Something sublime emerges when you pair function and style with a vibrant location that enhances the overall essence of your everyday life. After all, the joys of domesticity are not limited to the four walls that cocoon you; the village neighbourhood in which you reside is one more concentric circle that defines your urban life. When we find our place in a community, we’re both supported and nurtured every day.
If you’re seeking the pleasure of domestic bliss perfectly paired with the comfort of connection, this spacious semi-detached home with onsite parking built in 2001 could be your next Home Sweet Home!
It Takes A Village
In our hectic urban lives, what we covet the most is time. The more convenient our day-to-day is, the more opportunities we have to be present – and savour the gift of living in the moment surrounded by the people we love. And while many of us embrace the hustle and bustle that city living offers, it’s less frantic when you can stroll, cycle, or hop on public transit and arrive at your destination on time rather than facing the unpredictability of Toronto traffic.
This is one of the priceless value-added benefits of living in The Junction’s St. Clair West Village Enclave! Developed by Tribute Homes in 2001, this lovely collection of 352 freehold dwellings, located near St. Clair Avenue West & Keele Street, encapsulates the concept of New Urbanism, an urban design movement that began in the 1980s that promotes environmentally friendly habits by creating walkable neighbourhoods in proximity to public transit, shopping, and green space. Basically, it’s like replicating all the qualities we love about our century-old cityscape but also having the benefit of living in a newer dwelling designed for contemporary life.
How amazing is that?
Do you want life-enhancing amenities within a stone’s throw of your next Home? Whether it’s date night, family Fridays, or simply a casual lunch with your laptop, there are excellent options at hand to satisfy your needs and mood.
Craving fabulous flavour? You’ve got tons of dinner spots with excellent fare to choose from. Our recommendations are many, with Las San Sivar near the top for its sumptuous Salvadoran cuisine. Great Portuguese food can be found at Bairrada Churrasqueira Grill, and if you’re sweet on sushi, ask the chef at Kiri Sushi for Omakase – and prepare to be delighted! If you’re running late or on the go, you can’t go wrong picking up a fresh and flavourful wood-fired pizza at Fuoco Mia Panini Food Truck. And for those who love the comfort of the familiar, there are also a ton of well-known chains up and down St. Clair West.
Two consumables that folks are very particular about are beer and coffee. For your java fix, may we recommend the Stockyards Grind? Everyone has a unique take on what makes for the perfect java fix but in our book Stockyards brew is top-notch! Time for a casual happy hour pint? Look no further than Hole in the Wall or the taproom at the Junction Craft Brewery or High Park Brewery. Their vibes are perfect to kick off a lively (or chill!) Friday night with friends!
Speaking of friends, it’s worth a wander over to the Nations Experience, which gives a whole new context to “foodertainment”. This enormous 155,000-square-foot complex has a huge grocery selection, playground, arcade, gourmet food court, and grab-and-go options. The options are many – and delicious too!
We understand that a big day-to-day stressor is ensuring you have the essentials on hand – for yourself and your family. Well, you can relax! Errands can be done in a snap, with all the best Big Box stores and must-have services just steps away, including Metro, Walmart, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Bulk Barn, Michaels, Pet Valu, Rona, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Staples LCBO, the Beer Store, Service Ontario and more! It’s crazy convenient! And of course, Stock Yards Village Shopping Centre has a host of well-known retailers, ready to assist you with a little retail therapy!
Another life-enhancing amenity on the must-have list of urban dwellers is easy access to green space. Just down the road, Maple Claire Park is a favourite with families in the neighbourhood, in big part due to the super-cool (literally) splash pad – a saving grace in the summer heat! Expansive Gaffney Park is also a convenient escape for Junction St. Clair West villagers, with a mature tree canopy, a bike trail, an outdoor gym, a playground, and even an outdoor chess game! There’s something to satisfy each family member on a sunny Saturday afternoon, whether it be a walk with the pup, a picnic with the kids, or simply some peace and quiet to work on your physical fitness.
Whether your household immediately requires them, having good schools in the neighbourhood is a ‘plus’, because this is something future buyers always hold dear. 2148 St. Clair Avenue West has a number of reputable schools close to home. For grades JK through to Grade 8, there is Harwood PS, with a history and a role in educating neighbourhood children since 1928. For high school there is York Collegiate, offering regular and advanced (AP) programming.
Although you’ve got everything you need in your immediate vicinity, options abound when you’re in proximity to public transit; just outside your front door (literally! – you can stay inside during a winter snowstorm until the bus pulls up!) you can hop on transit and be whisked off to work, to an outing with friends, or simply to some new part of the city you’ve yet to explore. Plus it will soon be a 9-minute walk to the St Clair-Old Weston Go Station – set to be completed by 2026. Not that’s a property-value booster!
We’re fans of New Urbanism. When the foundation of building a community is built on principles that promote walkability and accessibility in dense, mixed-use neighbourhood, you’re getting much more utility and livability out of an area – at home, at work, and at play! It’s what we value in communities like The Junction’s SCWV!
Location! Check! Check! Checkmate!
With Sizzle & Spice, This Home Is Everything Nice!
What goes well with a Triple A location? An exemplary semi-detached home that marries comfort, style and spaciousness. This 2-storey dwelling with a finished lower level offers just under 1800 square feet of intelligently designed family-functional living space, in addition to a sunny, fully-fenced low-maintenance garden!
This property has serious curb appeal! Stone pavers draw you directly toward the front door, but don’t miss the porch pad shaded by a mature tree and surrounded by manicured gardens – lovely! It’s a perfect perch for people-watching and communing with your neighbours. Beyond the welcoming bright red front door, you’ll ascend a flight of stairs, to be met with the heart of the home: a series of interconnected convivial entertainment spaces! OMGolly!
Seriously, what we love about this 22-year-old home is that ALL of the principal rooms are generous. You’ll have oodles of square footage here that can be tailored to your wishes, wants, and needs! The lounge boasts large south-facing windows that flood the space with natural light and offer views of the front garden! The space currently used as a sitting area by the current owner is well-suited as a formal dining area, but it’s a versatile space that could be used as a play area or an open work-from-home office space. How would you use this space? You decide!
Beyond the 2-piece powder room and storage closet is the oversized opening into a spacious sun-kissed kitchen and family room (currently set up as a dining room) that offers the perfect balance of formality and approachability allowing for simultaneous activities and conversations without compromising flow. The tiled modern kitchen offers plenty of space to cook, eat, and mingle, boasting stone counters, updated appliances, abundant cabinetry, and a stone-topped island with extra storage. It’s a great set-up for the resident chef to prepare their culinary creations; you’ll love that the space is shared by a family zone, so you can talk and interact with family or guests, or keep an eye on the kids and their homework, all while you cook! And, as lovers of natural light, we appreciate the afternoons’ sunbeams streaming in from the generous windows and door leading to the low-maintenance garden and onsite parking!
Ascending to the second floor, you’ll find three bright family-sized bedrooms each featuring ample storage and durable laminate floors underfoot. On your way up, note the bright stairwell lit by transom windows; its open void is perfect for a transitional art gallery, or perhaps an exhibition of your favourite family photos.
First, your shoulders will reflexively relax when entering the primary bedroom, which is well-proportioned and warm, exuding a sense of comfort and domestic bliss. Double closets flank either side of you as you enter the 4-piece ensuite! Second, down the hall (which is home to a rare double linen closet!), you’ll find two equally proportioned bedrooms with large windows and double closets; kids won’t have any reason to wrestle over these two identical rooms. The upper level is completed by a refreshing 4-piece family bath that they’ll share.
Significantly increasing the amount of living space, the lower level is fully finished. With laundry at the bottom of the landing, this lends itself easily to an income offset – or a suite for extended family or your moody teen. Already delineated with its own separate entrance – this level hosts an eat-in kitchen with a suite of appliances, a 4-piece washroom, and a large room with closets that can be a spacious bedroom or a media room.
Is it wine-o-clock, yet? After a hectic day, we like to decompress lounging with our favourite beverages and the sun kissing our faces. And no, we don’t want to mow a lawn! Fortunately, this residence recently underwent a landscape refresh front and back with the installation of warm wood fencing and quality hardscaping. So welcome to the perfect sun-soaked family refuge that will contain your laughing barking brood throughout the seasons. Adjacent you’ll find lane-accessed surface parking where you can back in and effortlessly unload your purchases right into the kitchen next to the one-car garage – a premium feature – for your vehicle, or for reinvention as a workshop or a satellite home studio!
