Mallyveen – a Waterfront Property at Toronto

Mallyveen is a property currently for sale in Toronto. The house dates from 1904, and it’s in immaculate condition. This is one of the best properties I’ve shot this year, which is why I’m sharing it with you.

Mallyveen would have been one of the original properties when the Toronto waterfront area was first developed – the lot is enormous and is pretty much level at the western end. Most nearby properties have been subdivided.

The driveway is flanked by Agapanthus and avocado trees.

The rear yard has been terraced and features a swimming pool.

The original living areas are on the upper level. Generous spaces, high ceilings, and lovely timber detailing.

Lead-lighted casement windows and French doors are typical of this era of Australian architecture.

The house has a north-easterly aspect on to Lake Macquarie.

The kitchen and family room are on the lower level and I suspect were first fitted out at a later date than the original top floor. But the whole place has been completely renovated just a few years ago.

The master bedroom opens on to the top verandah and has views over the lake.
