15 Powell Avenue, Toronto
15 Powell Avenue perfectly positioned in the exclusive Rosedale community. This masterpiece offers unparalleled charm and sophistication. Designed by architect William Grierson, this heritage property exudes the warmth and beauty associated with Toronto’s most prestigious character homes.
This solid brick home was built in 1908 on a quiet tree-lined street. Set on a lovely 43 x 140 foot lot, the vibrant and mature perennial garden provides a lush escape from the sounds of the city and adds to the appeal of this grand home.
Step inside to be greeted with an abundance of natural light, sprawling foyer, rich hardwood floors, stained glass atrium window and original dentil mouldings.
The main floor includes a lovely library with fireplace, a fabulous Great Room with classic 10’ ceilings and a wood burning fireplace, a spacious informal dining room with views of the garden sanctuary and a kitchen with an eclectic vibe with retro inspired checkered hardwood floors, heathered gray cabinets and a built-in wall terrarium. With proper plans and approval, creating an open concept kitchen with a large centre island is something to consider if you prefer a more social cooking scenario.
Upstairs, the master suite is complete with a king sized bedroom & 5-piece ensuite bathroom, a tranquil family room with an open-gas fireplace provides a quiet place to sneak away to. Also on this floor is an office and another 4-piece bathroom.
The third floor provides three good sized bedrooms with generous closets and they all share a spacious 4-piece bathroom that has been updated over time. The ceilings offer architectural lines and an abundance of natural light cascades through a multitude of windows and skylights.
The lower level offers copious amounts of storage and a complete one-bedroom apartment in the basement which could be a nanny’s quarters or caregivers apartment.

It is a short hike to Brickworks for some of Toronto’s most breathtaking views. By car or subway (walkable to Castle Frank and Sherbourne stations) the downtown commute is only 10 minutes and the Don Valley Parkway allows for an easy escape out of the city.
