With a Walk Score of 88, this home is in a walkers' paradise: it's just steps away from Bloor Street West shops and subway access, and is within easy walking distance from High Park and lakefront parkland. It is in the catchment area for top rated elementary and secondary schools (Swansea PS and Humberside CI). Deforest Road also has steps built into the end of the cul-de-sac that lead down to Willard Gardens Parkette, which has a recently renovated children's playground. The large, covered front veranda invites you through a new front door into a front foyer with a rare main floor powder room and a custom built bench. The expansive living/dining area features upgraded hardwood flooring, French door, pot lighting, a large bay window, dining room plate rail and a brick fireplace. The recently renovated kitchen has quartz countertops, pot lights, stainless steel appliances and a sunny breakfast room addition with a cathedral ceiling and a walk-out to a deck, patio and large private fully fenced back yard with mature trees. There is also a natural gas line for the Weber BBQ, which is included along with all the other appliances. Upstairs there are three well-proportioned bedrooms, a renovated four piece bathroom with a heated floor, pot lights and rain head shower, a large cedar lined walk-in closet in the master, and upgraded hardwood floors throughout. The finished basement has extra high ceilings (approx. 7'6&quot;), a large rec room with engineered hardwood flooring, pot lighting, lots of built-ins including a wine fridge, plenty of storage, and a recently renovated three piece bathroom with a glass enclosed rain head shower and heated floor. An above average inspection report is available on request. The home has an upgraded electrical system (no knob &amp; tube); upgraded water supply (good water pressure); upgraded windows; newer (2 years) central air conditioner; 12 year old furnace and approx. 10 year old roof shingles. <br>
