Givin Me Life!

Like a breath of fresh spring air filled with chirping birds, budding flowers, optimism and hope, 19 Givins swoops in givin’ you all the reasons to shake a leg and get over here immediately. This is not a drill. Sweetest, 3 bedroom semi one block East of the Ossington Strip: enough distance to walk over in under 5 mins, but not be IN the thick of it. Main level serving you heaps of light with 9’ ceilings, a charming bay window and built-in shelving. Walk through family room to back deck and into sunny backyard (file under excellent vegetable garden) and out to 1 car garage. Finished and waterproofed basement with 4th bedroom and a 4 piece bathroom. Upstairs 3 bedrooms (back bedroom with quintessential CN tower view) and a renovated 3 piece bathroom. The sun is out, Toronto. Breathe in the lilacs and come and get it while the Givins is good.

Things to Love | Sellers’ Words

  • The view of the CN Tower from the back two bedrooms and the backyard is THE quintessential Toronto view – and often a spectacular light show at night.
  • In late spring peony bushes in front and back gardens provide prolific blooms. I also love the lilac tree for more homegrown floral arrangements.
  • The house is always bright and light-filled, and so cozy in the winter.
  • The all-white galley kitchen is so functional and so photogenic: everything is within easy reach, well-spaced and it makes a great backdrop for food and flower photos!
  • We have the best neighbours – hands down. Super friendly and helpful, everyone says “hi” or “good morning”. It really feels like a little village in the heart of the city.
  • The backyard is an oasis – so calm and peaceful – you’d never know you were right in the heart of the action. I love summer mornings with a coffee (or summer evenings with a cocktail) sitting back there and enjoying the quiet.
  • The garden gets excellent sun for growing vegetables – every summer I harvest more kale and other leafy greens, cucumbers, peppers, beets, radishes and carrots then I know what to do with. My kale crop fed several neighbours with fresh greens through November this past year.
  • There is a resident mated pair of cardinals who make frequent visits to the backyard – great bird watching.
  • Very frequent white squirrel sightings in both the front and back yards!
  • The very best neighbourhood in the city for dining out – top-rated restaurants are a quick walk away and you get to know all the chefs and shop keepers quite quickly.
  • Some of the best local coffee shops in the city: Sam James, White Squirrel, Antikka, Pilot Coffee Roasters and so many others – a true caffeine junkie haven!
  • The Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market every Tuesday spring through fall is a wonderful source of fresh organic veggies, meats, bread, and even oysters and local wines. A must-do ‘stroll and snack’ every Tuesday afternoon.
  • What is lovely is you are so close to Queen St West and Ossington Ave., but as soon as you step onto Givins St. it is its own, quiet little world.
