Tracing it’s history back to the early 1800’s, Brockton Village is a vibrant and dynamic mix of old and new. Home to Toronto’s thriving 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 it’s ongoing coming-of-age.

Situated at the corner of Shirley Street and Northern Place, 49B is one of four brand new 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 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 studio without the need for renovation. How fantastic is that?

Thoughtful use of quality materials is evident, as the plank-style hardwood floors, heated polished concrete, 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!

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 Churrascuria, Wallflower Bar, and Bota Fogo Coffee. 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 arrival in 2015 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!

49B 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 1375 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.
