About 1063 Avenue Road
If these walls could talk… You would be in stitches! Introducing the iconic home that played a very special part in the creation of one of the most prized television shows in Canadian history, SCTV. Welcome to 1063 Avenue Road, a meticulously preserved 3 bedroom detached two storey home in the heart of Toronto’s Allenby neighbourhood. This home has been owned by the same owners since the late 1950s and still boasts its original charm. Many important updates have been completed over the last few years including a new roof, updated pipes and drains, removal of the knob and tube wiring, updated boiler and water heating system and much more.
When you step into the back yard, the first thing that you will notice is the tranquil setting. Professionally landscaped with a superb rock garden, mature trees and serene waterfall, a zen-like experience awaits.
If you are in need of storage, 1063 Avenue Road has you covered; with a large single car detached garage.
Situated just a few short steps to the ‘soon-to-be’ completed Elginton Crosstown LRT and superb restaurants, shops and cafes. Truly a treasure in the heart of one of Toronto’s best neighbourhoods.
Let’s chat about the area - Lawrence Park
The quiet residential neighbourhood of Lawrence Park South takes up an odd-shaped portion of the city just north of the midtown area.
It is bounded roughly by Lawrence Avenue West and Coldstream Avenue to the north, Eglinton Avenue West, Briar Hill Avenue and Blythwood Road to the south, Proudfoot Avenue, Latimer Avenue and Castlewood Road to the west and Avenue Road, Yonge Street and an area midway between Mount Pleasant Road and Bayview Avenue to the east.
The tranquil area features a number of green spaces, including Lytton Park, Chatsworth Ravine, Lawrence Park, Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens and Blythwood Ravine Park.
Schools in the area include Blythwood Junior Public School, Allenby Junior Public School, John Ross Robertson Junior Public School, Glenview Senior Public School, Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute and the private Havergal College.
The neighbourhood is light on retail compared to most others, with even Yonge Street offering fewer retail options than further north or south. Lawrence station on the Yonge subway line is located just north of the neighbourhood, with other transit options including buses along Yonge, Avenue, Mount Pleasant, Lawrence and Eglinton. The Eglinton bus will eventually be replaced by the Crosstown LRT.
