Welcome to Suite 906, 9 Sudbury Street!
For those who celebrate a walking life, this upper stacked townhouse with sun-drenched south-facing roof terrace is steps to King West’s stellar restaurant and nightlife scene, and a hop, skip and a jump to the Thompson Hotel on Bathurst Street featuring the always-open Thompson Diner! To the immediate north is Queen West Village, formerly the Irish immigrant enclave known as Claretown in the mid 19th century. In addition to the eclectic range of shops, services, and neighbourhood amenities that serve daily life – like the organic butcher and the indulgent baker – there are an abundance of home furnishing shops, art galleries and clothing retailers to please and entertain. There’s also a superb selection of restaurants ranging from five-star to ethnic, some fantastic local pubs plus a burgeoning collection of charming coffee shops. It’s also a short stroll north-east to Ossington Avenue where a burgeoning art gallery mise-en-scene and stylin’ social stops are popping up amidst the traditional Portuguese bakers and butchers still serving their long-established clientele. Don’t miss stellar offerings like, Reposado, which, apart form being a favorite of our sellers, rises above the rest in the arenas of both live music and tequila. And Pizza Libretto has also gained a stellar reputation as one of the area’s most well-loved eateries!
Sudbury Street is also around the corner from Stanley Park with its dog-friendly walk and outdoor pool, and within walking distance of Trinity-Bellwoods Park with its organic market, meandering paths, and community centre. It’s also a stroll to the very urbane Drake Hotel! It truly doesn’t get better than this!
Completed in 2000 by Urbancorp Developments, the Sudbury Townhomes are in high demand due to the irresistible combination of an outstanding location plus thoughtful layouts and reasonable maintenance fees. The four-storey rows of units feature both one floor and multi-level suites with generous roof top terraces reserved for a few lucky units. Layouts range in size from just under 700 square feet up to almost 1800 square feet. The lower level (walk-down) suites are single storey and have a garden terrace outside their front doors. The main level (walk-up) suites are single storey as well, with a balcony off the living room. The upper level suites are 2 storey, plus an upper landing that houses the HVAC system, the washer/dryer, and a walk-out to the private rooftop terrace. And there are some large suites spread out over all four storeys. Most suites have dedicated parking spots while visitors can park along Sudbury Street. Among the earliest townhouse developments in the King West and Liberty Village neighbourhoods, these thoughtfully-designed residences are popular for those seeking the benefits of low-maintenance condo living with the freedom of having your own front door. Well-suited to couples and young-families – plus dog-lovers – these ‘houses-in-the-sky’ offer an affordable alternative to the freehold housing market.
Townhouse 906 is a beautifully updated multi-level suite having 1105 square feet of interior living space plus 288 square feet of outdoor living (see floor plan prepared by PlanIt Measuring). Entering near grade through its own private front door, the suite walks up a flight of new hardwood stairs to an entertainment level with a 2-piece powder room at the top of the stairs. The open space plan is anchored by recently installed plank engineered wood floors, smooth ceilings (the dreadful popcorn stucco was recently removed), recessed lighting, and a chic modern chandelier – just some of several intelligent renovations demonstrating both great taste and pride of ownership! The entertainment space connects to a gorgeous cook’s kitchen with marble encased peninsula, stainless steel appliances, and on-trend duo-toned shaker kitchen cabinets. Also of note, a gas fireplace hook-up is roughed-in between the pair of south-facing windows if you like! We especially love the sun-drenched south facing windows overlooking the mature trees lining the rear of the property which gives this home its ‘tree house in the sky’ vibe (not to mention the appreciated extra privacy)! Oh, and before you head to the second floor, via the newly carpeted stairs with brand new railings and banister, don’t forget to take a peak at the oh-so-rare walk-in pantry (there is so much storage in this house!)
On the upper level sleeping sanctuary, what was once three petite bedrooms is now two generous rooms. The highlight is a grand master bedroom with south exposure, great proportions, and the custom built-in wardrobes designed to accommodate the needs of a sweet twosome. Don’t worry, if your shoe or tie collection outstrips the capacity of the built-in storage (an impressive feat!) there is plenty of space in this master retreat to fit in a dresser or two, as well. The second bedroom (the traditional master for these models) is ideal as a kid’s room, guest room or even a great home office. The second floor is rounded out by a full bath – with upgraded vanity – equally accessible by both bedrooms.
Continue up the stairs to discover one of the most coveted features of these upper stacked townes: a fantastic upper level (where you’ll find the stacked washer/dryer and heating/cooling system) that’s dominated by an exceptional private roof top terrace! For those in the know, outdoor space is at a premium in the city and this glorious outdoor oasis is definitely exceptional. Easily accommodating all the accoutrements of your dream outdoor living space, this stargazer’s retreat boasts room for lounging, dining, cooking with space to cultivate your green thumb! This terrace is begging for barbeques with friends – or cocktails for two – under a canopy of twinkling stars!
For those seeking a well-executed, flexible space that balances scale and proportion – ideally suited to a couple or young family – this top-drawer tony towne is definitely worthy of your consideration.
