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 - or two! - that could hit all these marks, it would definitely be an ideal contender, wouldn't it?
This 1960s semi-detached purpose-built two-unit Swell Dwell located in Prime Riverdale is just five streets from the Broadview Subway Station and The Danforth. Situated in a family-friendly neighbourhood with fantastic shopping amenities and sandwiched between two incredible lush parks, 10 Tennis Crescent has a Walk Score of 86 out of 100.
This location is “Very Walkable” so most errands can be accomplished on foot. Located six doors east of Broadview Avenue at Riverdale Park East, it's a one minute walk from the 504 KING and the 505 DUNDAS streetcars or just walk up to the subway station which is four stops east of Yonge and Bloor. Loblaws Grocer is steps away, as is the organic Carrot Common, Shopper's Drug Mart and liquor store. Nearby coffee shops include The Rooster Coffee House, Si Espresso Bar and Café Fiorentina and, get this... there are 107 restaurants within a 15 minute walk, located on The Danforth, Gerrard East and on Queen Street East in hip Leslieville.
Riverdale Park East, an 18 hectare park at the end of the street is popular for winter tobogganing and the panoramic views of the downtown Toronto skyline. The park features two ball diamonds, three multipurpose sports fields, a running track, seven tennis courts, an artificial outdoor ice rink and ball hockey pad, a picnic area, a children's playground and an outdoor pool. There's a naturalized area at the north end of the park, a bridge over to Cabbagetown's Riverdale Farm, and links to the Don Valley - and Evergreen Brickworks - for cyclists.

For those who are seeking a rental which offers the ideal trifecta of location, style and value, you know finding a space which balances your wishes, wants and needs is no easy feat. Especially if you’re seeking to lease a space in the centre of the city that has some personality instead of all that ubiquitous big box blandness. If there were a property that could hit all these marks, these two urbane suites - in a Triple AAA 'hood - are ideal contenders.
