For those who are seeking the best of urban living, you know that balancing your ideal property matrix of value, location, and condition is no easy feat. This is especially true if you’re looking to lease a space that combines loads of unique character with a contemporary sensibility, and is situated in a prime locale with terrific local amenities just a stroll away. If there were a property that could hit all these marks - say, a classic upgraded legal triplex, nestled in a dynamic neighbourhood - it would definitely be an ideal contender, wouldn't it?
Welcome to 76 Hamilton Street!
This welcoming end-of-row dwelling is located in one of Toronto's most sought-after neighbourhoods: vibrant Riverside! Encompassing an area where residences predominantly date from the early 1900s, Riverside breathes its own distinct character and vibe. It's comfortable, progressive, and diverse! Residents enjoy the rare 'village-within-a-city' feel, where you can genuinely engage your neighbours, and feel invested in your community's well-being. Wouldn't you love to enjoy this kind of elevated urban domesticity? If so, the Upper Suite of 76 Hamilton Street could be just the ticket!
A host of amenities lies just steps away on both Queen Street East and Broadview Avenue, waiting to serve you and yours. Boutique shops, cafes, and purveyors of fresh produce in nearby East Chinatown dot the streets in full support of a pedestrian lifestyle. There is colour and conversation on every corner! Riverside is in proximity to a one-stop-shop Loblaw's grocer (open from 8am to 10pm), a liquor store, and a Shoppers Drug Mart, which are just a few of the amenities that will make daily errands a breeze! A pleasant stroll northward, past picturesque Riverdale Park, will find you on the Danforth, where pubs, cafes, and specialty stores abound! Riverside is home to a plethora of amazing culinary destinations, serving excellent ethnic foods that reflect the community's genuine diversity. We love savoring brunch at Bonjour Brioche on Queen Street East or biting into perfectly cooked eggs at Mihali's Place. In the mood for Indian? We reccommend the fine fare at Tubule! And when we need a java fix? Rooster Coffee on Broadview, where a quaint patio offers panoramic views of downtown. Are you in the mood for exploring the city? There's a Zip Car and AutoShare on Broadview just south of The Danforth, and the Broadview subway station is steps away (or a quick streetcar ride) offering easy public transport across downtown and beyond. Commuting? There's easy-peasy access to the DVP and area highways to have you easily on your way. Don't miss the vast green spaces like Riverdale Park, Joel Weeks Park, or Thompson Street Parkette, offering the rejuvinating touch of nature, and fantastic outdoor recreation. Those with school-aged children will appreciate having Dundas Junior Public School - serving JK to Grade 5 - conveniently situated nearby. For Grades 6 through 8, Queen Alexandra Middle School serves the area, and reputable Riverside Collegiate, known for its academic excellence and strong community engagement, provides continuity for Grades 9 through 12.
Tucked away on a quiet street, the Upper Suite at 76 Hamilton is a bright, airy, and enchanting space, boasting two bedrooms, a pristine four-piece washroom, and - one of our favourite features - a fantastic tree-vista roof top deck! Sharing the front entry hall with its own private entrance, this luxe two-level retreat features a generous principal front room, with a beautiful bay window that overlooks the street’s enviable mature tree canopy. This open concept entertainment space - with its gleaming hardwood floors and vintage exposed brick wall - easily accomodates flexible living and dining zones, and flows into a modern chef's kitchen. We love the bright cabinetry, plentiful storage, and, of course, the built in dishwasher that eases the brunt of daily chores. The suite's 4-piece washroom is well-situated for privacy at the rear of the main floor, neighbouring a separate super-convenient laundry area - how fantastic is that!?
The two ample sized bedrooms are located on the second level - a perfect spot for quiet repose. Each bedroom has its own closet for convenient accessible storage, and there's access from this level to the sunny and spacious rooftop deck - exclusively for the use of the occupant of this suite! Imagine yourself basking in the afternoon sun of a languid summer day, perhaps preparing a feast on the barbecue for family and friends, or simply sharing a bottle of wine and private moment under the night sky! Feels pretty great, doesn't it?
This Riverside tree-top perch includes one-car parking accessed via laneway, and is offered for $2,750 per month plus hydro (45% to a maximum of $150/mo), gas (separately metered), and communications. City water and building insurance are included! Also, the owner kindly requests the tenants share in the responsibility of snow removal and garbage pick up.
Available for a March 15th occupancy, recently refreshed, and possessing oodles of charm, this heart-grabbing rental is truly dreamy!
