Admiration is a subjective experience, but is no doubt elevated when you can take grandeur and make it accessible by making it refreshingly down to earth. This is precisely the experience one has when wandering the sublime streets of the quietly elegant and intelligent neighbourhood of The Annex. Can you imagine enmeshing yourself in such a community, where your own roots contribute to this sense of history and good taste? And what if your home was an extension of that divine combination of rich history and rich visuals? Residing in a neighbourhood that originally housed Toronto's wealthiest residents which has evolved with its own momentum over the years to be "the" epicentre of urban cool is an exciting prospect!
Welcome to 336 Davenport Road, Suite 301!
One of the Annex neighbourhood's most well-regarded condominium developments is 'Residences Of Designer's Walk' at 330-338 Davenport Road. Connected to Designers Walk, an influential centre of Interior Design and Fashion Showrooms, these contemporary yellow-brick condominiums can be found just south of Dupont Street. Developed by Designer's Walk Inc. and completed in 1999, these boutique residences stand at four-storeys each and offer a total of 24 townhouse style loft units. They feature 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, bright living areas with a mix of open-concept and enclave kitchens, plus pleasant and private outdoor patios. From one to two-level townhouse styles, with large windows in the living rooms and bedrooms, plus balconies and outdoor patios, these residences champion natural sunlight and personal space to create bright, inspiring homes for urban professionals seeking a walkable neighbourhood with conveniences and area amenities within easy reach. One of the features of these Toronto lofts we particularly adore are the private outdoor patios found in many of the suites. Residences of Designers Walk have the benefit of close-at-hand TTC access at Davenport and Dupont, with two bus routes running west to the subway line and east to Bay Street. Combined with living close to our city's finest cultural attractions like the ROM, The Royal Conservatory of Music, Hot Docs Cinema, Lee’s Palace and the youthful campus vibe of the University of Toronto, you'll find an intoxicating mix of established neighbourhood charms and an endless array of quaint cafes, cozy restaurants, and fun nightlife. For those wishing to embrace a pedestrian lifestyle, the Annex neighbourhood is also very walkable, along convenient bicycle-lanes on Wellesley Street and College Street. If travelling fast is more your style, there are three main subway stations along Bloor Street that will connect you to anywhere in the city, which is why it's no wonder the units at Designer's Walk so rarely come available!
If you enjoy quiet days outdoors, love open air exercise, or simply occasionally need to escape the 'bright lights, big city' vibe to kick back amongst green things, lush and recently revitalized Ramsden Park is just a couple blocks east, with its new tennis courts, kids playground, wading pool and walkways. Want to dine out? There are plenty of delish restaurant choices only a few steps away - Big Crow Grill House, L'Unita Enoteca and Ristorante Sotto Sotto, just to name a few. Grab your morning coffee at (our fave!) Haute Coffee located at 153 Dupont Street. Time to lay in a few supplies? Plentiful pantry staples and fresh food items can be found at Food Depot which is only a few steps around the corner. For those days you just want to be indoors, look no further than Spadina Historic House Museum, Casa Loma and The Bata Shoe Museum to help keep you occupied for hours. If you're in the mood for some entertainment, Cineplex Entertainment and The ROM Theatre are just a few of your nearby choices. This is truly living in the centre of it all!
We adore Suite 301. Located on the third floor with both south and north exposures and with rare-to-find direct-to-suite elevator access, this 1075 square foot (according to plans) sun-drenched space features crown mouldings in the living and dining areas, wood floors, 12' baseboards throughout, a gas fireplace with stone mantle and 9'10" ceilings. Entering directly from the elevator, one steps into the open-concept living and dining area complete with a walk out to a bijou south-facing balcony. Large windows and a unique leaded-glass architectural bay window (a perfect spot for your favourite fresh-cut blooms!) fill the space with abundant light. The chef's kitchen with updated stainless steel appliances including new gas range, stone countertops and backsplash of creamy white subway tile and stainless steel welcomes the creativity of the home chef. The hallway to the bedrooms features a generous coat closet, secondary staircase exits, amazingly convenient in-unit garbage chute, and utility closets which house the stacking laundry and separately, the furnace/AC and hot water tank. Opposite is the 3-piece bathroom with shower, ideally situated for guests. The master bedroom features it's own balcony walkout (the balcony is shared with the second bedroom), a large double closet, generous overhead storage, and a full 4-piece ensuite luxe spa-style bath with separate soaking tub and shower - a unique, private and indulgent space. How fabulous is that? At the end of the hall is the second bedroom which, in addition to a double closet, has it's own operable window and walkout access to the balcony.
This condominium is rare in that it's one of only two suites per floor - there are only 24 units total in these three buildings - and also due to it's north and south exposures which fill the living spaces with natural light and when opened up in warmer months, create a natural fresh cross-breeze through the suite. Offered for $3300 monthly + hydro and gas and available for occupancy on March 15th, this loft is available for a minimum one year lease. Included at no additional charge is a locker and garage parking for one vehicle located in the garages accessed via the laneway at the rear of the building - ask us for details! Whether for work or play, day or night, all the best of Downtown Toronto and urban living is at your finger tips when you live at the Residences of Designer's Walk - might this just be the ideal spot for you?
