Welcome to beautiful Old Glenridge
Possibly the most iconic character home neighbourhood in the city, you will love the lifestyle and surrounding amenities that this location provides.
25 Glenridge Avenue is a stately home with its brick and stone exterior, leaded glass windows, slate tiled roof and attractively landscaped front driveway area. Built in the 1930s, the exterior of the home has been kept to its original character while the interior has been reimagined to a more modern, minimalist aesthetic.
The interlock driveway can accommodate 5 cars and is surrounded by mature gardens with low maintenance perennials and ivy ground cover. A pergola fence obscures what was once used as the garage (more on that later) with access around the side to the lovely backyard.
Step inside and you’ll immediately see how special and unique this home is. On your right is a generously proportioned living room (nearly 20’ long) with a fireplace with tiled surround, hardwood floors and windows bringing in morning light from the dining room and evening sun from the front. At the end of the living room you’ll find a reading nook which makes a great office space or reading room.
The fully renovated kitchen includes granite counters, modern high gloss white cabinets and quality appliances included (including the Electrolux induction oven). The formal dining room is a great space and includes a bank of cabinetry, same as in the kitchen, providing additional storage space if required. And who doesn’t want more storage!?
The kitchen sink opening was widened up and looks out to the main floor family room addition which has a gas fireplace, newly installed sliding doors to the yard and new roof and sheathing in 2019. The view from the kitchen sink through the family room and the new patio door really opens the space up.
What was formerly a garage was transformed many years ago into useable living space, currently used as a playroom but could accommodate a home business, office, studio or whatever you envision. Note: there is a powder room on this floor too.
Stairs with stylish carpet lead upstairs where you’ll find 3 bedrooms, all a comfortable size. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and access to the ensuite bathroom. A unique set-up, the bathroom has 6 pieces in total which is split into 2 sections. On one side is a 4 piece with tub/shower, vanity and toilet while on the other side you’ll find a soaker tub and additional vanity.
The basement level was renovated in 2015 and provides even more space centred around a nicely sized rec room. Along the back wall you’ll find a bright & clean laundry room, 3 piece bathroom with shower and an awesome pantry with built-in shelving ready for you to fill up!
A big part of any property is the lifestyle and surrounding amenities that you as the homeowner, can enjoy. One of the big features of the Old Glenridge community is the easy access to the downtown core. Imagine strolling downtown to grab a bite to eat and watch an Ice Dogs game or a concert at the Performing Arts Centre. Restaurants, pubs, cafes, shops and more are all within strolling distance. If you’re a fan of a good hike, walk back through the neighbourhood and you’ll find Burgoyne Woods complete with trails, picnic areas, forest area and a great dog park too!
