Vintage Charm Perched Above the Trees

Perched atop the trees, with stunning views and access to everything Lakeshore has to offer is 920 York Street. With period architectural details and a luscious sprawling garden, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home maintains its charm from almost a century ago. 

With a welcoming front porch, the entry flows through to the formal living room with an original built-in fireplace niche. Featuring charming original wainscotting, large windows that allow for an abundance of natural light, and an updated gas insert, the room feels warm and intimate. Further into the home is the dining room, centrally located so the kitchen, sunroom, and additional bedrooms and bathrooms all flow off of this space. French doors invite you into the sunroom, a perfect place to drink coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine at night. Distinctly modernized, the kitchen has been sleekly updated with classic white subway tile and newer appliances. Ideal for alfresco dining, this space also features a glass door leading to the expansive deck making outdoor dinner parties a breeze. The full deck envelopes the entire back of the home, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the East Bay at any time of day.

The two bedrooms on the main level exude with vintage charm. One features french doors leading out to the ample deck, while the other is highlighted by an abundance of natural light from the lovely large windows. On the lower level of the home is the living den, office space and laundry area. Intimate and cozy, these spaces also enjoy a full deck with views of the lovely established English style garden below. The primary suite can also be found on this level, with sliding doors which lead out to the deck and a charming ensuite bathroom updated with a shower-over-bath and floating sink vanity. Finally a full basement and garage complete the home. Located on a sweet quiet street you are just a few blocks from the boutiques and trendy restaurants on Grand and Lakeshore, great schools and friendly atmosphere. Welcome home.
