Home of the Week: Macpherson Avenue next-door neighbours go head to head on the market

Macpherson Avenue is one of the most prestigious addresses in the city. But for two of the street's residents —next-door neighbours, no less —it's time to sell their Victorian semi-detached homes and move on;leaving two stunning properties on the marketwithin days of one another.

Sittingside by side, these two sought-after homes are located on the south side of Macpherson Avenue, just a short walk to some great restaurants and shops in the Summerhilland Rosedale neighbourhood.

First up is 45 Macpherson Avenue, listed for $2,795,000 with Chestnut Park Real Estate Ltd.

Thethree-storeysemi-detached property has been completely renovated, with a mix of wrought-iron, Brazilian slate and warm walnut custom millwork throughout. The property features a third-master retreat with a stunning south-facing decking overlooking Toronto's skyline. There's also a year-round plunge pool and a professionally landscaped backyard.

Next door, at 47Macpherson Avenue, is a 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home that's on sale for $2,395,000 withSlavens& Associates.

Like its counterpart, 47 has plenty of space for entertaining with an equivalent third-storeymaster retreat with skyline views from the rooftop terrace. Alternatively, take a walk out from the breakfast room into the backyard, where there's spacefor some patio furniture and a detached garage.
