As the saying goes: West is Best.

Markland Wood, Toronto's most westerly neighbourhood, is a peaceful pocket characterized by endearing one and two-storey homes, friendly neighbours, and lush greenery.

In the heart of this sought after community lies 8 Winsdale Road. The charming woodland bungalow has just hit the market for $1.6M, offering one lucky buyer the chance to move into "the woods."

Sprawling parks -- Centennial, Bloordale North, and Fleetwood, to name a few -- and winding creeks, including Etobicoke, Renforth, and Elmcrest, encircle the property.

But, despite its serene setting, the home is less than a 10-minute walk from bustling Bloor Street West. Conveniences like Loblaws, Shoppers, and the LCBO are within a five-minute drive, as are the shops of Cloverdale Mall.

Up the property's front pathway and through the home's heated foyer, the spacious abode has been lovingly updated and meticulously maintained. Hardwood floors and crown mouldings abound, offering an air of understated luxury.

The light-filled living room, with its ornate fireplace, flows into the dining room for easy entertaining. Beneath a skylight, the gourmet kitchen features modern finishes, stainless steel appliances, and quartz countertops. There's a separate breakfast and bar area, complete with a beverage fridge.

Each of the three cozy bedrooms comes complete with a roomy closet -- with organizers -- and large windows. The bay window in the east-facing primary bed welcomes you to peacefully wake up with the sun.

Our Favourite Thing

Wining and dining under the stars, cozying up around the fire, and barbecuing to your heart's (and stomach's) content, the backyard is the perfect place for warm-weather entertaining. Thanks to a retractable awning, even rainy days won't stop you from grilling.  

The highlight of the property is the backyard oasis. Shaded by mature trees and surrounded by perennial gardens, the retreat boasts an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, and a pergola.

Inside and out, 8 Winsdale Road is a charming abode housing a treasure trove of coveted features, amenities, and details. This truly exceptional home is not to be missed.
