If you crave the restorative qualities of natural green space and outdoor recreation, seek easy access to the Don Valley Parkway, and desire a spacious intelligently designed residence, take note of this house-sized condominium residence on Wynford Heights Crescent at Eglinton Avenue, just east of the Don Valley Parkway.
Welcome to Wynford Place!
Wynford Place is well-situated for those who enjoy taking a stroll in nature, engage in a little occasional retail therapy, or who require speedy access to the Don Valley Parkway. Here - at Wynford Place - you have an opportunity to enjoy the effortless ease of low-maintenance living, but also have an accessible connection to all the benefits and wonder of Greater Toronto.
A Superb Accessible & Convenient Location
You’ve got lots of choices for promenade shopping very close by. A short drive away are The Shops At Don Mills, Eglinton Square, and Eglinton Town Centre. There are a handful of neighbourhood shops within a 2 minutes walk from your front door too, including a grocer, pharmacy, and, thankfully, a Tim Hortons for coffee and donut lovers (how Canadian is that, eh?). It’s not just the shops that are handy; also within walking distance are cultural institutions such as the Ismaili Centre and the spectacular Aga Khan Museum. You'll never lack an enriching outing on a Saturday afternoon!
This complex, which offers 4.5 acres of lushly landscaped grounds, provides an abundance of green space for leisure, fresh air, and exercise. And on those days when you desire a “country in the city” experience, the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area is about a 5-minute walk away, and the entrance to the Don Trail is LITERALLY 30 steps from your front door! If you’re a lover of golf - or if you’d like to take it up - you’ve got a great course right in your neighbourhood: the 9-hole Flemingdon Park Golf Course.
Just over a 5-minute drive will deliver you to Edwards Gardens, where you can take a fragrant stroll through the impressive estate-style gardens. The Toronto Botanical Gardens is headquartered here as well and offers learning experiences and programs. Also nearby is Sunnybrook Park, which boasts loads of wide-open green space, walking trails and is noted for being one of the best spots in the city to spot birds. The upcoming development of the area - dubbed Don Mills Crossing, will include an expansion of paths for cyclists and pedestrians. Most notably, the construction of the Don Mills Crossing Trail Bridge over the CP rail corridor will assist in connecting the northern part of the city to the downtown trails and paths.
There are unique dining opportunities nearby as well. At the Aga Khan Museum (closed during the pandemic), you can dine at Diwan, where executive chef Mark McEwan has created a tantalizing menu based on various cuisines of the Middle East, North Africa, and the Indian subcontinent. The dining room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and boasts 19th-century wooden panels hand-carved and painted in Damascus. For a truly private dining experience, visit Kaiseki Yu-zen Hashimoto. With only three tables, you can truly immerse yourself in Japanese culinary tradition, including tea ceremonies.
For those who commute - by car or public transport - Wynford Heights Crescent is conveniently situated near the DVP and is amazingly close to TTC connections as well. For example, in less than two minutes you can walk from your doorstep to the bus stop for the 34A Eglinton East; it takes you directly to the Yonge/Eglinton subway stop in 37 minutes. or jump on the 100A which will take you south to Bloor/Danforth Line (Broadview Station) in just 39 minutes! It’s efficient and easy! Better yet, a year from now, you'll be able to hop on the brand new Eglinton Crosstown right at Wynford, which can whisk you across the city - even to Pearson Airport! - will get you from Point A to Point B 60% faster. That's not only going to enhance your lifestyle, this value-added benefit should translate into a higher future value.
You may or may not have an immediate need in your household for schools, but having quality schools nearby is always a bonus when it comes to maintaining and growing the asset value of your home. 75 Wynford is close to Gateway Public School in Flemingdon Park, which offers programming from JK through to Grade 6. Intermediate students (Grades 6-8) have the choice of two schools in the district: Valley Park Middle School and Don Mills Middle School. Marc Garneau Collegiate offers high school (Grade 9-12) but is also well known for its TOPS Enrichment program. Also serving this district for high school is Don Mills Collegiate.
A Beloved Condominium With A Stellar Reputation
Located on the north side of Wynford Heights Crescent, and tucked among well-tended mature Canadian Shield style landscaping, this handsome 24-floor concrete condominium was built in 1982. Managed by Crossbridge Condo Services, this well-managed reputable condominium (which has a sizable reserve fund of $ 3,575,143.28 as of February 28, 2021) contains 172 suites ranging in size from 1125 square feet to 1823 square feet, which means there are only 3 to 5 exclusive suites per floor. We particularly like the bucolic backdrop of Wynford Place, not only for its expansive 4.5 acres of private green space, but for the exceptional sightlines afforded the suites, including forested views of the Charles Sauriol Conservation Area, the Anewan Greenbelt, and the Don River.
Wynford Place boasts a collection of amenities we rarely see in the newer buildings today. The fitness room and sizeable indoor pool are complemented by a whirlpool and saunas (the changing rooms are currently being renovated). Sports opportunities abound thanks to the outdoor tennis court, indoor squash court, and golf-driving range rooms. For those who enjoy crafting with their hands, there is a fully-equipped wood-working workshop (truly amazing!) Residents can throw soirees in the building party room which boasts a large smart television, WiFi internet, and a fully-equipped kitchen. A patio furnished with barbeques, dining tables, and lounge chairs is a popular spot in the warmer months. There's also a car wash bay, plenty of visitor parking for your family and friends, and a friendly 24-hour concierge.
A Sundrenched Panoramic Perch
Suite 1107 is a unique and rare-to-market 'house-in-the-sky' suite, offering approximately 1400 square feet of indoor and over 200 square feet of outdoor living space. Intelligently designed, and featuring a coveted south-west exposure, the two generous balconies, and substantial rooms are both flooded in natural light and offer panoramic views.
Crossing the threshold, the foyer features tile flooring and ample closets to conveniently store all of your outer gear for the colder seasons. Radiating from the foyer (with plush broadloom underfoot) a central hall serves the preferred split bedroom space plan which has delineated zones for entertaining, lounging, and sleeping.
An L-shaped entertainment space offers stunning south-west sky vista views. I particularly like how well-proportioned this space is, which accommodates even the largest of furnishings. The crown molding is elegant, the cream broadloom neutral, while the mirrored alcove with its open shelving in the dining area is a nice touch and a great spot for the resident cocktail bar. The views are even better enjoyed on the large covered balcony (accessed through double sliding glass doors), which is big enough to accommodate outdoor seating for a group. It would be the ideal spot for a relaxing morning cuppa while being nicely sheltered should any breeze come up.
The handsome white n' bright galley kitchen is next door, boasting easy-to-maintain tile flooring, modern white appliances, ample storage in the form of a large pantry, and plenty of prep area; it’s a winning combination for any level of culinary enthusiast! The kitchen is elevated even further by the sun-drenched eating area which opens onto the suite's west-facing second balcony. We adore the adjacent family room with wood flooring, accessed through a pair of white shuttered doors, which could easily be utilized as a formal dining room, a media room, a third bedroom, or a 'Work From Home' office depending on your needs! This is a great space that you can use in a variety of ways.
The suite's sleeping sanctuaries are at opposite ends, offering extra privacy when desired. The generously sized primary retreat is lined with a soft broadloom that will be a much more welcome greeting for your feet in the morning than cold wood or vinyl. It has large windows and plentiful storage. After all, when was the last time you saw a room-sized walk-in with organizers? The beautifully renovated ensuite is a dreamy spot for pampering and relaxation, with its glass-enclosed shower, gleaming stone-topped vanity, and modern fixtures and fittings! At the other end of the suite, the second bedroom offers a mirrored double closet (no lack of storage here!) and is conveniently situated directly adjacent to the main 4-piece washroom - perfect for family or guests! Pretty fantastic, eh?
Rounding out this perfect perch is the exclusive use of a 6x8 foot temperature-controlled locker and two deeded underground parking spaces (#27, #28). The monthly maintenance fees of $1,377.05 are inclusive of everything, including common element maintenance and repairs, reserve fund savings, building insurance, property management, common fees for 2 parking spaces, plus water, hydro, heating, cooling, cable, and high-speed internet, except for the $100 annual fee for the exclusive use locker.
Might this gracious spacious home be just the spot for you?
