For those who celebrate a walking life, this garden terrace unit is just west of 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 diner Counter! To the immediate north is Queen West Village, formerly the Irish immigrant enclave known as Claretown in the mid 19th century. Offering the urban dweller an eclectic range of shops and services, including neighbourhood amenities that serve daily life like the organic butcher and the indulgent baker, are an abundance of home furnishing shops, art galleries and clothing retailers. 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-west 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.

208 Niagara is also around the corner from Stanley Park with its dog-friendly walk and outdoor pool, and just down the street from Trinity-Bellwoods park with its organic market, meandering paths and community centre. It’s also a stroll to the very urbane Drake Hotel and Ossington Avenue where a burgeoning art gallery mise-en-scene and grooving social stops are popping up amidst the traditional Portuguese bakers and butchers still serving their long-established clientele. It truly doesn’t get better than this!

Completed by Triloft Developments in 2000, The Kings comprises a loft style condominium mid-rise of around 200 units on the northeast corner of King Street West at Niagara, with around 125 stacked townhomes located behind the complex on the quieter north side of the site. While the two buildings have their own condominium corporation designation, they share in the maintenance and repair of the underground garage and common amenities including a fitness centre, sauna and party room. The pretty enclave of townhomes range from around 600 square feet to over 1300 square feet, with each unit featuring a private patio or roof terrace.

This stylish terrace suite is around 755 square feet of turn-key living. Configured as a one bedroom plus separate private den, this unit has a spacious open concept entertainment space fitted with a maple shaker cabinet kitchen featuring new charcoal laminate counters, stainless steel sink, goosneck faucet and classic cream subway tile backsplash. Featuring blond maple laminate floors, an abundance of new track lighting, and fresh paint, this open airy space is ideal for hosting friends. The 4-piece washroom has been recently upgraded with a new light fixture, sink, faucet and wall mirror, and the master bedroom has newly installed waffle broadloom in a neutral beige and fresh cream colour paint. And the stacking washer/dryer is less than two years old!

Of particular note is the separate den. This private room lends itself very well to guest accommodations, a home office, or as a second bedroom for your child. In a city where space is a premium, costly, and a second potential bedroom hard to find, this extra bonus room is ideal for a young family. With a covered patio at the front, and an open expansive garden terrace at the back (barbecue anyone?), this well-proportioned suite with one car underground parking and modest common fees is excellent value! Ready for occupancy as soon as 30 days, this is truly a smart purchase!
