*Both Suites Have Been Leased*
For those with children or pets seeking rental accommodations, we know how challenging it can be to find a spacious apartment in a neighbourhood setting steps to urban amenities. Fortunately, the urbaneer team are delighted to present two well-maintained suites in a legal duplex in the heart of East York.
Welcome to 212 Glebemount Avenue!
East York - which runs north from The Danforth east of Broadview to Victoria Park Avenue - has a deep connection to its history. First established in the 1920s, it was incorporated as a borough in 1967, amalgamating the former East York Township and Leaside. Today, the residents are mixed, with seniors comprising some of the original residents and - over the past 15 years - the arrival of young families drawn by the affordability and easy access to downtown Toronto. Given the extended time span over which much of the construction happened in East York, the housing stock is varied, made up mostly of two-storey detached and semi-detached homes, as well as numerous bungalows. In the 1960s through 1990s, the area has seen the arrival of mid and high-rise buildings and, more recently, an emerging trend which signal a new life cycle for this neighbourhood. Increasingly, East York is seeing the reconstruction of the original bungalows being topped up and expanded into larger single family homes, along with a movement to tear down the original obsolete small bungalows for newly constructed luxury executive custom homes. Unfortunately, this has strained the availability of rental housing stock.
Fortunately, we're pleased to offer two well-maintained 2bed 1bath suites in a legal duplex just steps from the action. For those who value a decidedly connected community, this 3-suite semi-detached dwelling on a corner lot on Glebemount Avenue is part of that 'small-town' feel that emanates from this tight-knit community.
We love East York! This funky borough has its share of flavourful window front shopping, mostly along Pape, Donlands, Greenwood, Coxwell, and Woodbine Avenues. There are numerous bakers, butchers and fruit markets, conveniently located throughout the neighbourhood. East York is also convenient for downtown commuters, about a 15-minute drive to Toronto centre.
This property is located a a hop-skip and a jump away with bus service on Mortimer Avenue, or there's a bus that runs on Coxwell which connects quickly to the Bloor-Danforth Subway Line. Work in health care? This property is a short five minute stroll to the Michael Garron Hospital at Mortimer and Coxwell, so if shift work is part of your daily life, the proximity offers loads of convenience and extra winks! Got kids? This residence is just a short walk away from reputable RH McGregor Elementary School, which offers programming from JK to Grade 5 and Cosburn Middle School, which services Grades 6 through 8. And kids in this area can even finish out High School within walking distance from home; East York Collegiate is under a 15-minute walk, door-to-door, which offers diverse and dynamic programming from Grades 9-12.
Some of our local favs? We stock up on baked goods at Select Bakery, and head to Leslieville Cheese Market & Fine Foods for premium cheeses and fine foods. Don’t feel like cooking? Family-friendly options in the hood include Captain John Donlands Fish and Chips and The Greek Grill (which promotes itself as having the most ‘authentic Greek food in Toronto’). Craving a good burger? Hole-E-Burger actually puts holes in their burgers so that you can fill up on unique and tasty toppings. Of course, there's loads more options on The Danforth too!
The Garden Suite - $1950 per month + hydro (includes heat!)
The Garden Suite features two bedrooms and one bath, with ensuite laundry. Finished in gleaming parquet floors and with fresh paint, this well-maintained suite is drenched in light with north, east and west exposures. Well-proportioned and immaculate, the suite is well-suited for sharing or for a family. It includes four appliances (fridge, stove, washer and dryer), and has a door off the rear bedroom which connects to the side entrance to access the garden and garage. Do you have a car? The tenants for these two suites can share the two car garage (optional storage) as well as park a second vehicle each on the double drive. The rear yard is a fenced common area perfect for those who love to garden or barbecue.
The Upper Suite - $2150 per month + hydro (includes heat!)
The Upper Suite is similar to the Garden Suite, except it's slightly larger. Having two bedrooms and one bath, as well as ensuite laundry, the open concept entertainment area and the hall have two skylights which flood the suite in light. The larger back bedroom has a walk-out to a new deck that has a spiral stair which connects to the common rear garden and garage. Recently vacant, the suite is being freshly painted this week. It includes four appliances (fridge, stove, washer and dryer).
Top to bottom, we think this home hits the mark! Family and pet-friendly, the property has been recently refreshed and professionally cleaned. Better still, both of these heart-grabbing rentals are ready for immediate occupancy to those who appreciate outdoor space, and are willing to maintaining it. If you have a love for the outdoors and gardening this place is definitely for you, given the owner is seeking tenants to collectively share in snow removal, garbage pick up and garden maintenance.
For the discriminating renter who covets character and charm, but also values the opportunity to live in a connected community, surrounded by amenities that will improve quality of life, 212 Glebemount Avenue is a perfect choice.
