The Details

Whimsical Grandeur

Rooted in a storied past yet exuberantly modern, this humbly audacious Playter residence exudes timeless, quiet luxury. Steeped in the historical charm of 1913, this Jackman 4-bedroom masterpiece, sprawling over 2,600 square feet, blends mid-century design elements with the playful spirit of the golden years. A family home boldly defying tradition, it embraces an open, light-filled flow, inviting Instagram-ready rooms & fashion-forward design selections, including artful walls, statement fixtures & an architecturally inviting staircase. Generous room sizes, wide open hallways, stained glass windows & memorable nooks infuse whimsical grandeur. Ascend to the 3rd floor and discover a luxurious retreat reminiscent of the Country Club era crowned with a dressing room, working gas fireplace, custom built-ins, ensuite & four-way light. Finally, the expansive lower level reveals an additional 980+ square feet fit for a considerable recreation space with 7″1″ ceilings, a separate entrance and an optional third washroom!

Bonuses: Jackman School District, gorgeously landscaped, has a private backyard and gardens, an accessible mutual drive, a 200-square-foot detached garage, and a possible 656-square-foot 2-story Garden Suite.

Your home should tell a story of who you are and be a collection of what you love.

Welcome To
Playter Estates

This neighbourhood, Toronto’s coveted Playter Estates, brims with warmth, character, and a community spirit that genuinely captures what it means to call a place home. This locale’s diverse mix of families, young professionals, and long-time residents contribute to a vibrant, multigenerational community. Neighbourly spirit is evident in every corner, from welcoming smiles on the sidewalk to enthusiastic participation in local events.

When it comes to amenities, the local offerings are second to none. A short stroll brings you to various local shops, restaurants, and parks. Your grocer is just down the road for everyday needs, while weekend farmer’s markets provide fresh, local produce. And for those days when cooking seems less appealing, a delightful assortment of restaurants and cafés offer everything from your morning coffee to globally inspired cuisine. Some local favourites include Pizza Libretto, Il Fornello, Mezes and Katsu Japanese.

Embrace the family-friendly neighbourhood while exploring the vibrant Danforth Village, just minutes away on foot. Its eclectic mix of boutiques, coffee shops, and entertainment venues embodies the city living at its essence. Grab a top-notch brew at Oliver Coffee Bar or Monopol Cafe. Or, while on foot, stop by The Night Baker, COBs Bread, or Serano Bakery for weekend cinnamon buns or freshly baked scones. And if you’re in the mood to stay out late, The Danforth Music Hall and The Forth Live Stage are walkable to and from your doorstep!

Don’t forget the green spaces, where kids can run free, and adults can kick back with a book and a savoury lunch to go! With the Don River Valley Park and Brick Works Park close by, residents enjoy a network of trails and sports fields perfect for sunny days for families and those with four-legged friends!

Best of all, this neighbourhood provides easy access to downtown Toronto. Whether commuting to work, catching a game or concert at the Rogers Centre, or enjoying an evening at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, the city’s cultural meca is just a quick taxi ride or a handful of subway stops from your doorstep!
