Part of 1 Hotel Toronto, this modern and sprawling condo suite is in a boutique building hidden from the street in bustling area of downtown Toronto.
Highlights include hardwood floors, exposed concrete ceilings, a large terrace with multiple walkouts spanning the width of the unit, full ensuites in both bedrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.
“I bought the condo from a plan in 2009. The entrance to the residential units is private, never crowded at all to pass through unnoticed to get mail or walk my dogs. Alternatively, I could meet my guests in the hotel lobby as the elevators are combined,” says homeowner Robin Kay, founder of Toronto’s Fashion Week and the Fashion Design Council of Canada.
“I chose this condo as the building is dog friendly with a well-sized park right across the street. The east-to-the west balcony across the southern front is vast, allowing for dining and lounging areas,” she said
“The condo is built so well — virtually soundproof for a bustling area. I have enjoyed the small specialty bakeries, coffee shops and many restaurants just steps away, and I often ordered from the diner downstairs,” Kay added.
There are just 25 residential units in the 15-storey, glass-and-brick building that also includes hotel rooms and office space. There is a concierge for the residential units, and shared amenities with the hotel include an outdoor pool, a gym, a party/meeting room, and a rooftop deck/garden.
The building is a short walk to many trendy restaurants and stores, with easy access to public transit, and to the Gardiner Expwy.
“What makes this condo truly special is the abundance of natural light throughout, as it is rare to find a condo in the city with south, east and west exposures. Couple that with 10-foot ceilings throughout, it creates a dramatic, gallery-like space,” says listing agent Sameer Ismail.
The suite’s front doors open to a large sitting room. Tucked on one side is a closet, a two-piece bathroom and a laundry room.
A partial wall separates the sitting room from the office which includes a hardwood floor, floor-to-ceiling windows and a garden door walkout.
The living room features a hardwood floor, floor-to-ceiling windows and garden door walkout.
Open-concept, the dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows and a hardwood floor.
The kitchen showcases a four-seater breakfast bar, quartz counters, pendant lights, a hardwood floor, and stainless steel appliances.
Highlights of the primary bedroom include a hardwood floor, a wall of closets, another built-in closet organizer with drawers, floor-to-ceiling windows, a garden door walkout and a four-piece ensuite.
The secondary bedroom features a hardwood floor, floor-to-ceiling window, and a four-piece ensuite.
