Worldwide, coveted streets evolve from a combination of history, architecture, location, beauty, and prestige. In Toronto, in the heart of Yorkville, that iconic street is Hazelton Avenue. Multimillion-dollar renovations discreetly disguised behind charming row houses and semi-detached Victorians rarely come to market. Only 6 detached homes exist and only one of them, through a rare set of circumstances is newly built. This rare home is 129 HAZELTON AVENUE.
It took two years to received final architectural approval from the Yorkville-Heritage association. The powerhouse team of Mizrahi Developments and renowned architect Lorne Rose spared no expense sourcing old Virginia red bricks, limestone trim, aged copper eaves troughs, downspouts and portico, cedar roof shingles, classic wrought iron fencing and coach lamps.
For a touch of 21st century convenience low maintenance gardens with irrigation systems, heated stone walkways and driveway were added.
