ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
Brilliantly completed under the careful eye of design firm, The Linear Workshop, this Brooklyn-style townhome will astound you. The juxtaposition of a historically correct restored brick façade (circa 1868) with three stories of dramatic glass at the back (circa 2018). Function and art meld perfectly here. Precise attention to detail is apparent throughout. Stunning architectural staircase drenched with natural sun from the skylights above. Art gallery-style recessed lighting. Seductive hits of black. Perfectly aligned wood grain of the white Oak custom cabinetry. Drama and intrigue.
The main floor has been made for entertaining – 2/3rds of the back wall of glass opens up onto the deck and back garden. Serious cooks and party goers will be very pleased here. Fun and sexy custom kitchen with an oversized peninsula perfect for guests to satisfy their appetite. Granite countertops and top-drawer appliances. Caterers can hide in the back prep kitchen. Grab a bottle of wine from the lower level wine towers and mill about this incredible space.
Upstairs, you’ll find two generously sized bedrooms and luxurious spa-like baths. The master suite, with its beverage centre, is right out of a dream. The piece-de-resistance on the second floor is the stupefying and amazing home office / media room. It could also be used as an overflow space, with pullout sofa, for overnight guests. Flooded with sunlight from the massive windows.
The lower level has been finished to the same caliber as the rest of the home. Third cozy bedroom. Superb full bath. Laundry room, with walk-out to the back garden, where washing clothes is not a chore.
Park behind the remotely controlled back gate. For buyers with two cars, a future Romax double parking system can easily solve that issue. It even gets better: the property backs onto Milan Street, which is plowed by the city in winter and rubbish bins can be placed there for ease. Excellent highway access.
Even though there is great parking, a Walk Score of 94 + a Biker’s Score of 98 means you can cancel your gym membership. Walk to work in the financial district in less than 15 minutes. Cycle to the discovery, university, or hospital districts in about the same time. Close proximity to the Distillery, St. Lawrence Market areas for live theatre and terrific night life.
Set half way between vibrant Yonge Street downtown and foodie centric Cabbagetown, along Parliament Street: rustic pizza at Salt and Tobacco; cappuccino at Jet Fuel; deep fried Taiwanese style chicken at Kanpai; Sunday night roast at the House on Parliament. Your food cravings are easily satisfied. Eponymous Daniel et Daniel gourmet food shop and the little LCBO store make dinner at home a breeze.
Ideal for the discerning single exec or busy professional couple who desires an easy-to-care-for downtown residence, without compromising impeccable quality + style.
Very urban. Very impressive!
