Welcome to 236 Bain Avenue
This fabulous detached 3 storey home is located steps from Withrow Park in Riverdale. It sits proudly on the north side of Bain Ave slightly elevated from the street on a 36 x 100ft lot.
On the approach to the home you will notice that the house has 2 addresses. 236A and 236. This home was originally built as a single family home in 1912 but in 1954 the owners converted the home to a legal duplex. 236A brought you to the upper apartment and 236 to the main floor. The front porch offers a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning or a cocktail at the end of the day and converse with the neighbours.
On entering, a grand foyer welcomes you with hardwood floors that carry through to the formal living and dining rooms. The spacious living room boasts a wood burning fireplace and a wonderful bay window. The dining room has a plate rail, another bay window and a passageway to the main floor family room. A renovated kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, a gas range, stainless steel range hood, a quartz countertop with an under mount sink and a vegetable sink. A 4 pc bathroom is tucked away next to the coat closet. The main floor family room boasts heated floors and double glass doors leading to the back patio. Here you will find a private oasis with interlock patio, a kidney shaped heated in ground pool, a pool shed and parking for one car behind the fence.
The second floor has new hardwood floors, 2 bedrooms, a den with double glass doors and a walkout, and a powder room. The master suite on this floor offers another bay window, built in closets, a desk and a 4 pc ensuite bath. The second furnace is located on this floor and the furnace room could be a great place to install a laundry room or expand the powder room to include a shower or both!
The 3rd floor also offers new hardwood floors and is filled with plenty of natural sunlight from a skylight above the staircase as well as another in the renovated 5 pc bath with heated floors. 2 generous bedrooms, both with plenty of closet space, and one with double doors to a walkout to the roof top and views of the park.
The full sized basement is unfinished and offers a separate entrance and good ceiling height. A great opportunity to create a recreation room, potential nanny’s suite or simply plenty of storage space.
This house needs a new family to love it as much as the Sellers have for 22 years.
