Home of the Week: A renovated Chaplin Estates home with a sun-filled family room for $2.788 million

From its vibrant red brick exterior to the extensively renovated interior, the home at 79 Elmsthorpe Ave. is a beauty. The renovations on this two-storey build were done in accordance with Feng Shui principles in order to tap the best energy for its occupants. The home is move-in ready thanks to modern updates that include an all new chef’s kitchen, hardwood flooring and an extended master bedroom.

The home’s generous square footage offers three bedrooms, four bathrooms and plenty of living space. Its Chaplin Estates postal code means the property isn’t far from all the midtown shops and restaurants at Yonge and Eglinton. It’s currently listed for a cool $2.788 million.
