Designated as a heritage property, 120 Bedford Rd. was built in 1897 and was once a lavish Victorian family home. Since then, it’s transformed into four exclusive condo units that perfectly embody this enclave’s charming personality.
When you visualize the Annex, ornate century-old mansions with front gardens in bloom along tree-lined avenues come to mind — and nothing says the Annex quite like Bedford Road.
Surrounded by history, academia and culture, the Annex is well-known for its creative and exciting atmosphere and offers shopping, entertainment and dining experiences in every direction.
Blending the pleasures of residing in a house with the ease of condo-style living, 2-120 Bedford Rd. has the best of both worlds. Thoughtfully renovated through 2020 and 2021 and listed at $1.68 million, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom ground floor suite has been tastefully brought into the 21st century while maintaining much of its Victorian beauty.
A pendant lantern illuminates the classic exterior of the front entrance, while the interior opens onto a light-filled foyer, accentuated by marble-inspired flooring and a stained glass window.
Set away from the rest of the suite, discover the primary bedroom at the front of the house. Notice the exquisite hardwood floors and Victorian bay window. The bevelled glass details act as rainbow-filled prisms of light that dance across the room on sunny days.
Not only does this spacious room offer privacy, but it also features an ensuite bathroom with a remarkable onyx accent wall.
Moving to the central part of the home, the kitchen offers plenty of storage tucked into custom millwork cabinets and cupboards. The gold accented hardware adds a pop of glam to this fresh cooking space.
The dining room provides a lovely spot for family mealtime or coffee dates with friends. Pull open the double doors for a nice breeze and peaceful backyard views.
Custom built-ins, such as a wine rack and spotlit shelves, surround the antique fireplace and add a cozy yet elegant ambiance to the living room.
Like the rest of this 19th-century home, the second bedroom features 10-foot tall ceilings and. There’s also a convenient second bathroom with a split entry.
Part of what makes this unit so fabulous is the private back terrace. Surrounded by lush greenery and practically designed for entertaining, this slice of backyard heaven is an ideal spot to enjoy good weather and great company.
Where a carriage house likely once stood is now a covered parking spot and storage space for residents, making street parking a concern of the past.
