The story of 1024 Sunnyhills Road
Gracing one of Crocker Highlands’ most appealing blocks, this Traditional circa 1923 highlights enduring characteristics and recent renovations. Thorough remodels to spacious kitchen, full bathroom, and half bathroom bring freshness and function amid preserved and polished original architecture. Throughout the three-bedroom composition, hardwood floors gleam, new windows and lighting schemes intermix. Its single level of fluid living space opens to a terraced back garden with leafy outline, an organic privacy screen.
Tree-lined Sunnyhills Road gently sways and slopes, displaying Twenties-era street lamps and distinctly styled architecture. Beyond picturesque, the setting provides ideal proximity, even walkability, to beloved neighborhood schools, unique cafes, shopping, and recreation throughout Lakeshore and Park Boulevard hubs. Ideally situated within the neighborhood as well as on its gradually elevated property, the home sits slightly above and overlooking its surroundings.
Period and modern elements merge as the interior unfolds. The foyer sets a radiant tone that extends throughout; hardwood floors with vibrant grain patterning reflect natural light from expansive and appealingly assorted windows. A focal-point marble-surround fireplace anchors the living room, flanked by windows suspended over display shelves and complemented by a triple-window array that spans nearly floor to ceiling. Another triple-window sequence in the dining room enlivens intimate and large gatherings.
The kitchen’s wide-ranging footprint features a butler’s pantry area plus a beverage bar. New, from top to bottom, recessed lighting to tiled flooring, its clean-lined cabinetry with contemporary hardware, stone floor and counters, subway tile backsplashes, all tie together stylistically and in their durability. A suite of stainless appliances by Frigidaire includes a five-burner gas range; the adjacent laundry-mud room with kitchen pantry features new appliances as well. Unifying the spaces, the well-equipped multifunction room reiterates kitchen flooring, cabinetry, and countertop. It offers access to the back garden, where a long-and-level terrace supplies a garden-side expanse for open-air dining and grilling.
Granted privacy from public spaces, three bedrooms spread out along a lengthy sweep of hallway. Cohesively appointed bathrooms reflect fresh-white refurbishment. Both the hall full bathroom and half bath within a bedroom feature over-scaled hexagonal floor tile and new fixtures.
On the lower level, a workshop provides project and storage space plus access to the attached garage.
