driveway can easily hold 5 cars. The attached garage has room for one more vehicle (6 parking in total!) as well as lots of storage in the super convenient mezzanine complete with stair access.
The interior is magazine worthy with an open concept kitchen (with lots of cabinet space!) granite countertops, breakfast bar with beautiful pendant lighting, gas stove, Miele dishwasher, & LG refrigerator.
The living & dining area boast gleaming maple hardwood floors, smooth ceilings with potlights, crown mouldings, and a large picture window with California shutters. A wood-burning fireplace with marble surround and mantel, is a focal point that adds a cozy touch, (not to mention an alternative heat source when hydro power from the grid is interrupted.)
Three bedrooms are situated at the end of the hallway, all with hardwood floors and generous closet space.
The spa-like main bath has just been renovated with quartz vanity, porcelain tiles, shower/tub combo with glass door & Italian bath fixtures.
The completely finished lower level is approximately 1200 sq ft and boasts a new kitchen and bath, huge living / recreation area and a spacious 4th bedroom with walk-in closet. (Use as rental income or for your own enjoyment).
The exterior is beautifully landscaped with patterned concrete and a covered deck with skylights and yet there is still enough green space to play.
