Built in 1906, 1122 Bay Street is a jewel in the Craftsman tradition situated on the cul-de-sac end of Bay Street. This 4+BD/2.5BA, 3,140 square foot home enchants from the moment you pass through its distinctive and utterly welcoming dutch front door and into the home’s entryway, which is encased in gorgeous woodwork, a hallmark of the era and architectural style.
To your left you will find 1122 Bay’s expansive sunken living area, with distinctive windows, beamed ceilings, glowing built-in benches and cabinetry with original hardware — all elegantly lit with subtle modern, dimmable lighting. The living area includes multiple seating areas; pass through it and you will find one of 1122 Bay’s many surprises: a stunning inglenook fireplace framed by built-in benches.
Cross back through the magnificent entryway and the home’s formal dining room reveals itself, replete with exposed beams and built-in cabinetry with stained glass and warmed by a gorgeous fireplace. From there, broad sliding glass doors lead to 1122 Bay’s spacious and inviting deck, which overlooks the home’s expansive lawn and rear garden. Further exploration of the entry level reveals a beautiful sunroom.
The kitchen at 1122 Bay features quartz countertops, a five-burner gas range, and ample cabinetry; it is flanked by a light-filled breakfast room. Off of the breakfast room you will find the laundry room, a powder room, and additional access to the home’s large and striking rear garden.
Ascend the home’s staircase and still more delightful surprises unfold, beginning with the rare opportunity of 4+ bedrooms one one level. The owner’s suite features a remarkably versatile floorplan: a main bedroom and two additional rooms, each one offering space that could be used as an office or nursery. Also within the owner’s suite: a walk-through closet and private bath with step-in shower overlooking the rear garden.
Continue to explore the second level of this remarkable home and you will find two additional spacious bedrooms that share a beautifully updated, modern hallway bath with shower over tub accented by a dual-sink marble vanity and beautiful marble hexagon floor tile.
The rear garden of 1122 Bay is lined with beautiful garden beds and is shaded by a magnificent oak tree. A patio provides the ideal space for outdoor dining, while a verdant lawn spreads invitingly below the oak tree. Within the home’s two-car garage you will find a space ideal for use as a rec room, kids club house or storage. 1122 Bay also features a full basement with multiple rooms for storage, a workshop, and a finished room with a closet and shelves, suitable for myriad uses and with tremendous potential for further upgrades.
