Bedford Park Village is a much sought after resedential enclave within the old City of Toronto. It is a quiet, well established, family oriented neighbourhood consisting of peaceful tree-lined streets and solid, well kept single family homes.
The property has undergone a major renovation/expansion creating an up to date open concept overall space with a fantastic modern kitchen/dining area with high ceilings, a large expanse of glass overlooking the rear garden and sliding glass door walkout to the patio.
The area has much to offer by way of amenities, services and conveniences. There are top quality public schools serving all grades, as well as several distinguished private schools and a public library at the corner of Yonge and Lawrence Avenue. From a recreational standpoint there are numerous parks and playgrounds as well as a wading pool, swimming pool, soccer fields, skating rinks and a full arena with indoor rink and organized activities such as figure skating and hockey, located just a few blocks south on Eglinton Avenue. All this plus the Rosedale Golf Club and the Don Valley Golf Club and prestigious private clubs such as The Badminton and Cricket Club and The Granite Club...all within a ten minute drive.
When it comes to public transportation there is excellent bus service on all major roads as well as a subway station at Yonge and Lawrence that will have you downtown in 15-20 minutes. As for shopping, the Bedford Park area is more than blessed with numerous stores offering almost any type of merchandise or service one could possibly desire. The major north/south arteries of Avenue Road and Yonge Street are choc-a-bloc full of friendly and helpful merchants, many of which have been neighbourhood fixtures for years. There are also a wide variety of quality restaurants to match any taste and budget which, should you be so inclined, can easily be walked to…a true urban perk if ever there was one.
As well as being a top quality family home, 230 Cranbrooke Avenue affords ideal proximity to all these superior schools, parks, playgrounds, public transit options, private clubs, gourmet shops and fine dining choices. Only 20 minutes from the city's downtown core and one half hour from the airport, this location presents an ideal urban family setting.
