From its location to its interior through to its dreamy backyard, 379 Walmer Road is an exquisite home.

Newly listed in the Casa Loma neighbourhood, this 7+1-bed, 6-bath estate sits on a 0.62-acre double lot that backs onto the Nordheimer Ravine.

The lush stretch of bubbling waters and walking paths is, undeniably, a perfect neighbour: calm, inviting, and easy on the eyes.

Described in its listing as an "unparalleled sanctuary," this address boasts the best of many worlds, providing a sweet respite that remains just moments from so much of Toronto's best.

Spadina, Bathurst, and St. Clair West are all just a few steps away, meaning easy access to major downtown, uptown, and cross-town pathways for breezy commuting and exploring. This is without mentioning how the St. Clair West strip is dappled with delightful restaurants, small-owned shops, and conveniences like grocers and the LCBO.

Within quick walking distance are also several parks, plus the beautiful Casa Loma itself.

But all this said, you won't need to leave home to experience lush natural beauty -- this property's backyard is a paradise all on its own, but we'll speak more to that later.

First, we need to explore the abode's interior (and doing so is a treat). A grand staircase meets you at the front door, leading up three levels, across which seven bedrooms and four baths await. Each chamber is its own swoon-worthy retreat, while the primary bed boasts an ensuite to rival a spa.

Back downstairs, multiple living areas and lounge spaces simply beg to be enjoyed while hosting guests; this home is ideal for entertaining.

The gourmet kitchen -- with an adjacent breakfast nook serving picturesque views -- is a perfect place to mix cocktails and serve hors d'oeuvres on a weekend evening. In fact, while that nook is named for breakfast, we imagine it could be dubbed a cocktail corner on Saturdays.

Top-tier appliances, custom cabinets, and a large centre island add to this space's form and function, making for easy food and drink prep, all done in style.

The kitchen and dining area overlooks this home's gorgeous terrace, which itself extends towards the ravine. And with that, we simply can't wait any longer -- we need to step out to this home's backyard.

Our Favourite Thing

You may have guessed it already, but our favourite thing about this estate is its picture-perfect backyard. Is it the way this outdoor oasis is surrounded by lush greenery? Or is it the ravine babbling just down the stone steps? Or maybe it's the inviting and majestic series of dining areas that dapple the decks and patios... likely, we're captivated by a combination of all these elements. We can't imagine a more beautiful urban retreat.

Last but not least, this home's lower level was recently renovated, and now serves as a full apartment with garden walkout access. Whether this space is used as an in-law suite, guest retreat, or income-generating unit, the entire lower floor is as charming and welcoming as they come.

From top to bottom, this estate serves lush opulence -- but you don't need to take our word for it. Instead, you can swoon your way through the home's gallery below.
