Rare Arts and Crafts Bungalow in Bloor West Village
This warmth and peace of this home is immediately felt by all who have ever visited. From the friendly front porch, fireplace, leaded windows, and “OGEE” wood trim throughout, this Architect’s home has been modernized to meet today’s expectation and function whilst respecting its heritage.
From the in-floor heating under all slate flooring, to skylights that open – and close automatically when it rains, to authentic French Doors that open out to a very private garden courtyard, to the “air jet” bath and heritage plumbing fixtures it's all about the details.
The lower level is quality living space – so unlike a basement. Fresh air is supplied (up to 300 cfm) year round, through a Heat Reclaim Ventilator (HRV) which is energy efficient and controls humidity. This air supply is, by separate temperature control, heated from the main boiler, and ducted throughout the lower level, ensuring healthy and comfortable space. The 1200 sq feet of basement also contains a large laundry room, storage room and a full apartment with a separate entrance.
An Enviable Location
14 Fairview Ave is only a short walk to 'main drag' of Bloor West Village. All your shopping needs are met here, with cafes, fresh fruit n' veg stores etc. Bloor West Village is known for its European ambience & small independent shops and restaurants on Bloor St. Enjoy Sunday brunch at the Sunset Grill, a casual evening out at Queen’s Pasta or drop into one of the many coffee shops along the street. An exceptional mingling of big-city convenience and small-town atmosphere. Access to green spaces and water is about as good as it gets in the city with many parks including nearly 400 acres at High Park, just around the corner.
