Last year Vogue confirmed what our neighbourhood already knew when it named Queen West the second coolest neighbourhood in the world. In true Toronto fashion we were proud and modest in equal measure. I say “our neighbourhood” because our team is lucky enough to have our office located in Queen West. This location is a double edged sword because every time I come to the office I have an internal struggle. I could work, or I could go check out that new pop-up shop.. and then get lunch at the Drake… and oohhh… is that a new art gallery?
This brings me to our new listing, which is a beautiful condo in the heart of all this Queen West coolness. Located in the Bohemian Embassy buildings at Gladstone and Queen, this building was cool before most of the world had ever heard of this neighbourhood. #622 is a south facing, designer inspired unit; its unique layout, with almost 1000 square feet, achieves liveable space in a way that some condos only dream of. Namely, two large bedrooms, each with their own large closets, and two full bathrooms. In a world where you normally have to choose between having a large kitchen island or a dining table that seats six, this condo has room for both. You won’t leave your coats and shoes in the middle of your kitchen because of the massive hallway closet. Some other notable features of this home include, dark engineered hardwood floors, quartz counter tops, marble back splash, stainless steel appliances and custom blinds.
If you want enough space to entertain your fifteen closest friends, this place is for you. If you want a bedroom and an office, this is for you. If you want one room for you and the other for your child, this is for you. If you want to host a 100 person party, reserve the stunning party room (which is adjacent to one of the best rooftop terraces I have ever seen). If you are of a practical nature, you will appreciate that this building is very well managed, has 24/7 concierge service, alert security, visitor parking and a good reserve fund for that rainy days maintenance. All this for $495,000.
