The quality of urban living - that which makes it most distinct, are the nuances and the quiet subtext that are created by being at the centre of it all. There is a quiet hum of synergy that stitches the urban vibe together, from boutique storefront to eclectic eateries to dazzling towers that dot this midtown neighbourhood. There is a sense of constant activity without the pressure of being busy. The motion is alluring, because it is fashionable, and because there is a sense that something cool is always around the corner. Which, at this address, is completely and utterly true.
Welcome to 188 Redpath Suite 207.
There is an untold sense of freedom in being able to open up your front door and have dozens of choices literally at your doorstep. Within a 10-minute walk to Yonge Street there is dining, shopping and social spots - each to fit your time frame and your frame of mind. Sometimes the best part of having options is not having to choose - but simply going with the moment. And to live in a location that supports that kind of spontaneity? Amazing!
Developed by Plazacorp and completed in 2000, this eight storey building is home to 86 suites, ranging in size from just over 500 square feet to just over 1300 square feet. This low rise building emanates a sense of character and community in this decidedly urban location. Amenities include 10 visitor underground parking spaces, a party room with outdoor barbecue, billiard room and security system.
Some of the best bets nearby include microroaster DeMello Palheta, where you can stop for a fine cup of coffee and dessert. Stop by Sip Wine Bar for a lovely Chianti and a wood-fired pizza. Meet friends for drinks at Cibo Wine Bar, or perhaps catch their Sunday Brunch. Boutique shopping is nearby, as well as some familiar chains, like Shoppers Drug Mart, Best Buy and others, where you can conveniently do errands within walking distance.
Also in the immediate neighbourhood is the Northern District Branch of the Toronto Library that offers family movie nights, writing groups and all sorts of programming. The components of “the” urbane location are nearby as well- namely quick access to public transit on Eglinton, and the wide green space of Eglinton Park. This large park has multi-sports fields, wading pools, tennis courts, ice rinks and an impressive play structure.
Another great asset when it comes to a real estate purchase is the proximity to schools, whether you have immediate need for them or not. This condominium is located centrally to a number of different schools, depending on your age and stage of education. Century-old Eglinton Jr. Public School offers programs for kids from JK through Grade 6. The next stage is Hodgson Sr. Public School, which is for kids in Grade 7-8 and has extended French, as well as modified programming to support different learning styles. Right down the street is North Toronto Collegiate Institute, which boasts a 90 per cent University admission rate among graduates.
Efficient use of space is an admirable feat, and this suite graciously accomplishes that with its thoughtful, well-proportioned space plan. This unit is all about natural light, which you are acutely aware of immediately when you cross the threshold. South-east facing windows usher the light in, and also offer a pleasant treescape vista.
Gleaming St. Lawrence Sienna engineered maple floors (a recent addition) expand through the suite, welcoming you with a warm, rich palette. Just off the foyer, you'll find a 2-piece powder room, complete with pedestal sink and ceramic floors; entertainers will love that their guests won't have to travel through the bedroom to use the washroom! Directly adjacent is a convenient storage closet and hidden stacked ensuite laundry. We love the den, which is a separate, bonus room; it has the potential to fulfill a multitude of purposes, from home office to nursery to guest room!
Continuing into the suite, the sleek kitchen opens on your left, boasting ample preparation space - including a breakfast bar - and plenty of storage. Granite countertops contrast nicely with the shaker cabinetry and compliment the black appliances. Beyond, the spacious entertainment area is bathed in morning light, thanks to its east exposure. This modular space can be portioned to fulfill various needs!
Tucked away to the right is the Master Bedroom, which possesses a comfortable, cozy quality, despite offering ample space! It features east-facing windows, double closets, and is completed by a modern 4-piece ensuite bathroom!
This sweet suite is completely 'turn key', ready for a new owner to move in! Recently refreshed, we particularly love the smooth ceilings, new flooring, new lighting, and pleasing, neutral paint. The amenities and common areas lend immense appeal and add value to ownership in this building, with nice perks like 10 visitor parking spaces, recently redone hallways and lobby, and a party room with BBQs and a billiards table!
As far as urban spaces go, this suite scores high for both needs and wants (and a Walk Score of 93!), with a thoughtful layout and prime location to boot!
