Toronto apartment description

The apartment is the lower level of our Victorian home in the heart of Riverdale. We completely renovated our home in 2010 - gutted right back to the exterior brick wall! Everything is new and gorgeous. The apartment has cherry floors, pot lights, good natural light and heated floors.

With a separate and private entrance at the side, access is easy with your own code, no keys required. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped with IKEA cabinets, butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances, as well as a coffee maker & grinder, microwave, toaster oven, pots, pans, dishes...

The sitting room has a flat screen television with cable and a built-in DVD player. The comfortable pull- out sofa has a queen size mattress.

The bedroom has a queen size bed, with quality linens, and a full wall of closets. With a nice deep soaker tub and a rain shower the bathroom is sumptuous with a heated, porcelain floor. We also provide a hair dryer, an iron and a small table top ironing board.

For extra convenience you also have your own stackable washer and dryer. There is a small outdoor sitting area but we are a one minute walk to one of the largest parks in the city, complete with swimming pool, tennis courts, skating rink, hiking trails and an awesome tobogganing hill!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: We have lived on this street for 15 years and absolutely love it. It is a nicely treed street and a quiet area and yet we are 10 minutes to Yonge & Bloor. It is beyond convenient to a million facilities. We are 10 doors from 2 streetcar routes to go downtown - the Eaton Centre (10 mins), U of T (20 mins), Royal Ontario Museum (15 mins), The Art Gallery (20 mins), the Financial District (15 mins)... An 8 minute walk will take you to the Danforth where you'll find tons of lovely shops, excellent restaurants and pubs and the subway. Every August we have 'The Taste of the Danforth' where over a million people come to sample the varied cuisine of the neighbourhood. A 5 minute walk south and you'll find yourself in the heart of Chinatown east, with excellent grocery stores and restaurants with food from China, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. A 15 minute walk south will take you to all of the trendy haunts of Queen East comprising Riverside, South Riverdale and Leslieville. There you'll also find a 24 hour streetcar to take you east to the Beach or west to downtown and Queen West. We are also 2 minutes to the main north-south highway - the Don Valley Parkway, which takes you to the 401 or TransCanada as well as the major east-west route along the Gardiner Expressway leading to the Airport, Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. We also live right beside one of the largest parks and ravine systems in the city, where you can walk or cycle for miles enjoying the Don Valley and the river. It's hard to find a more convenient location yet still be in a peaceful location. You'll love it!

                      Why the Owner Chose Toronto:
                      This home is close to everything and yet we're out of the hustle and bustle and noise. We can walk up to the Danforth in 10 mins where you'll find the subway, tons of shops, restaurants and pubs. A 5 minute walk south of us will take you to East Chinatown where you can dine in some of the best Cantonese, Szechuan and Vietnamese restaurants. If you keep walking south, within 15 minutes you'll find yourself on Queen Street East, also known as South Riverdale, Riverside or Leslieville. Here too, there is an amazing array of shops, cafes and pubs. We are also 15 - 20 minutes by transit to Yonge & Bloor, Yorkville, Church/Wellesley Village, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery, University of Toronto, the Beach, the Science Centre, Ontario Place, Toronto Islands, Harbourfront, the CN Tower, Rogers Centre, the Air Canada Centre, the Hockey Hall of Fame... We can get to the island airport in 15 minutes or Pearson Airport in 30 minutes as we are conveniently located near the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway allowing us to travel easily in any direction.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      This suite was completely renovated in 2008. It has it's own independent heating system (lovely and warm in-floor heating), new windows with good light, a very nice bathroom with a deep soaker tub and rain shower, gorgeous cherry flooring, a spacious kitchen with good cooking space and new stainless steel appliances, private laundry, a very comfortable queen bed and pull-out couch with queen mattress, excellent closet space, pot lights and complete privacy to come and go as you please. Although it is the lower level of our home, you'll be impressed by how comfortable it is.
