Sometimes, you stumble upon a home that simply strikes awe. You see it once, and then can't stop thinking about how it would feel to live your days with this being your place to land.

We imagine that's how you'll feel about 28 Bracken Avenue.

This heritage gem is steeped in history, and today stands to prove that historical charm and contemporary luxury can blend in the most beautiful of ways.

Nestled in The Beaches, one of Toronto's most sought-after neighbourhoods, this exquisite estate is poised and ready to be snapped up by a most discerning buyer.

On arrival to the property, you'll find the exterior hints at the grandeur that's waiting within. A heritage home at its core, the dwelling has been revitalized with the highest quality finishes, making it a standout on the street.

Once inside, you're greeted by welcoming, light-filled living spaces. Each room, defined by elegant arched doorways, leads seamlessly into the next, while divine details wait to be discovered, all throughout.

The heart of this home is undoubtedly its magazine-worthy kitchen. Designed with chef types and entertainers in mind, it features a custom walk-in fridge, an expansive centre island, and ample storage. The result is a space that's as functional as it is beautiful.

Up on the second floor, the primary suite stands out as a luxurious, private retreat. This personal sanctuary exudes a hotel-like ambiance, with every detail carefully crafted to invite a sense of serenity. Adjacent is a large second bedroom, which features a hidden games room and a walk-in closet, covering the bases for both play and additional storage space. Rounding out this level are a third bedroom-meets-office, a laundry room, and a spa-like bath (which promises to elevate everyday routines into indulgent rituals).

The third floor continues to impress with its high ceilings and natural light, courtesy of a soaring skylight. On this level are two more spacious bedrooms, plus a shared bath, ideal for visiting family or guests.


The lower level proves that no part of this abode has been overlooked. Here, high ceilings soar above a golf-simulator-meets-theatre room, suited to more active and more passive entertainment. A sixth bedroom and an exercise room will also be found on this level. But all this said, the custom spa — featuring a sauna and a backlit onyx steam room — is the true showstopper.


Our Favourite Thing

Our favourite thing about 28 Bracken is the seamless integration of luxury and comfort, all throughout the home. From the custom kitchen and hidden games room to the backlit onyx steam room, every detail has been thoughtfully considered to create a residence that is beautiful, yes, but also truly livable. The blend of historical charm with modern upgrades offers a living experience that is second to none.


Outside, a fenced yard provides a perfect place for children to play, while the electric gated cobblestone driveway and two-car garage serve both security and convenience. The fully landscaped grounds — complete with heated brick and lush garden beds — create a serene and inviting outdoor retreat that can be enjoyed even into the cooler seasons.

Indeed, from its old soul to its fresh-faced demeanour, 28 Bracken is in a league of its own.
