Perhaps you're a 'make-it-happen' millennial looking for a swag pad on one of Toronto's main arteries, or an executive family who don't have time for the maintenance of a house with a yard. Or perhaps you're a downscaling Zoomer seeking turn-key swish in proximity to your Riverdale kids - and grandkids. Either way, this luxury Toronto penthouse is definitely a place that caught our eyes!
We gotta say here at Houseporn.ca, that what we love about this Playter Estates/Riverdale penthouse location is that it's both in the middle of everything - surrounded by all of life’s everyday amenities - and at the same time removed from the big city fray. There is a vibrant sense of cohesion that comes with this community-centric neighbourhood, which lends a whole other dimension to our quality of life. Beyond the vibe that connectedness offers, this Minto Skyy penthouse is flush with nearby amenities, giving lucky residents options for food, drink and proximity to public transportation, with TTC access nearby. Plus the school is so highly coveted that only those children living in its catchment area can attend.
LEED-certified, the Minto Skyy condo - completed in 2010 - has a total of 198 suites ranging from 466 to 2788 square feet. The building features a well-appointed lobby and one of the more courteous and attentive concierges in the City. The amenities include an exceptional gym, which is fully equipped with cardio machines, an aerobics studio with yoga and exercise classes, free weights, and his and her change rooms with lockers and showers. There's also an entertainment lounge, library and media screening room, plus a gas BBQ on the outdoor,landscaped terrace and a professionally styled gourmet kitchen and dining area. Plus there's guest parking!
This dreamy penthouse offers almost 3000 square feet of luxe indoor living space as well as a jaw-dropping spectacular 1200 square foot terrace with 360 degree vistas oriented to the south-west. With views over the Don Valley to the city and Lake Ontario beyond, this is about living the clouds on an eye-catching curved corner perched on the 26th floor. There's a lot of magic here, with two bedrooms and a den (or optional third bedroom), 2.5 baths including a sumptuous master ensuite (yes to that soaker tub!), and a contemporary space plan that is an entertainer's paradise. What knocks my socks off? It's the chef's kitchen with breakfast area wrapped in windows connecting to the 'everything-I-wish-I-had' terrace. Can we say cocktails next to the firepit, followed by a soak in the 12-person hot tub, before we fire up the barbecue for late night snacks? Fully loaded with a 2-way gas fireplace, four televisions, terrace speakers, and a Creston Home Automation System which controls the heating/cooling, lighting, media equipment, motorized window coverings and even the fireplace! With two lockers and two car parking, this is a perfect paradise!
What could be better than that?
