When you're on a search for a new place to call home, there comes a point where the line between needs and wants gets blurred because of the vast increase in quality of life when you have access to everything - amenities, convenience and style. An unwillingness to compromise emerges - especially once you've come to the realization you don’t have to! And how exciting is that?!
Welcome to 638 1/2 Euclid Avenue.
Euclid Avenue, and its sisters Markham Street and Palmerston Boulevard, are a trilogy of tree-lined avenues that self-assuredly incorporate history and a quiet elegance to create much of the dynamic spirit that encircles this sought-after location. Once considered one of the wealthier pockets of Toronto, and featuring some of the oldest merchant class housing in the city, these grand homes buzz with history and charm, no doubt with stories to tell from their coveted point of view over the generations. Today, these streets radiate intellectual energy, mingling with style and panache, as reflected in its residents, in the evolution of the housing stock, and in the sublime amenities that encircle this location.
This semi-detached dwell under a canopy of mature trees is primely located just south of Bloor St. West, placing it within a stone’s throw of the effervescence of urban living, but just far enough removed from the hub-bub to create that sense of peace and calm that a quality residential area provides.
It’s a well-known fact that the holy grail of real estate is “location, location, location”. That is the unmistakable beauty of 638 1/2 Euclid Avenue. You’ve got the visual allure and undeniable charm of historic housing coupled with the necessities of life we all most desire, right at your door step - and as someone seeking a quality property to lease, how fabulous is that?
For dining out and meeting up with friends and family, some of urbaneer’s faves are a pleasant stroll away. On Bloor Street we love to nosh at Insomnia Café while sampling from their extensive martini menu. We’ve also been known to savour a solid cup of coffee at the Green Beanery. At the bottom of the block on College Street we're fans of DaiLo Restaurant, Woodlot Restaurant, and Bar Raval for culinary excellence. And if you love board games as much as we do, there's engaging Snakes and Lattes where you can play and dine to your heart’s content, using one of the thousands of games they have in their library.
Speaking of libraries, the Palmerston Branch of the Toronto Public Library is less than a five-minute walk away. When’s the last time you indulged in the guilty pleasure of a Saturday afternoon surrounded with comfy chairs and books? This kind of leisure is just a hop, skip and a jump away.
Yearn for green space? Pick a direction, and you’ll find lovely green pockets in this urban landscape. Expansive Christie Pits Park has something for everyone: loads of wide open green space, an artificial ice rink, tobogganing hills, baseball diamonds, children’s playground, splash pad, wading pool and community garden. There is more green space for taking in the great outdoors nearby at Seaton Park as well.
Bathurst Station is less than a 5-minute walk away, a neighbourhood gateway to get wherever to need to be with little fuss.
Are kids coming along for the adventure? About a 10-minute walk away is Clinton Street Junior School, serving JK through Grade Six, and offers gifted as well as special programming to accommodate children with different learning styles. The area Intermediate school, King Edward Junior School, is about a 15-minute walk away. Right around the block is Harbord Collegiate Institute, where they set a framework of “social justice, equity and the environment for a dynamic education.”
