Any experienced home hunter will tell you that finding 'the one' is as much to do with location as it does with the features offered by the home itself. That’s because home isn’t just about shelter, but about enhancing your lifestyle. So, the next time you close your eyes and picture yourself relaxing in the peace and quiet of your dream dwell, let your imagination drift beyond the walls of the home, to the community, amenities, and neighbourhood features that will support and nourish you. Because, for urban living, there is untold value placed on both location and the proximity to amenities.
When your property search matrix lists a calibre locale, a top-notch home and a reasonable price, it can be a tall order to hit all three, especially in Toronto. Luckily, we've just found a match.
Welcome to Suite 519, 36 Lisgar Street!
Located south of Queen and north of Sudbury Street, 36 Lisgar Street is a 660 unit condominium complex comprising two sleek towers featuring abundant glass and contemporary lines, rising above its namesake, Triangle Park. The Edge on Triangle Park offers an affordable opportunity to get the very best of urban living, both onsite and with close access to cool amenities. Future buyers will not only take note of this unit’s thoughtful layout and location, they will appreciate the many perks they are getting with this building. Onsite amenities include a gym/ fitness centre, rooftop patio, 24/7 Concierge & Security, a lounge, party room, games room and media room. A lush courtyard connects the towers of these two buildings, providing onsite green space and a pastoral respite, right in the urban core. Common areas are contemporary and crisp. As an extra bonus, the Condo Board recently levied a special assessment to raise money to clear a debt from their books, cleaning up their status certificate. The seller of Suite 519 is paying this assessment, so the Buyer of this lovely unit won’t have to shoulder that cost, adding additional value.
I love how Queen West, Dundas West and Ossington are dotted with character shops, bars and restaurants, which don clever names and hip patrons. No matter which direction you head, there's plenty of dining, drinking and an eclectic mix of purveyors who showcase the latest trends and styles. On Ossington I'm a fan of local hot spots like Bellwoods Brewery, Mamakas and Salt Wine Bar. On Queen West you'll find me perched at the bar of The Drake, or on their roof top terrace! And, if you are a foodie like I am, check out Antler on Dundas West which is receiving accolades! Up late, or early, and craving an authentic milkshake? Head to the 24 hour Lakeview Diner for the ultimate in comfort food in a vintage diner setting!
This home offers proximity to Trinity Bellwoods Park, one of the city's most dynamic urban green spaces comprising 36 acres! With a community recreation centre (including swimming pool!), dog walking zone, weekly organic market, tennis courts, meandering hillocks, and loads of community events, this park is all you desire in an urban environment! You're also steps to public transit here. Walk south to Queen West for the 501 east and westbound streetcar, north to the 505 east and west streetcar (to link to the Union Pearson Airport Express!), or the 63 Ossington bus (with bike racks) will take you north to the Bloor subway line!
This two-bedroom, well-appointed unit has been owner-occupied since it was first built; this home’s numerous features are in place to make your life easier, like custom built-ins, already installed flat-screen TVs with wall brackets included, and deeded parking. This redefines 'turn-key'! If, for whatever reason, the second bedroom's double-decker-double-bed is just too much bed for you, it's possible for the seller to adjust into an upper bed with the lower bed made into a desk. Be sure to ask about this if you have a preference!
Upon entering the thoughtfully laid out unit you'll find the second bedroom on your right from the hall. This room includes a double-bunk-bed and a built-in vanity, along with a wall-mounted flat screen, inviting for those lazy lie-in days. Between the second bedroom and the master bedroom you'll find both the four-piece washroom and the in-suite laundry. The Master bedroom's custom closet organizer will keep your things accessible and organized. You’ll appreciate that virtually all of the lighting in the suite is controlled by intelligent wall dimmer switches- perfect mood lighting. A custom breakfast bar anchors the space in the combined kitchen and living room, which extends onto the suite’s fifth floor balcony. This outdoor space is above Abell Street, which is low-traffic, mainly pedestrian avenue with views of the murals to the South and Queen Street to the North, creating a quiet but visually rich urban backdrop.
