Don't you love watching movies where you suddenly see a gorgeous set, like a chic contemporary loft where the elevator opens right into the space, and you say “Wow, I want one of those!”? The rooms are airy with high ceilings, acres of space and it's wrapped in enormous windows with a sun-drenched terrace.
Well, here's one of those "Pinch Me I Must Be Dreaming" properties.
Located in the Entertainment District in downtown Toronto, this building is arguably the crowning jewel of all the Freed Condominiums Developments to date.
This chic suite encompasses half of a floor plate in a 16-unit condominium at 500 Wellington Street West and Portland Streets. Set on a gracious tree-lined boulevard anchored by two elegant Squares, this intimate building for multi-millionaires is located in the central west quadrant of the city centre. It's a quick streetcar ride to the financial core or University of Toronto, a short stroll to hip King and Queen Streets West, and moments to Porter Airlines or the Gardiner Expressway for speedy access to your Muskoka cottage. In proximity to the Theatre District, Scotiabank Cinema, Harbourfront, and the Rogers Centre, and around the corner from some of the City’s finest wine bars like Gusto101 - and steps to the well-loved Le Select Bistro and the Spoke Club - this is truly living in the centre of it all.
Having around 2460 square feet of indoor living, and another 670 square feet spread over an expansive outdoor terrace, this expansive suite is literally a 'house in the sky'. While it lacks a panoramic vista, it does have a south-facing streetscape sight line on the boulevard. And if you celebrate that 'Big City New York' feel of living cheek-by-jowl, you'll appreciate strutting around this terrace to the envy of your neighbours. Especially when the barbecue is fired up!
While the location is nouveau, and not quite the cup of tea for the old-monied guard (not a bad thing, right?), this swank pad is definitely the kind of place a Trust Fund kid, or a stylish Euro-couple who have hit the big time would happily call Home. The privilege of living here does have its price tag, so you gotta have deep pockets. The monthly common fees for this $2.3m pleasure pad are near $1500 per month but that's just the price of admission for living fabulous, right?
Offered for sale at $2,299,000, if you'd like to learn more contact John Fortney at Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd. Brokerage.
