Welcome to this luxe three bedroom two bath suite located at 15 McMurrich Street, Suite 1205.

Arguably at the nexus of the Torontonian urban universe, Yonge and Bloor, this sleek suite sits surrounded by amenities designed to entice, engage and enhance urban lifestyle.

Whether to amuse and challenge the palate, you’re a short stroll to some of the best in gastronomic delight, including some of our faves like “One” in Hazelton Lanes or “La Societe” on Bloor (LOVE the terrace!). You’re also steps from the city’s cultural activities like the Royal Ontario Museum and Metropolitan Reference Library, or entertainment (the Manulife Centre cinema is one of our favourites). It’s steps to Pusateri’s Fine Foods at Bay and Yorkville. And of course you can indulge in a little retail therapy like Holt Renfrew or Hazelton Lanes, and even the Summerhill shops, including L’Atelier, the Summerhill Liquor Store, while savouring lunch at Patachou. And if you’re a pet owner, or a tennis player, nothing beats the bucolic setting of Ramsden Park a block to the north. Without question, this area brings the “location, location, location” mantra into a whole new context. This area is also about access, and is within walking distance of public transit at the Yonge / Bloor or Rosedale Subway stations, and close to Don Valley Parkway via Rosedale Valley Road. Everything you need is at your doorstep (including a Canadian Tire, close by to pick up items in a hurry, if need be!).

Tucked away one block west of Yonge Street north of Davenport, 15 McMurrich Street was built in 1980-81 by Cadillac Fairview and Belmont Construction Limited. 15 McMurrich is one of four buildings on a shared site (all built by the same developer), the first being 18 Davenport (which is a couple of years older) and 800 and 900 Yonge, (which are five years younger). These four independent buildings were built having the common use of underground garage and share the exterior patio/podium as an element of use and design. 15 Mcmurrich comprises 15 floors and contains 103 generous well-proportioned suites that outrival most of their contemporary cousins for space and value. The majority of the units are owner-occupied, and this reputable building is exceptionally well-managed.

There are several amenities in the complex including: a ground floor party room with a catering kitchen and bar, a library, card room, excercise room, bicycle storage below the second floor podium, and an exterior landscaped outdoor terrace shared with 890 & 900 Yonge, and 18 Davenport, accessed from the second floor or the walk up from the Visitor Parking level. It also has a recently renovated luxurious lobby that feels like a boutique hotel, and a top-notch 24-hour concierge with staff who are truly personable and attentive to the residents needs.

This 3-bedroom two bath, lavish suite of 1612 square feet (per building management) offers a unique “urbanscape view” and has both south and east exposure. There is a well-proportioned 100 square foot balcony, perfect for drinking in the “bright lights, big city” while sipping coffee or a cocktail with friends. Since 2005, the owners have done extensive renovations, including converting the master suite into two bedrooms (or use one as a bespoke dressing room), doubling its usage.  With dark parquet floors throughout the entertainment zone, and new laminate floor in the bedrooms this space encourages urban retreat.  The 2005 kitchen is sleek and modern, done in soft pale grey laquer completed by brand name ‘Laurentide’, granite counters and travertive stone floors by Yarrabee, and quality stainless steel appliances. The expansive L-shaped living/dining area has been combined with the former solarium (now a study) to create a massive entertainment space with floor-to-ceiling windows, lots of natural light and, with the balcony walk-out, plenty of fresh air.

This swanky suite of almost 1700 square feet of indoor/outdoor luxury also includes the exclusive use of one car parking located on the B1 level which has its own separate entrance and holds far fewer cars than levels B2 and B3. This means hardly any traffic inside the garage and a speedier exit. The exclusive use locker has dimensions of 72″D x 81″ H x 40″ W.

Does the thought of New York-style lights and quiet energy dazzle you?  Could this bright spot at the hub of the city be yours?
