A Classic Contemporary Boutique Condo In The Residences Of Designer’s Walk

offered at $964,900

We love wandering the sublime streets of the quietly elegant Annex neighbourhood. Can you imagine ensconcing yourself amidst such a picturesque community, where the sense of history is palpable? You’re connected to the area’s storied past through the shared experience of the city’s original domestic architecture dating 150 years of community-building.

Not to mention, this is a neighbourhood that was originally home to many of Toronto’s original merchant class residents who displayed their success through some incredible visually arresting domestic architecture, but has since evolved over the decades to become the epicenter of the cultural intelligentsia. It’s a dynamic place to engage as part of your everyday life!

Welcome to 338 Davenport Road, Suite 202!

One of the Annex neighbourhood’s most well-regarded boutique condominium developments is ‘Residences Of Designer’s Walk’ at 330-338 Davenport Road. An extension of neighbouring Designers Walk, an influential centre of Interior Design and Fashion Showrooms, these contemporary yellow-brick condominiums can be found just west of Avenue Road. Developed by Designer’s Walk Inc. and completed in 2000, these three ‘brownstones’ stand four-storeys each and are home to a collection of 24 contemporary urban townes in total that range from 946 to 1626 square feet, many with direct elevator access, and private secure garages.

The units have some exceptional features like 10-foot ceilings, wood floors, sun-kissed double-exposure floor plans with architectural flourishes, plus private outdoor spaces. From one to two-level styles, with expansive windows and intelligent designs, these residences champion natural sunlight and personal space to create bright, inspiring homes for urban professionals seeking a walkable neighbourhood with conveniences and area amenities within easy reach.

For those wishing to avoid an auto-reliant lifestyle, The Residences of Designers Walk have the benefit of a short stroll to the Dupont Subway Station on the Yonge-University-Spadina Line, or hop on the bus lickety-split to the Bay Street Subway on the Bloor Line, connecting you anywhere east, west, south or north! In fact, it has a Transit Score of 89! It’s also a leisurely stroll to our city’s finest cultural attractions like the ROMThe Royal Conservatory of Music, and the campus vibe of the University of Toronto, while Avenue Road has some great cafes, along with the neighbourhood of Yorkville (five minutes east from your doorstep!), and Bloor Street West which boasts an intoxicating mix of established and an endless array of local purveyors, quaint cafes, cozy restaurants, and fun nightlife. The Walk Score for this property is 88!

Love to cycle? There are now 2.3 kilometres of separated bike lanes between Adelaide Street West and Bloor Street West, with the bike lane extending up Avenue Road to Davenport. Check out the new Bloor Street, University Avenue, and Queen’s Park Circle bike lanes that catapulted the Bike Score to 97 this year. Plus, we gave A Gold Star For Toronto’s Green Line Linear Park, a new east-west linear park system along the Dupont hydro-electric corridor that will connect adjacent neighbourhoods and expand the open space network in Midtown and West Toronto. It’s no wonder the units at Designer’s Walk so rarely come available!

If you enjoy quiet days outdoors, love open-air exercise, or simply occasionally need to escape the ‘bright lights, big city’ vibe to kick back amongst green things, lush and recently revitalized Ramsden Park is just a couple of blocks east, with its new tennis courts, kids playground, wading pool and walkways. Want to dine out nearby? There are plenty of delish restaurant choices only a few steps away – Big Crow Grill House, L’Unita Enoteca, and Ristorante Sotto Sotto, just to name a few. Grab your morning coffee at (our fave!) Haute Coffee is located at 153 Dupont Street. Time to lay in a few supplies? Plentiful pantry staples and fresh food items can be found at Food Depot which is only a few steps around the corner. For those days you just want to be indoors, look no further than Spadina Historic House MuseumCasa Loma, and The Bata Shoe Museum to help keep you occupied for hours. If you’re in the mood for some entertainment, Cineplex Entertainment in the Manulife Centre and The ROM Theatre are just a few of your nearby choices. This is truly living in the centre of it all!

Suite 202 is a chic stylish 2-bed 2-bath second-level suite with 1185 square feet of indoor-outdoor living – and yes, it boasts direct elevator access and its own private garage! It features an elegant L-shaped entertainment zone with high baseboards and crown moldings, a gas fireplace with a gorgeous mantle, a charming bespoke leaded bay window, and a south-facing balcony. The intelligently design U-shaped kitchen is well-appointed with ample storage, stone counters, and rare-to-find-gas cooking. I love the well-proportioned master bedroom with custom California closet and indulgent spa bath, and the generous second bedroom with murphy bed, both of which walk out to a shared balcony!

In a boutique condo like this, the common fees of $916.84 per month are very reasonable. And given it’s currently vacant, a quick closing is possible! How fantastic is that? Want to know more or book a private viewing? Email steve@urbaneer.com!
