A Contemporary Towne In Brockton Villageoffered at $829,000
Do you desire a home in a neighbourhood where life’s necessities are within a short stroll, where the sense of community and culture is something you can reach out and touch, and where a distinct sense of identity and place attracts individuals who desire an authentic urban living experience?
Welcome to 49C Shirley Street!
Tracing it’s history back to the early 1800’s, thriving Brockton Village is a vibrant and dynamic mix of old and new. Located just west of Toronto’s Little Portugal, this unique and intimate west end neighbourhood stays true to its original village roots as a community within a community. If you’re someone who genuinely enjoys and embraces an urban existence, this is the neighbourhood where you’ll be afforded the opportunity to take part in an exciting new chapter in its ongoing coming-of-age.
An eminently walkable neighbourhood bordered on the east by Lansdowne Avenue with Peter’s No-Frills and the Sorauren Farmers Market nearby. To the north you’ll find Dundas Street West, where you’ll love exploring restaurants like Albany Pizza and Gaucho’s and – just a bit further east L’Ouvrier, and on nearby College Street, we’re fans of the baker Prairie Boy Bread and famed cheese shop La Fromagerie, not to mention our west side go-to java stop The Common Espresso Bar. You’re just steps away from the Dundas and College Streetcar Lines, and for those who drive, there’s easy access to the Gardiner Expressway, Lakeshore Boulevard, and the Queensway. Considering jetting to your next destination? With the recent arrival of the Union-Pearson Express to Pearson International Airport, the nearest express train stop at Dundas West and Bloor will be a very short cab-ride away!
Situated at the corner of Shirley Street and Northern Place, 49C Shirley Street is one of four modern contemporary town homes designed by architect Maurizio Trotta and completed in 2013 by his development company Threshold 31. Each of these homes combines time-tested standards of construction with a focus on human-centered design. To that end, each property is designed to easily adapt to the owner’s changing needs and priorities, reconfigurable without the need for contractors, materials and in most instances, regulatory approval.
Plumbing and wiring has been efficiently “over-built” to enable the widest array of uses to accommodate single occupancy, dual occupancy, home office or separate studio without the need for renovation. Nanny suite? Fully fitted office with the possibility of its own built in kitchenette and luxe three-piece washroom? Or a convenient, comfy and uber-private spot for out of town family to land when they’re in town? All of these options are possible – how fantastic is that?
With 2 well-proportioned bedrooms and a ground-level den, third bedroom or recreation room with garden walk-out, thoughtful use of quality materials is evident, as the plank-style hardwood floors, heated polished concrete floors in the lower level, imported Scavolini kitchen cabinetry, custom engineered stairs and exposed structural elements contribute to the clarity and openness of the sun-drenched interior spaces. This is luxury at it’s smartest!
49C Shirley Street is a beautifully executed modern take on the traditional rowhouse which has become one of Toronto’s most enduring and beloved styles. Encompassing approximately 1245 sq.ft of living space (according to builder’s plan) and an additional 120 square feet of outdoor-under-the-stars rooftop sky terrace living, this swell dwell freehold rowhouse represents an exceptional opportunity for one fortunate buyer.
