Looking for the best of both worlds? If yes, 38 Queens Drive, new to the market in the Weston neighbourhood, is prepared to deliver.

The vintage Victorian boasts three beds, two baths, and carefully-crafted upgrades in all the right places. The result is a home that maintains its century-old charm while boasting a fresh, airy essence.

In short, it's the urban cottage of your dreams.

Located on the quaint and quiet Queens Drive, this property sits just north of Lawrence Avenue West between Jane Street and Weston Road.

The location is convenient, with an array of shops, restaurants, and cafes -- including neighbourhood favourite Black Cat Espresso -- just around the corner. The Weston GO and UP Express station is only a few steps away, and TTC stops along Lawrence make for easy trips across town.

What's more, several nearby parks -- Cruickshank, Weston Lions, and Raymore -- plus the Upwood Greenbelt and Weston Golf and Country Club mean that a stroll amongst nature (or a day on the green) is never far away.

But, as you'll soon discover, to enjoy the outdoors you won't even need to leave this property's borders -- its impressive backyard considered.

First, though, let's tour the home. Up the front porch and through the welcoming red door, the abode greets you with a cozy front entry providing direct access to the living room on one side, and the dedicated dining room on the other. Perfect for entertaining, both of these spaces boast large windows and gorgeous hardwood flooring.

The kitchen, complete with an island, is also friendly for hosting. Bar seating along the island invites friends to gather for drinks and bites while dinner's finishing touches are completed.


Upstairs are three bedrooms; the primary blends a zen look with cottage-inspired style, making for a most relaxing escape. Also on the upper level you'll find an office space, complete with a walkout to the porch roof (adorned with another red door, no less).

Our Favourite Thing

Sprawling and sweet, this home's backyard boasts both lawn and patio to complement the natural perennial garden, which itself is home to several plum and apple trees. At the back of the lot waits a fully powered and insulated artist's studio, perfect for the aspiring painter or woodworker. We can imagine summer days spent hobbying with the studio door open, followed by an evening barbecue on the patio.

All in all, this charming home serves 1,800 sq. ft of living space atop a 55x105 lot -- the perfect amount of space for a family to live, grow, and play.

"It’s not often a home so quaint and special hits the market in Toronto," says listing agent Anita Merlo. "This vintage classic is a dream.”
