Enjoy the benefits of living proximate to high-demand Cabbagetown: its scenic beauty derived from what the New York Times once called 'the largest collection of Victorian homes in North America' lovingly restored under the watchful eye of the Cabbagetown Preservation Association; and the strong community spirit evidenced by such displays as the Cabbagetown Fall Festival in September.

The prime location near Shuter & Parliament Streets is the definition of convenience! Walk to work downtown or to school at Ryerson University or George Brown College. The morning jog is easy with Moss Park just two short blocks over, or enjoy the beauty of 13-acre Allan Gardens' historic botanical conservatory just ten minutes' walk north. Residents won't need a car for the everyday essentials, as it's a 10-minute walk to the Eaton Centre for serious shopping. There is also a 24-hour Dominion on Gould for the ultimate in grocery convenience.

One of the nearby highlights is Riverdale Park, home of Riverdale Farm, a recreational hot spot for the whole family. The farm has a variety of animals and demonstrations, and the park has sports fields and serves as an access point to the Lower Don Recreation Trail. In addition to fantastic shops, restaurants and services, such as the Menagerie specialty pet shop, Parliament Street is home to the Cabbagetown Community Arts Centre and the Public Library. Walk to the landmark Canon Theatre, Yonge Street entertainment and the Eaton Centre, or to the north the Gay Village is a short walk for great shops, restaurants and nightlife.

Though one parking space is included, getting around is easy with so much within walking distance – and the Dundas Subway station is just a ten minute walk away. The Dundas and Queen streetcars also run 24 hours, connecting with Yonge/University subway line, while the nearby Sherbourne bus accesses the Bloor Line. The DVP is approximately five minutes away and the Gardiner is a short drive to get in and out of the city.

This six year old end unit has been thoroughly upgraded and is in impeccable condition. The dramatic entry hall boasts 12' ceilings and an open style coat closet with a display area above it. Lovely gleaming Mirage oak floors run throughout the principal rooms and staircase. The living room is already wired for a 5.1 home theatre system (negotiable), and is softly lit by halogen pot lights. There is a walk-out to the deck for enjoying an evening barbecue or drinks with friends. The open concept dining room features a custom built-in china cabinet with back lighting.

The cheery eat-in kitchen also features the 12 foot ceilings and includes a convenient windowed breakfast area and plenty of counter space and wood cabinetry with under-counter halogen lighting, and best of all are the quality Jenn-Air appliances included: a Pro-Style Slide-in range with grill and griddle, Ultimate quiet dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, and over-the-range microwave.

An oak staircase leads to the second floor hall, where designer Italian wallpaper and Murray Feiss ceiling lights complement the Mirage oak flooring. The professionally decorated master bedroom is carpeted and includes a wall-to-wall closet with organizers as well as a separate linen closet – a practical solution to overflowing closet syndrome! The second bedroom is also carpeted with plenty of closet space and organizers. The chic 4 piece bathroom has retro décor, with a pedestal sink, and tiling, and a Murray Feiss 3-light vanity light and lovely mirror. The adjacent laundry area has a stacking washer & dryer and also features dual service for gas or electric laundry machines.

The finished basement allows for many possibilities! A three piece bath with extra large glass-enclosed shower stall is convenient when using the basement as an office space, recreation room, work out area (nice high ceilings) or bedroom. There is a handy storage cupboard under the stairs.

Other benefits of this urban gem include: central vacuum, custom built enclosed garbage room and numerous enclosed storage closets in the garage, gas & electric BBQ feed on deck, energy efficient gas boiler is on lease to own option and will be paid in full by closing, hardwired alarm system with wireless expansion & remote control!
