Wellwood Avenue is a one block long street that is Hillcrest Village’s little treasure. Off the main traffic routes through the community, Wellwood is an old-fashioned family street, with only twenty houses, where children of all ages play outside like we used to when we were young. One resident attests to this and says “our street is special… with minimal traffic…we have the best of both worlds living a short stroll to St Clair”.
12 Wellwood is a deceptive house, appearing as a little cottage and unfolding into 2,400 square feet of living space plus an enormous basement with a family room and a spa bathroom with an infrared sauna. This beautiful 4-bedroom home was built in 1917 and updated by the present owner with a focus on environmentally sustainable changes.
Comfortably large front foyer and coat closet makes you feel lucky because not every house has one of these. Double glass doors lead into the living room featuring large south facing windows and an airtight wood burning fireplace. The dining room has often held sit down meals for 18 people. Tucked in beside the dining room is a large office to accommodate an even more popular work from home space.
The kitchen has a large west facing window, white bead board cupboards topped with a custom made concrete countertop. As you move further down the central hallway you will discover three good sized bedrooms, one with an en-suite 3-piece bathroom.
Upstairs is the pearl of the house. A 650 square foot master bedroom suite with 2 large walk-in closets, a dressing area and a four-piece bathroom. There are three skylights and windows on four walls streaming light where you can get away to relax.
The street has a strong community — not a nosy community. As one resident proudly says “if you are lucky enough to live on Wellwood you realize there is no better place to live in Toronto.” The children all benefit from the physical safety of the street, the constant presence of an adult when the kids are out and a warm and happy group of residents.
The best things about 12 Wellwood is its gracious, sun-filled space with lots of storage and its location on one of the most coveted streets in the area – or that is what every resident on this street would tell you without exception.
