Swansea Gem

78 Mayfield AveWelcome to 78 Mayfield Avenue, an exquisite four-bedroom family home custom built 2013 with all new construction. This stunning home has been thoughtfully designed, employing a contemporary motif blended with a touch of Arts & Crafts flavour. It’s situated on a quiet one-way street in a sought-after Swansea enclave just 5 minutes’ walk from Bloor West Village shops and the subway station. It’s a Walker’s Paradise!

This striking home has a stone & stucco exterior with a Tudor-style front facade, featuring an attractive portico entrance and an elegant front door with decorative stained glass panels and a transom window.

The sun-filled open concept living/dining area has been finished with quartz counters, a glass backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a high-end Bosch dishwasher, a side-by-side fridge, a gas stove with a double electric oven, and a cyclone exhaust fan. The stylish custom cabinetry includes soft closers and undermount lighting, and there is also a large island/breakfast bar with pendant lighting. The kitchen flows to an open concept family room with built-in surround sound, a cozy breakfast nook in a bay window, and a glass door that walks out to the serene backyard, which is shaded by mature trees and features an elegant stone patio.

The main floor has 9-foot ceilings, crown moulding, numerous pot lights, and site-finished hardwood flooring throughout.

The roomy master suite has a cozy sitting area, a bay window overlooking the leafy backyard, a large walk-in closet, and a coffered ceiling with pot lighting.
