The neighbourhood of Moore Park has always been a picturesque retreat in one of Toronto’s most desirable locations. It’s a private enclave surrounded by nature, and streets lined by lush and mature trees, yet easily accessible to transit and to downtown. Beautiful homes sit on generous lots and vary in style, from English Cottage to Georgian and Tudor.
Perfectly placed on one of Moore Park’s most exclusive streets is 118-120 Rosedale Heights Drive; a unique offering for the neighbourhood. Blending beautifully with the other homes on the street, 118-120 offers three separate suites within a grand home exterior. Reminiscent of grand apartments in the Upper East Side of New York or Paris, these gorgeous suites offer impeccable finishes, beautiful architectural details and grand floor plans. Each level truly feels like its own stand-alone home complete with gorgeous character, high ceilings and a generous amount of living space.
Accomplished interior designer Melody Duron and her husband originally purchased the property when it was a duplex. Upon acquiring it, they decided to convert the two existing units into three independently owned suites. While this kind of refurbishment is common practice in cities like London and New York, it was avant-garde for Toronto. Melody knew this was the perfect project where she could really unleash her talent to make something special and interesting in a beautiful and historical neighbourhood. She did not disappoint. The hardwood floors, leaded glass windows, tasteful finishes, and custom trim are all in line with what one would expect from a classic Moore Park home.
In 2008, the project was completed and received accolades for its design and was featured in House and Home Magazine.
The upper suite of 118 Rosedale Heights boasts nine-foot ceilings and large principal rooms, generous in size with exquisite details found everywhere. The south-facing living room has a wall of beautiful leaded windows overlooking the front gardens. A gas-burning fireplace provides warmth in the winter and the adjoining den makes the perfect home office. The dining room offers ample seating and flows to the adjoining superbly designed chef’s kitchen. The master bedroom offers sanctuary at the end of the day with a gorgeous ensuite. The second and third bedrooms flank another lovely four-piece bathroom. Two soaring two-storey skylights flood the central hallway with sunlight. This suite offers a perfect blend of maintenance-free living with a traditional feel of a family home.
The lower level suite of 120A Rosedale Heights is a fabulous alternative to a modern condominium. Offering quality finishes, and great flow of space, this suite is very “New York”. Professionally designed, there is great flow of space as the foyer leads into a beautiful kitchen complete with marble countertops, a breakfast island, stainless steel appliances and an abundance of storage. A large dining room overlooks the living room, making this suite perfect for entertaining or as a pied à terre. An oversized master bedroom with large ensuite surrounded in marble.
