Renovated Family Home in Chaplin Estates

More than what meets the eye!  Replicating the feel of a home set on a 40-foot lot, 125 Chaplin Crescent is a fully renovated family home has an extraordinary amount of square footage and unique amenities that truly set it apart.

Prepare to be immediately impressed with the level of finish and astute care this home presents.  The living room is expansive, finished with crown mouldings, a pretty ornamental fireplace and a bay window that further enlarges this principal space. The wall between the living room and dining room was removed by the current owners, allowing for greater interaction, more functional entertaining space, and versatility to the layout.  A walk-out to the tiered deck and beautiful garden space is accessed both from the dining room as well as the kitchen, bringing light into the home from the south-facing exposure on a daily basis.

The kitchen was carefully planned and renovated, now showcasing crisp Caesarstone countertops, stainless steel appliances, a bounty of storage, and a large breakfast bar setting. A pretty bay window with a built-in window seat overlooks the garden, and a wall of pantry cupboards line the west wall.  Barbecue and entertain with ease as this kitchen seamlessly connects to the outdoors.  

The second floor holds more than you might expect from a home of this size. A carefully executed floor plan now holds three excellent bedrooms, two renovated bathrooms, second floor laundry, and a double door linen closet for extra storage space.  The primary bedroom is astounding with king-sized proportions, a huge walk-in closet with customised interiors, and a gorgeous four-piece ensuite with heated floors, a large steam shower and double vanity. 

Without question, the lower level is impressive with the consistent 7’2” ceiling heights, two bedroom or home office spaces, an awesome recreation room, renovated kitchen and three-piece bathroom with heated floors.  This level not only has its own kitchen, but also its own laundry facilities and separate entrance, allowing the next buyer to utilise it as a potential income suite to expediently help pay off the mortgage.  This lower level is not represented to be a legal basement apartment by the current owners nor our team, and buyers are advised to satisfy themselves to the retrofit status and future use of this space. 

The grounds of this property are equally impressive in size and quality.  A long private drive has been gated to allow for a huge outdoor canvas of sport and entertainment. Envision basketball, scooters, and kids learning to ride their bikes on the paved gated driveway, or the large summer gatherings you’ll be able to host on the two-tiered deck with sunny south exposure.  A large weeping willow tree provides a majestic drape of greenery at the edge of the lot, making this back yard ultimately private and serene in the summertime.  Finally, for those looking for a greater connection to green space, this lot has direct access to the Kay Gardener Beltline trails direct from a gate at the back of the garden.  A ramp quickly connects the property to the belt line trails for running, biking and recreation.

Surrounding the home lies the enviable community of Chaplin Estates. Property owners with great pride of ownership are evident on the tree-lined streets. Residents walk easily to Oriole Park Public School, to shops on Yonge Street, the subway line, and quickly connects to top-tier private schools in all directions. 

125 Chaplin Crescent is an impressive and surprising fully renovated home that raises the bar on amenities and finishes. This is a fabulous and cleverly economical opportunity for families seeking this amazing Chaplin Estates location and it is not to be missed.
