Open House: Beautiful Beaches cottage for $2M

Jul 5 2016, 6:10 pm

There’s a reason The Beaches is one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in Toronto.

And this house shows why.

The former Beaches park keeper’s residence, circa 1897, at 44 Munro Park is an absolute stunner. It has the whole cottage-in-the-city feel down to a laid-pack science, complete with wraparound porch and private garden.

Oh, not to mention this is the view from the end of your short street:

Of course, this is 2016. Which means that in the 120 years since the park keeper moved in the house has had a few upgrades, namely a master bedroom addition, bay windows, an upgraded kitchen, hardwood floors, a balcony, and bathrooms that look like they’re out of House & Home.

Let the drooling begin.
