For the Buyer who seeks easy access to the Don Valley Parkway, craves the restorative qualities of natural green space (or is an avid golfer!), and desires a spacious intelligently-designed three bedroom condominium, you'll want to take note of this house-sized condominium residence at 3 Concorde Place near Wynford Drive and Eglinton Avenue East.
Welcome to Highgate Condominiums!
Highgate Condominiums is well-situated for lovers of retail therapy. You’ve got lots of choices for promenade shopping very close by. A short drive away are The Shops At Don Mills, Eglinton Square and Eglinton Town Centre. There are a handful of neighbourhood shops within walking distance from your front door too, including a convenience store and Tim Hortons for coffee and donut lovers (how Canadian is that?). It’s not just the shops that are handy; also within walking distance are cultural institutions such as the Ismaili Centre and the spectacular Aga Khan Museum.
This complex also offers an abundance of green space for leisure, fresh air and exercise. You can have a “country in the city” experience, about a 5-minute walk away at the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area, and other area trails are close by as well. If you’re a lover of golf - or if you’d like to take it up - you’ve got a great course right in your neighbourhood: the 9-hole Flemingdon Park Golf Course.
Just over a 5-minute drive will deliver you to Edwards Gardens, where you can take a fragrant stroll through the impressive estate-style gardens. The Toronto Botanical Gardens is headquartered here as well, and offers learning experiences and programs. Also nearby is Sunnybrook Park, which boasts loads of wide open green space, walking trails and is noted for being one of the best spots in the city to spot birds.
There are unique dining opportunities nearby as well. At the Aga Khan Museum, you can dine at Diwan, which offers fare from the Middle East, North Africa, and the Indian subcontinent. The dining room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and boasts 19th-century wooden panels hand-carved and painted in Damascus. For a truly private dining experience, visit Kaiseki Yu-zen Hashimoto. With only three tables, you can truly immerse yourself in Japanese culinary tradition, including tea ceremonies.
Its prime location near the DVP is convenient for commuters, it’s amazingly close to public transport as well. For example, less than a one minute walk from your doorstep is the bus stop for the 34A Eglinton East bus which will take you directly to the Yonge/Eglinton Centre subway stop in 37 minutes. It’s efficient, speedy and easy!
You may or may not have immediate need in your household for schools, but having quality schools nearby is always a bonus when it comes to maintaining and growing the asset value of your home. 3 Concorde Place is close to Gateway Public School in Flemingdon Park, which offers programming from JK through to Grade 6. Intermediate students (Grades 6-8) have the choice of two schools in the district: Valley Park Middle School and Don Mills Middle School. Marc Garneau CI offers high school (Grade 9-12), but is also well known for its TOPS Enrichment program. Also serving this district for high school is Don Mills CI.

This suite boasts large windows and generous dimensions in all rooms; the north and west exposures make it feel extremely open and airy! From the mirrored entry foyer featuring tile flooring, double coat closet and convenient access to the kitchen, one enters the spacious entertainment zone complete with a double glass-door walk out to the balcony, an ideal spot for a relaxing morning cuppa while being nicely sheltered from the higher winds often experienced on higher floors. The handsomely renovated eat-in kitchen, offers easy-to-maintain ceramic tile flooring, caesarstone counter tops, modern black appliances, custom solid wood cabinetry, ample storage, and plenty of prep area; it’s a winning combination for any level of culinary enthusiast! The kitchen is elevated even further by the sun-drenched breakfast area solarium that shares the space! We adore the adjacent family room; it’s being utilized by the current owners as their formal dining room - ideal for those large family get-togethers - but, alternately, it could be used as cozy den, study, home office or even an additional bedroom for a guest or caregiver! The possibilities are endless for this flexible space!
Further down the hall, one finds a convenient updated two piece guest bath, handy laundry area, linen closet and utility/storage room.
