Pleasantly perched on a leafy street, this brick home just exudes style and good taste.
Right from the front door, you get a sense of the style that is to come. The open concept main floor stretches out with wide, plank-inspired flooring, adding nuance to the decor. The living room is sunny and bright, with ample windows to usher in the natural light. Potlights are placed strategically throughout the main floor- assisting with task-oriented lighting, or allowing you to dim the lights to create softer ambiance.
The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with smartly proportioned prep space and premium appliances; sleek, dark granite countertops present a pleasing contrast against the white cabinetry, which is tied together with a unique backsplash- a statement-making focal point.
A peek-through breakfast bar is a great place to grab a quick snack, help kids with homework while you are cooking dinner, or to chat with guests while you are in the kitchen entertaining. Stainless steel appliances complete the modern look.
Just beyond the kitchen is the dining room, with elegant French doors, leading to the outside. Another nice touch in the dining room is a corner fireplace, which gives a whole new meaning to “comfort food” while dining-in on those chilly winter nights.
Just beyond those French doors is a fenced in yard, with loads of outdoor space, whether you want to entertain, exercise or simply enjoy the breeze with a cup of coffee. Just beyond the backyard gate, there’s an open field with plenty to green space to walk the dog or enjoy a quite stroll.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, plus a versatile loft – any child or gown-up will love. The master bedroom is large and bright, offering a tree-lined view to greet the day. This master retreat is complete with a five-piece ensuite with double vanities and lots of storage which makes this a practical and pretty space to get ready in the morning. The two secondary bedrooms are sizeable and have big windows. A second full bathroom is great for guests or for children.
The lower level features a spacious recreation room with a fireplace – it’s the ultimate blank canvas for you to create space that works for your needs. There you’ll also find separate entrance and roughed-in plumbing for a three-piece bathroom and kitchen, so the possibilities are endless. Do you want a rental suite for income? Perhaps you require extra, separate space for a nanny suite? Or maybe your employment has shifted to remote work and you could use the separate space in order to preserve work/life balance. Or maybe you would like to create more amenities right at home- like a home gym or home theatre?

Being in close proximity to green space is a year-round essential, especially these days when we coveted our time outdoors. 148 Eileen Ave. is well-located to a number of great parks. Lambton Park is under a 15-minute walk away. It expands over 13.5 hectares and has a great playground. It’s also a great way to access the Humber Recreational Trail, if you fancy a bike, trail run or nature walk with the family. Also within walking distance is Smythe Park, which also has loads of trails to choose from- along Black Creek. There are also ball diamonds, a splash pad and an outdoor pool. With all of these nature-loving opportunities right beyond your doorstep, you can really combine urban living with the benefits communing in nature.
Dog owners will like being within walking distance of Woolner Park, that has a large, fenced-in, off-leash area that lets your dogs run and play safely.
Whether or not you need them immediately, being in close proximity to good schools is a smart move as a homeowner. It’s a feature that future buyers always appreciate. This home is well-located to a number of schools, including Lambton Park PS, Rockcliffe Middle School and Runnymede CI.
This incredible home offers the best of both worlds, right under your own roof, combining the ability to customize your space, along with the convenience and ease of turnkey living with many stylish upgrades.
