Selling points

You get to live on a pretty quiet street, protected by a school and its playground from the busy traffic of Kensington Road. You also get to share your street with the beautiful Hillhurst United Church. Best of all, you are steps away fromKensington Wine Market (among other liquid knowledge, the staff is really good at recommending Scotch), Peppino's for fine Italian sandwiches (try the Joe's Special), Chef's Table(you'll never regret having breakfast there) and Pulcinella (why order pizza when you can go here?). All of that means that, while your gourmet kitchen is lovely, you might not need it. Did we mention that Avenue has also featured this home before? We did. We really like it.
