22 Lakeview Avenue
Loving Life on Lakeview!
Nestled on a street with large boulevard front lawns in the heart of Trinity Bellwoods is this singular home. The eye is immediately drawn to spectacular Victorian details that have been meticulously restored and maintained including plaster archways, metalwork detailing around the fireplace, deep baseboards and crown mouldings, original doors and bannisters and of course, soaring 11 foot ceilings and windows of the classic “oversized” scale.
These features blend seamlessly with a home designed for 21st Century living. The main floor provides a stunning living/dining room for life’s more special events plus a family room and eat-in kitchen for more casual times. The mudroom with powder room that leads to the garden and garage is a unique bonus! Upstairs are three generous bedrooms, a writing room and bathroom updated in a manner consistent with the spirit of the home. The finished lower level expands family living with a fourth bedroom/office, TV room and tons of well organized storage space but the highlight is the wine cellar with original stone walls! The beauty of the attention given to this home is that all of the details “behind the walls” have also been updated with the same attention.
The professionally designed garden is like a little bit of France with a flagstone terrace and walkway, decorative fountain, and many perennial plantings. An irrigation system keeps it very “low maintenance”. The double doors of the garage define the rear of the garden while also providing amazing access to the rebuilt two car garage that has ample space for vehicles plus all the “toys”. An added bonus is a third parking spot alongside the lane that is great for guests.
This haven is in a neighbourhood beloved by families. In catchment for Ossington/Old Orchard Jr PS, Bloor Collegiate, and many daycares so your weekdays are covered. A short walk away are Trinity Bellwoods Park, Ossington with Pilot Coffee and Mandy’s and all the shops of Queen West.
Have you ever considered building a laneway house on the rear portion of your lot? We've got great news for you! At 22 Lakeview Avenue, you've got the potential to build approximately 1,300 sqft (over two floors - main and upper), with the ability to include an optional car garage on the main floor, with vehicle entry off the laneway.
Because of the relatively deep lot here, and a favourable positioning of the existing house on the lot, this property is somewhat rare in that it can support a laneway house up to the maximum allowable build here (1,323 square feet) while still allowing for some limited optional car parking outside the laneway house. With this configuration, the new homeowner could choose to build the laneway house with interior parking, or no interior parking (all living space), while still maintaining some parking on the property, outside the laneway house.

What It's Like
Trinity Bellwoods Park, of course! The park is the hub of the tight-knit community, with a Community Recreation Centre, a dog park, skating rink, tennis courts, and a Farmer’s Market. The community centre has a pool and an indoor gym. Outside, you can have a picnic, take the kids to the playground, or even go fly a kite! It is a rare and wonderful place to enjoy nature and outdoor activities in a busy city.
What You'll Like
What to Expect: Easy commutes and creative energy. Major streets of Dundas, Ossington, Bathurst, and Queen West border the neighbourhood, which means you can always find a nearby bus, streetcar or subway station to get anywhere- fast. Other than painting in the park, there are plenty of places to explore your artistic side. Artscape Youngplace is a non-profit offering programs based on art, culture, and community. The Lower Ossington Theatre is a cozy space for a show, and art galleries add some eye candy to the neighbourhood. For nighttime entertainment, there are plenty patios, bars, pubs, and clubs in Trinity Bellwoods. What NOT to Expect: If you're driving, it can take longer during rush hour, so plan extra time. It takes about twenty minutes to get to the Gardiner Expressway or Lakeshore Boulevard. To get downtown, the subway is the fastest choice. A Day in the Life: Wake up with a view of trees from your Trinity Bellwoods condo. Get a cold coffee at Tampered Press across from the park. Meet your friends at the Farmers Market and pick up some fresh cheeses. Drop off the produce before going to the art gallery for your friends show. After getting lunch, head home and dress up for a night out. First, see a play at Lower Ossington Theatre, then get dinner and drinks at Bellwoods Brewery. Walk home through the park and enjoy a night cap with friends on your condo balcony.In Summary: Trinity Bellwoods is a unique neighbourhood with an artistic community and spectacular greenspace.
