With a lovely weekend forecast in store and 4 amazing listings I thought a fun afternoon of driving through Toronto, stopping for some fun bites, and property viewing could perhaps be on the agenda! All the houses on the tour will be open from 2-4 so plan accordingly.
Starting point: A quick bite at Yitz’s – with a full afternoon ahead a good old classic corn beef on rye is the perfect way to get some much needed nutrition. I love to add a pickle on the side.
With a full belly you are ready to see some real estate – first house on the tour is a super cute 1 bedroom unit at 455 Rosewell Unit 101. This unit is perfectly situated at Avenue and Lawrence and is steps away from all the great shops on Avenue. The space is meticulously maintained and perfect for a first time buyer or family looking for an apartment for their loved ones. With parking and locker it is offered at $324,900.
Now it is time to head down town! Figure best to start in the east and then move to the west. Next up on the tour is 176 Hiawatha Rd. This is a total change from the condo you were just at. This 2 Bed 2 Bath home features a self contained basement apartment for income, and a great spacious main floor and 2nd floor. Move in and enjoy or fix up over time to make this house your own! $399,900
With 2 stops already done perhaps a quick cold beer on a patio is in order. The Ceili Cotage is the place to go with plenty of beers on tap and a great patio right in the sun a fast cold one will be all that you need to carry onto the next 2 places.
Next up is an amazing loft at 189 Queen St East Unit 2 . Toronto Life chose this space as the condo of the week and it truly is! At over 1800 square feet this this unit has it all. Renovated from top to bottom it has many modern elements with earthy touches and finishes. A chef’s kitchen, large main floor, and private roof top terrace makes this the perfect place to entertain your summer guests. $799,000.
Last stop is in order over in the west end at 1029 King St W unit 416. This is another loft yet very different from the previous one. This 2 bed 2 bath unit is 2 storey’s and features 2 balconies between the 2 floors. With modern design and upgraded bathrooms this unit is perfect for a first time buyer or couple looking to get into the trendy King West neighbourhood.Parking is included with bike storage. $424,900.
That warps up the real estate portion of the afternoon… now that you are in King West perhaps a quick stop in Liberty Village is on the agenda. With lots of shops, places to eat, and even a little park for the kids this is a great place to wander for the rest of the afternoon.
