Inside a $2.849 million home with a huge backyard that’s moments from the beach

In a quiet section of Toronto’s east end, once known for turn-of-the-century holiday-makers, 25 Kingswood Rd. is at the heart of the Balmy Beach Conservation District — an area once known for the Edwardian era Scarboro Beach and Victoria Park Amusement Parks.

The historic tree-lined neighbourhood of Kingswood South is a moment’s stroll to the village-like setting of Queen Street East, the Beaches and R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant, a remarkable example of art deco architecture that overlooks Lake Ontario.

Ensuring the home’s original charm remained intact, 25 Kingswood Rd. was carefully updated in 2013 and is now on the market for $2.849 million. It offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a beautiful backyard.

Enter through the front hall and pass through a set of antique parlour doors into the living room — like most of the doors, they’re an original feature of this property.

Notice the glorious amount of sunlight that streams through the large bay window. Offering sun-dappled street views makes it a favourite feature of this picturesque room.

The honey-toned hardwood floors and modernized gas fireplace, graced by a period-appropriate mantelpiece, add to this room’s allure, making it a welcoming spot to come home to.

The deep expanses of this lot are such an added delight — there’s just so much space!
