Located west of Bathurst Street, south of College on Claremont Avenue in 'Little Italy', this stylish towne is placed amongst all the best amenities for urban life. Superbly situated, this residence is just steps to either the 505 or the 506 streetcars serving Dundas West and College Streets. For those who love their Stoli, it's two blocks south of the Liquor Store, and for those who love their food there are some pretty swell restaurants including Woodlot, DaiLo, newcomer Bar Raval, and Giancarlo's Wine Bar on College Street. Just south on Dundas West we often hit up below Campagnollo and The Black Hoof for culinary treats! Music lovers will revel in the live funk and grooving beats of The Orbit Room (or pick up some vinyl at June Records), and movie fans will delight in the Royal repertory cinema which is located at the top of the street. Have you been to the fantastic taco spot ‘La Carnita’ or Rodney Bower’s ‘Hey Meatball’ sandwich shop yet? Yum!
For those who celebrate a walking life, this property has a Walking Score of 97 out of 100! To the south of this contempo dwell is hip Dundas Street West and Queen West Village. To the north of College Street is Little Korea on Bloor, and Harbord Street is Toronto's current epicentre for a culinary explosion of five star restaurants. Neighbourhood amenities serving daily life here include a superb butcher and indulgent baker, plus an abundance of home furnishing shops, art galleries and clothing retailers. Even more amazing is how this residence is steps from Trinity-Bellwoods Park with its weekly organic market, leash-free dog zone, skating rink, tennis courts and community centre with swimming pool. Plus it’s also a short stroll to Ossington Avenue (we love Philip Sparks Tailored Goods) where a burgeoning art gallery mise-en-scène and stylin’ social stops are popping up amidst the traditional Portuguese bakers and butchers still serving their long-established clientele. It truly doesn’t get better than this!
Not only does this swanky pad appeal to the eye, but it has a pragmatic draw as well. If you're well-versed in the world of Toronto real estate, this location subscribes to the tried and true real estate mantra known to promote and propel property value: “location, location location”. Specifically in this case, this means: 1) proximity to village shopping amenities, 2) a short stroll to green space, and 3) easy access to public transportation.
Welcome to 221 Claremont Street.
One of 45 freehold townhouses which sit on a collectively-owned underground parking garage, this three storey residence was designed by Richard Wengle Architects with the interiors by beloved Cecconi-Simone was completed in 2013. With ten foot ceilings on the main, crisp clean lines and luxury fittings, this is the kind of domicile that appeals to busy professionals and down-scaling zoomers who want to skip the elevator of condo-living and walk right out their own front door every morning.
Featuring 3 bedrooms and 3 baths at nearly 1900 square feet, this modern space has dark wood plank floors, an abundance of floor-to-ceiling windows, and a snazzy chef's kitchen with white Caesarstone counters and gas cooking. It's a setting befitting those who revel in pared down living while showcasing their contemporary art collection. We love how the kitchen takes centre stage, and the perfect patio with gas barbecue. And don't miss the ultimate master retreat with indulgent spa bath, walk-in closet and sun-drenched urbanscape.
Can we say Swag Pad?
Really though.... here you have none of the hassles of maintaining a typical aging 100 year old city house, but all of the merits of terra firma. While the lot is only 60 feet deep, it's just the right size to lounge with your cocktail and barbecue.
Occupancy is 90 Days.
