Fortunately your search may be over. If you're seeking a spacious, contemporary abode with a serious 'wow factor' that's situated in a 'hood filled with all the urban dweller essentials and amenities, this spectacular turn-key suite in a renovated detached Victorian legal triplex - just steps to Queen West in Parkdale - is a winning combination worth considering!
Welcome to 84 O’Hara Avenue!
Located in the neighbourhood of Parkdale, on the central west side of downtown, 84 O'Hara Avenue is surrounded by an eclectic mix of amenities. Just a 5-minute stroll from Queen Street West, this dynamic area offers loads of local choice for wining, dining and shopping. How about an evening out to sample some libations? The Parkdale Drink is just up the road from your front door. But for solids - sweet or savoury - check out legendary local patisserie - The Tempered Room. Delish! We also highly recommend Local Kitchen and Wine Bar for truly superb grassroots 'farm-to-table' dining. They also hold pasta-making classes if you're looking for a way to get your household interested in more than the microwave! And for the best meal of the week - Sunday brunch - it has to be Mitzi’s Cafe! We guarantee they'll quickly become your new favorite (all day!) brunch spot! And did we mention these are each just minutes by foot from O'Hara Avenue? Priceless!
For those who value a walking life, Roncesvalles and Queen West make great destinations for daily errands or for an afternoon adventure; there's always something new to discover! With sundry shopping, like a Shoppers Drug Mart and a LCBO just a short walk away, you can also complete your errands lickety-split if you're keen to stay home and nest. For a village life, head to Roncesvalles for the organic butcher, baker, florist and vegetable monger, or catch a flick at the Revue Cinema, offering both mainstream blockbusters and 'I've-never-heard-of-that' indies. And if you're keen to integrate wellness into your daily life, check out the highly-rated Boomerang Pilates and Wellness Studio - which Urbaneer's Steve Fudge has been attending for several years!
No urban lifestyle is truly complete without quality available green space in your 'hood. 87 O'Hara is less than a 10-minute walk from Sorauren Park, where there is endless leisure and outdoor opportunity. There is the Farmer’s Market, fieldhouse, playground and ice rink for outdoor exercise in the winter. Just west is expansive High Park, opened to the public in 1876 and having nearly 400 acres of space, of which one third remains in a natural state, with a rare oak savannah ecology. It features the bucolic Grenadier Pond, numerous picnic areas, hiking trails, an off-leash park, tennis courts, baseball diamonds and soccer fields plus the Jamie Bell Adventure Playground, which is a large, unique play area designed in part by children. This is the destination of choice for Spring Cherry Blossoms, Shakespeare In The Park, or tobogganing in winter with the kids!
Also about a 10-minute walk away is the Parkdale Branch of the Toronto Library, where there is in addition to an impressive book and media collection, lots of programs for the whole family. Another must-have amenity? Access to public transit is a hop skip and a jump away on Queen Street West 501 Streetcar.
This second-floor suite is ideal for those who desire an airy perch.
