Just-Listed High Park House Offers Perfect Cottage-in-the-City Vibes


A one-of-a-kind High Park home — located just across the iconic park’s pond at 86 Ellis Avenue — brings cottage vibes to the heart of Toronto. 

Solving all the fresh air needs for its future homebuyer, the dreamy property has been listed for $1,899,000. 

Sitting in one of Toronto’s most beautiful settings, the charming home is located right on Catfish Pond in Rennie Park. It shines in the outdoor space department in a way that soothes the soul, and is a complete rarity in Toronto. Not to mention, High Park’s Grenadier Pond is less than a block away.

The detached, three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is surrounded by nature and serene views, best enjoyed from a cozy veranda or on beautiful decks overlooking the water…. or in the brand new canoe you just bought.

The 1100-1500-square-foot house features bright and open spaces throughout. It could use a minor renovation in the eyes of some, while others may opt to live with some of its country home-like charm.

Talking points of the country-like home include a basement walk-out right to the pond, a large kitchen, and an upper deck. 

This piece of High Park paradise is especially appreciated after an endless lockdown and collective craving for more green space. It’s the perfect cottage retreat, minus the two-hour commute (or any commute at all).
