If you’re looking for warmth, comfort, and style, plus heaps of luxurious detail, then this upper level rental suite is ideal for you!
Welcome to the Upper Suite of 565 Markham Street.
While the features of this impressive rental suite are certainly what will contribute heavily to a superior quality of life, as any urbanite worth their salt will tell you, urban living is not about living in isolation - it’s about living through integration - surrounded by spectacular amenities. Which is why the 'location, location, location' mantra of real estate is important for any tenant.
Located south of Bloor just west of Bathurst in the South Annex / Little Italy quadrant, this neighbourhood rings loud and clear with that coveted vibe where history and the future intersect and linger in the present - where architectural tradition is honoured and respected, while the funky and hip seep through, both in sight and sound. The streetscape incorporates a mix of substantial Edwardian and Victorian merchant class mansions on majestic treed streets, while being just steps to new mid-rise condominium housing which is supporting more retail and cafe businesses than breed more life into this established neighbourhood.
Strategically positioned in support of a pedestrian lifestyle, this home sits just south of Bloor West and Bathurst. Public transit is around the corner at Bathurst station. There is a good representation of school boards and school types that will appeal to all kinds of students, including the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, Clinton Street Junior PS, King Edward Jr & Sr PS, Harbord CI, Central Technical School and Central Commerce Collegiate.
Grocers and character retailers dot the street, offering interest- both visually and in terms of merchandise, and an assortment of cool restaurants, cafes and bars are at your doorstep. It's a straight run down with a quick cab ride to the Island Airport, a speedy bike ride to the University of Toronto, and just steps to the Christie Pits for those seeking nature and play. How fantastic is that?
The Victory Café is a cheery neighbour, just up the street, serving up a laid-back atmosphere along with craft beer and the chance for good times with good friends. Do you like your food spicy with a side of the spiritual? Stroll up the street to Southern Accents, which offers Louisiana-style cuisine, a 1940s bar, and psychic readings. Crave a juicy burger? The Acme Burger Company is nearby. Two of your favourites include steamy coffee and a spirited evening around a favourite board game with friends? Check out Snakes and Lattes Café on Bloor St. W. Feel like clubbing, or taking in live music? Coda is within walking distance.
The Upper Suite features a separate entrance from the front foyer. The extra-wide glassed-in staircase draws you upward into an open concept entertainment zone that is spacious, yet intimate. The trifecta of dark wood floors, exposed brick, and wood beamed ceilings bring a warmth and richness to the space that is both inviting and captivating. The kitchen, open to the living/dining area, offers a complimentary splash of stainless steel, polished fixtures and floating shelves that's perfect for a resident chef. An indulgent 3-piece washroom with heated towel racks, a sun-drenched bedroom with east facing windows, plus a second bedroom - or optional den - with a walk-out to a cedar deck overlooking the rear yard completes this level, in what is already an impressive layout.
We adore the second west facing terrace that overlooks the tree canopy and merchant class architecture, accessed from the entertainment zone. It's definitely one more feature that will entice even the most pragmatic of buyers, though we find the true pìece de résistance is the floating staircase. Outfitted in glass and stainless steel, this gravity-defying walkway brings you past a sky-lit landing and on to two more expansive bedrooms, both outfitted with closets, built-ins and 3-piece ensuite baths. How amazing is that?
This property has been substantially renovated, top to bottom, and is a rare opportunity indeed! It is available for a one year lease or longer at $5000 per month plus utilities, or the owners will consider a six month rental at $7500 per month inclusive.
