Listed: Charming and Functional Corktown Cutie Asking Less Than $1M
You’ve heard of following the yellow brick road, but how about opening the yellow-painted door? We invite you to do just that to discover the joys inside newly-listed 27 St. Paul Street in Toronto’s Corktown neighbourhood.
While it’s never advisable to judge a book by its cover, this is a home that can indeed (at least begin to) be sized up from the outside. A blushing lavender exterior is punctuated by big front windows, brick patio stones, tree-cover, and the aforementioned yellow front door.
Enter here, and you’ll discover a charming treasure trove asking $999,000.
Inside, stunning hardwood works its way through the main floor, where an open-concept living and dining room allow for easy, breezy entertaining, even if the appetizers aren’t quite out of the oven yet. High ceilings lend themselves nicely to the bright, well-appointed kitchen, which itself walks out to a rear garden that’s complete with stone and turf accents.
But more on that later.
Upstairs, two sizeable bedrooms await, while a large four-piece bath — complete with both a large window and a skylight — provides the perfect place to wind down in a tub of bubbles at the end of a long day.
The basement of this home tells a different tale than many you may come across in your home hunt. Instead of serving as a rec-room or exercise area, the house’s lower level is accessible via a separate entrance, and is finished with both a kitchen and bathroom setup. A full on in-law suite, the floor can accommodate beyond the immediate needs of the small family living on the main and upper levels.
And indeed, out back, where the aforementioned rear garden awaits, is the lounge space where everyone — in-laws included — can gather to savour the fresh air. Alongside the stunning landscaping, the rear outdoor space is complete with large shed and space for parking.
As far as location goes, 27 St. Paul Street is in the middle of it all, but as the street is set south of Queen East, a more quiet vibe washes over the property itself. Incredible local eateries including Impact Kitchen, Roselle, and Dark Horse Espresso Bar are all within walking distance, while parks, community centres, and even the Distillery District are just a few minute’s jaunt — or a short streetcar ride — away from home.
