Exquisite Modern Luxury Blended with Practical Design

Welcome to this stunning semi-detached home at 111 Boston Avenue, meticulously renovated in 2019 to blend modern luxury with practical design. Located steps from Queen Street, this 3-storey brick home offers ample space for comfortable living, with extensive renovations including a third-storey addition, a rear extension, and underpinning of the lower level. 

As you step inside, you’ll be greeted by an inviting open-concept main floor featuring soaring 9-foot ceilings and French white-oak centre-core hardwood flooring throughout. The spacious living room, centred around a fireplace and accentuated by an enlarged window cavity, offers a welcoming ambiance. Adjacent to the living room, the generous dining area boasts continuous hardwood flooring, providing a seamless flow throughout the space.

The heart of the home lies in the meticulously designed kitchen, which features a custom oversized island, top-of-the-line appliances, and a built-in workstation. The custom kitchen includes dovetail drawers and premium stainless steel appliances along with a wall of cabinets along the party wall designed for added storage. Toward the rear of the home, a sizeable family room is anchored by a custom stone mantle and a built-in gas fireplace. With ample room for comfortable seating and large windows providing natural light, this family room is the perfect place to create lasting memories with loved ones. Beyond the family room is a large walkout terrace, offering an extension of the living space and a seamless transition to outdoor enjoyment. This floor is serviced by a powder room located at the base of the stairs.

The second floor features three generously sized bedrooms, each offering comfort and tranquillity. The front bedroom includes a walkout to a west-facing balcony, providing a serene retreat to enjoy the outdoors. Conveniently located on this floor, the laundry room is equipped with a front-loading washer and dryer and built-in storage shelving. A well-appointed six-piece washroom serves the needs of the second-floor residents with style and functionality. Custom shelving and double-hanging closet bars enhance the usability of each bedroom closet on this floor.

Ascend to the third floor, where the primary retreat awaits, offering a luxurious sanctuary for relaxation. This spacious retreat features a king-sized bedroom, a seating area with a walkout to an east-facing terrace, and generous eight-foot ceilings throughout. A full walk-in closet, lined with built-in shelves and cabinetry, provides ample storage space for clothing and accessories. The masterfully designed five-piece ensuite washroom boasts a spa-like shower and a freestanding soaking tub, creating a serene oasis. In winter, you can glimpse the CN Tower, a reminder of the urban lifestyle at your doorstep.

The lower level has been ingeniously transformed into a separately metered two-bedroom rental unit, providing an excellent opportunity for additional income. With an eight-foot ceiling height and waterproof faux wood flooring throughout, this space exudes comfort and functionality. The oversized kitchen features stone counters, full-size appliances, and a kitchen island, offering a stylish and functional space for culinary pursuits. Pot lights throughout illuminate the space, creating a warm and inviting ambiance. Two adequately sized bedrooms, complete with built-in closet space and above-grade windows, offer comfort and privacy for residents. A three-piece washroom, along with a large mechanical room adjacent but separate from the unit, completes the lower level, providing convenience, functionality, and enhanced safety for all residents of the home. Per the Ontario Building Code, the permit required for the basement floor, ceiling and wall assemblies to meet FRR (Fire Resistance Rating)  and STC (Sound Transmission Class) ratings per Part 9 or Part 11 of the Building Code. This was achieved using fire and sound-dampening caulking to seal all penetrations, along with resilient channel, Type X drywall, and safe-and-sound insulation. The result is exceptional soundproofing, ensuring complete quietness between the two separate dwelling units.

The property features separately metered utilities and includes two furnaces and air conditioning units (one with a dedicated remote-controlled unit in the primary suite). Dual sump pumps with an alarm ensure efficient drainage and protection against water damage, while a high-efficiency tankless hot water system provides on-demand hot water, contributing to energy savings and comfort. Accessible via the laneway, the property boasts convenient two-car parking.

This home surpasses its competitors in quality and design, truly defining the term turn-key.
