Historic Glenfern


15-21 Glenfern Avenue

15-21 Glenfern Ave is a charming and unique apartment building located in the heart of Toronto's Beach neighbourhood. Situated on the south side of Glenfern Avenue, off Silver Birch Avenue, with direct access to the beach. This waterfront co-ownership building has 20 suites, with hardwood floors, original wood trim, crown molding and some working fireplaces.

15-21 Glenfern Avenue was built in 1928 by Addison Johnston, a local builder and entrepreneur, who redeveloped a lot at Silver Birch and Lake Front.

Rare in Toronto, 15-21 Glenfern is a nice example of a low-rise apartment building designed in the style of Gustav Stickley's Craftsman Homes with the distinct features of Edwardian Classicism.
