Organic/Biodynamic Residential Home

141 Carrington Drive, located in the Mill Pond neighbourhood north of downtown Toronto
We have owned the house since 2003. When we moved in there had already been some renovations (hardwood floors throughout the main floor and natural slate stone floor in kitchen. Previous owners had renovated the kitchen putting in wood cupboards and a working island in the middle making it very functional (Pictures from original listing available on request). The wall between the front room and living room has been removed, opening up the space on the main floor. The 2 bathrooms upstairs and powder room on main floor and the basement had been renovated.
Backs on to large ravine with some of the largest mature trees in Richmond Hill, many types of birds, small stream and maintained trails connecting to Mill Pond Park. Mill Pond is a large forested park with many trails and has winter skating, many festivals and music. https://www.richmondhill.ca/en/things-to-do/Mill-Pond-Park.aspx
