On an avenue of remarkable homes, this one is extraordinary. The St. Clair Heritage District is known for the architectural significance and distinctive beauty of its houses and 129 St. Clair Avenue, constructed in 1928, is a truly exceptional example of heritage preservation at its finest. Built in the Tudor Revival style, this home retains its original charm and character details, right down to the original servant’s bell system! The main floor features a large foyer with original oak panelling, oak staircase, and a very spacious living room with bay window, stunning fireplace with original hand carved oak mantelpiece, and bookshelves.
Everything has been meticulously preserved, including the brass window and door hardware and lattice and stained-glass windows. Uniquely styled French doors lead to the oak panelled dining room, featuring a second bay window and window seat, and art nouveau wall sconces. Step through another set of French doors into the light-filled sunroom, a cozy hideaway overlooking the back garden, with original ceramic tile floor and walk out to the covered back porch. The kitchen has been carefully updated for today’s cook, but retains the feel of the rest of the home, and has an eat-in breakfast area and island for morning coffee. The second floor offers four large bedrooms, laundry, a family bath and ensuite bath adjoining the master bedroom. The bathrooms are remarkable in that they have both been preserved with original ceramic tiles, pedestal sinks, and tubs. Stunning and totally unique. The third floor offers three additional bedrooms and a full bathroom. The basement in-law suite has unusually high ceilings and features a kitchen, living area, bathroom and bedroom. Outside is a large deck, and a brick two-car garage with adjoining garden shed. There are plenty of mature trees on the property and in the surrounding neighbourhood offering shade and privacy. A unique opportunity to own a beautifully preserved piece of our architectural heritage.
