$989,900 for an updated side-split home backing onto a ravine in Orchard Park
Address: 133 Bloomfield Drive
Neighbourhood: Orchard Park
Agent: Dan Hinschberger, Re/Max City Centre Realty Inc.
A roomy, mid-century side-split backing straight onto the Medway Creek ravine system.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of the city’s northwest end, this side-split four-bedroom home features many iconic aspects of mid-century design: a spacious, open-concept layout, a sunken living room, beautiful vaulted ceilings and rich brick and wood accenting throughout the property. Built in 1957 and later renovated inside, the home features impressive views of the ravine system off the backyard, Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring throughout the main floor and an upscale design style. The kitchen has been upgraded with modern appliances and granite countertops, while the living room centres around a uniquely designed brick fireplace.
The second level features three bedrooms (one with a full ensuite) and two bathrooms, one of which comes with a full soaking tub (located beside a window offering relaxing views of the tree canopy out back). There’s also his and hers sinks, as well as a standalone rain shower. The third bedroom offers the potential for a home office. And if you’re someone who likes to wake up with a breath of fresh air, you’re also in luck, as the primary bedroom leads out onto a small upper-level patio with enough room for a small patio set. The bottom two levels feature a cozy den area, a fourth bedroom or guest room, and a fully finished basement with a third bathroom included.
The backyard will continue to impress, with a wooden deck that extends into the ravine, jutting off a landscaped stone patio that also incorporates a small putting green. And with large glass doors and full-length windows looking out from the main floor, the backyard can function quite like an outdoor living room in what is very much a house that will be comfortable in all seasons.
